I was just curious how loud the stillen intakes really are. I don't want my car to be really loud but would love the performance enhancement.

Thanks

They are almost as quiet as the stock unit. The resonator between the MAF and Throttle Body keep the noise levels way down.

OMG! i can't believe that you don't want your intake to be loud. that is the best sounding part on the car. i love hearing the intake over exaughst.

i agree sometimes its cool to hear that deep throaty sound but the 3.5's tend to get annoying at times.
I disagree.. I love the sound of my CAI.. not so crazy about the missing resonator though.. I need to put a magnaflow in as a resonator as right now it drones at low speeds. Might have to look for some clips I posted on "another" forum ;) :)

i have a pop charger from south west autoworks for my 2.5
its no overly loud, but the is a difference in sound, esp when im heavy onthe gas, i always get people turning their heads and looking.

only time i notice its realy loud is when its in a tunnel or parking garage, to me it sound alot like an R1 bike with loud exhaust pipes, if you can picture that sound, i too ahave a clip up someplace on that other "lesser" board. ill have to look for it

I have to agree the sound of an intake is awesome. With my Frankencar w/Apexi I kind of get the best of both worlds. During normal driving it is almost non-existant. But when I get on it boy does it screem... I LOVE IT!

I was racing down a street with just my stillen intake. My friend who lives nearby heard my car and mistaked it with something more expensive only to see me flying by :)


Does anyone know if there is a replacement tube that can be boought to fit in between the maf and throttle body instead of that rubber hosing piece ?
