Since sound is so subjective, is it a lot louder?

Its a lot louder than the stock box. But when you are idling around its quiet and has a little hum when you accelerate a little.

Here are the videos. I did 3.

This video was shot inside the engine bay, right next to the CAI.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UgFx...ature=youtu.be

This video was shot inside the car with the windows up. The later part of the video I floor it.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-u0ql...ature=youtu.be

This video was with the windows down. I floored it until I got cut off by another car.

Enjoy!

Thank you, Craig !
It does sound awesome. I gave you a Rep + for this.
I am not that into "loud" cars, but I do like the sound of yours.

Is it possible to put back the engine cover once the intake is installed?

That sounds awesome...do you have any other mods? Exhaust or anything else? I'm trying to decide if I should spend the extra money on the K&N over the Steeda, and listening to your videos convinced me to go with the K&N! I don't know that anybody else has that particularly intake installed yet, so keep us posted...I'm particularly interested in MPG (although that might be tough the first week or so while you enjoy the extra HP...haha).

Honestly, I couldn't tell you. I have a SE so it didn't come with the engine cover. But the intake doesn't appear that you would have a hard time putting the engine cover back on. I don't know anyone in the Austin area that has a Titanium to try it on either.

My car is all stock with the exception of the intake. I plan to see if my fuel mileage has increased this next fill up. I drive about 150 miles a day so I try to keep my foot out it. Most of the time I just use the cruise control. I plan on getting an FSWerks Race Exhaust here soon.

Don't forget, as mentioned in this thread you can get the K&N from Auto Anything with a coupon for $267 shipped.
