I wasn’t a big fan of the cone filter that came with the TSX. The stock air box had been removed for the most part, and replaced with a generic cone air filter. Under quick acceleration the TSX had the adolescent-esque screen of the intake. I’m old. Er, older. When I was younger and first got into the automotive scene, I would have wanted that sound. Now I just want quiet.
I’ve always been a fan of Comptech or CT Engineering parts so I decided to take advantage of HeelToe Automotives Black Friday deals and purchase the OEM parts needed (lower air box) and the CT Icebox. =D
I certainly like how the Icebox fills that area of the engine bay nicely. Like it belongs there. Gone is the scream, replaced with a nice, quiet, but strong acceleration. I think there is even a slight whistle/whine with the installation of the Icebox and air horn under the drivers side headlight behind the bumper.
The Icebox makes me happy. =)
