    takeda retain sri owners...

    I installed my SRI and drove it for 1000 miles with the pro5r oiled filter
    Great sound, and nice pull above 3k rpm but I felt like I lost torquebelow 3k RPMs so I switched back to my stock intake. (since daily driving im not revving it passed 3k)
    I enjoyed it at first but after reinstalling my stock intake I found that it was more enjoyable to drive because I definately felt more torque in the low end.
    Also if you look up the dyno chart for this product, afe only advertises power gains above 3k rpms.
    Any other takeda retain sri owners have any thoughts on this? Does anyone know of a solution to the low end torque loss?
    sold the honda

    You might need to get it tuned after installing the intake. I heard that just by installing alone doesn't show gains but decrease it because engine is tuned for stock, and not aftermarket.
