Post would like to know some characteristics of the some intakes

I want to get an intake. I would like to know some characteristics of some of the intakes from rallispec, cobb, ganz, weapon r etc. Sound? loss of low-end? more pull on high-end? fit and finish? effects of rain?
I would to keep as much of the low-end as possible since I was torque deprived from my previous car (civic vtec engine). Something not too loud would be good too (my civic was freakin loud).

If you want to keep your low end and if you drive a MY00 your best bet is the Ganzflow intake.

However I do believe for ultimate top end power, get a Rallispec or Minnam intake. Lose a bit of low end but gain up top.

And probably the best of everything, Cobb Tuning's intake.

Would have to agree on the Ganzflow. Best bang for the buck. and you don't lose any low end. Cobb's is amazing, if you can afford it.

I say Cobb for the ultimate. That said i built my own. It pipes all the way down to the frount "brake duct: opening in the passenger side fender well, and that is where the filter is. Of all the diffrent configurations i tried it worked the best. The old but dyno, and highway 40-70 testing showed it worked the best. The loudest was a Apex-i style metal mesh filter right below the passenger side hood vent.
My too sence.

Another vote for GanzFlow. Definite noticeable gains, sweet howl at WOT above about 3500 RPM, and you can't beat the price. More top end than stock, and without sacrificing any low end, but even adding to it. Sweet intake.

GanzFlow intake and K&N filter are my only performance mods, and I get 15.5 @ 90.3 MPH on my G-Tech consistently. G-Tech shows about 3-5 MPH higher trap since it shows speed at the end of the 1/4 instead of an average of last 60"(?) at the strip. Times are supposed to be right, though.

Read this: http://www.cobbtuning.com/tech/airflow/index.html

At first you may wonder what this has to do with anything, but midway through the article Trey discusses the purpose of the torque chamber and the intake tract. In a thread just the other day where someone was asking about a Rallispec intake-- a silcone elbow that eliminates the torque chamber-- I expressed my opinion.

Perhaps now that I've found a source to corroborate my opinion others will believe me instead of wondering if I have an axe to grind.

Hope this helps.

I like the TRi Tuning Intake ...it has the best of both worlds ...a torque chamber keep your low end, and then, basicly the same setup as rallispec or JC, to gain the top end!

Question

I know the Cobbs intake is fairly new, but has anyone done a direct comparison of it with Larry's? They are my current top two choices, and if I had to pick today, I would go with the Ganzflow since I do not want to loose any low end torque (I drive daily in Northern Virginia stop and go traffic )
