Good Choice for the Honda Ridgeline

Purchase: I bought this intake because in summer weather, the Ridgeline needs a little extra power, and because it has a cover over the top, which I thought might prevent water from entering the intake (It's open on the back side). Also, it was the least expensive. The shipping was free, it took about a week (surprisingly, it took several days to "fill" the order and for me to get a UPS tracking number). Installation: The directions were barely adequate, leaving out some little steps such as adding lock washers to the bolts, but with only three pieces to work with, I got it done in about an hour. The box sits right up against the metal fender, and the shape is a few millimeters off, so I had to force it a little, which scraped the inside of the fender (no will will see, its behind the air box). Performance: It sounds good, its barely any louder under normal diving, but really gets loud under full throttle, and loudest when the VTEC kicks in at about 4000 rpm.
Delivers on its promise

I've been running this on my truck for several weeks, which happens to be over 1,000 miles. I installed it in less than 15 minutes. Gas mileage improved about 2 mpg, and engine pickup is much better. It's quiet under normal use, but roars and makes the truck jump like a scalded cat when you stomp it.
