Cold air Intake + Tune

So I installed my Injen CAI on my rsx, sounds nice, speed and torque is noticeable but obviously not drastic.

Do people run tunes with CAI?


I did a bit of research and some people don't run tunes but I want to fully take advantage of the CAI

Some do, others don't. The factory tune can and will compensate for the increase in air flow via fuel trims. That being said, a tune won't provide you with much unless you plan on opening up the exhaust as well.

The other thing you have to take into consideration is cost. Kpro and Ktuner would not be worth the cost for just a CAI. Look into getting a reflash. It'll give you a little more pep and cost half as much.

I'd stick with the reflash then, unless you plan on doing more down the road like a race header, cams, pistons, etc.
