    Product Description

    AEM’s V2 intake systems use a patented dual chamber design to produce the most power and torque of any other intake system available—even our own Cold Air systems.

    On a dyno graph, the area under the power band (or power curve) represents the amount of effort that an engine is producing. The larger the overall area under the curve, the more power your engine is making. The AEM V2 utilizes a dual chamber (using two different diameters and lengths of piping) that creates multiple frequency sound waves to produce the largest area under the curve of any intake system on the market. These sound waves help charge the cylinders with more air throughout the entire rpm range and are what enables the V2 to outperform even our own Cold Air systems.

    We have found that inlet length plays a vital role in the power production of V2 systems and not all V2 induction systems relocate the filter outside of the engine compartment. In these cases, we performed extensive temperature testing to locate the filter in the coolest area of the engine compartment to achieve the lowest inlet temperatures possible. Please refer to our temperature testing procedures for more information.

    Sounds Awesome! (06 RSX-S)

    Pros: Amazing sound when I hit VTEC. During my first test drive, I thought I screwed up the installation because the sound caught me by surprise! The sound is so different than stock! A slight whistling sound at around 3000 RPM is also pretty cool (I suppose some people may find this to be a con). Cons: The fitment was slightly off for my 06 RSX-s. The problem was the horn (I think) in the engine bay was getting in the way so I had to force it in. Also, I don't feel any power gains in my butt dyno, but I'm sure there's some (even if it's very little).

    AEM V2 on '06 RSX Type-S

    It definitely produces HP gains throughout the RPMs. The sound is amazing, especially when "VTEC kicks in yo." Looks great in the engine bay. The fitment is somewhat off(the filter touches the shifter cables). It will suffer from heatsoak after driving a long distance while its hot out(maybe wrap it, idk). Overall, very pleased.

    AEM V2 Intake - 05 RSX-S

    Very easy installation, no special type of tools required just a screwdriver & a socket wrench set, Acceleration improved & you can feel the V-Tech Scream & the power as well.

    great, recommended

    this was the first mod i got on my 02 base. i love the gunmetal grey color, looks great under the hood. it doesnt (as far as i can tell) affect the gas mileage and gives pretty good gains for the price. a good buy

    vtek goes bruuuum

    When I first got this in the mail I was happy, but when I installed it (only took me 30min) and took it for a NICE TEST DRIVE...All Hell Break Loose...When vtek kicked in I was all smiles...pretty much it flies like a butterfly and stings like bee...

    deeply satisfied

    When i first purchased this (as my first mod) i was skeptical about how hard it would be to put on and the effects it would bring. But, in less than an hour, I had put on this monster intake with much less effort than expected. And as if that wasn't satisfying enough, when I hit the gas, it definitely roared much better than I expected. The power gains also caught my attention with better torque and throttle response. And when it hits v-tec, the sound turns heads. I definitely recommend this to anyone making a first mod or replacing their old intake!

    great sound, better power.

    one of my first upgrades, and an intake i feel is one of the best upgrades for people just starting to tune their rsx. very nice performance, great sound, especially high rpms, and in vtec. i had fitment issues with mine though, so i went with password jdms power chamber intake, and love it.

    AEM Engineered to Outperform

    I just recently purchased my RSX December of 2010 and boy was I ever excited to start investing some money into my car. The V2 intake is the first mod I purchased and I am more than content with the buy. As far as performance, it gave me a slight boost throughout the car. I noticed the difference at higher RPMs. The best overall plus about this intake is the sound. It sounds like a freaking monster! Right around 3K RPM it begins to growl, than after the VTEC kicks in it releases an even louder roar!! I'm riding with the windows up and music above 30 and I can still hear the intake!!! I love it! LOL! I believe the price is a little high but it was a good buy. If you are looking for high quality sound, than I recommend you look into purchasing the V2. I give it a 4 out of 5. IF the price was a little lower, I'd most def rate it 5 out of 5.

    The only thing wrong with the V2 Intake is the new location for the intake sensor where is located by the air filter, but my sensor wasn't long enough to reach. i didn't want to cut any wires to make it longer. i had to drill another hole in the same spot on the stock intake tube where the intake sensor was before. i plugged up the other hole on the V2 Intake. my car is not having any problems, the intake is working as it should.

    The AEM V2 Short Ram Intake was the first mod I did to my 05 rsx type-s. Installation took less than an hour, and was simple enough. This intake sounds awesome whenever you hit the gas, and even better once v-tech is hit. I'd recommend this product to anyone looking for an affordable first mod.

    Ordered my intake last week and got it in Monday *picked up and installed today*. It took about an hour and a half for me and a buddy to do *I'm not incredibly mechanically inclined* because I'm a moron...It took me like 5 minutes to change ratchet adapters/sizes/extensions.. V-Tech is beautiful. Gives off a nice loud scream as soon as you go in and you can def tell when shifting if you missed it or not. Some heatsoak which is expected out of an SRI but none the less works great. It does sit right above the tranny and a mount for the stock airbox will bump it if you don't remove. Mine wasn't coming out so i just left it there. Def would recommend this product for someone looking for an SRI or even CAI!

    Amazing Intake: The Pros.... The Cons

    Got my intake mid July... put it on with my friend in about 45 minutes. Of course the cosmetic appeal of it was apparent right as i started my engine. The Pros She's a beefy intake at high RPMS but my favorite thing is she makes a nice sucking noise at 1/4 throttle that people mistake for a small turbo all the time. I was at the car wash last week and the four kids drying my car thought it was turbo. So that's really cool. And lastly of course of course when I first hit Vtakkk! (I mean vtech.... I mean V-tech)... {Get it right people} When Vtec engages its a beautiful sound and if your a good driver it sounds amazing when you up shift and hit 6000rpms instantly again! The Cons. First off, the thing heat soaks for sure. Sometimes on a humid summer day my car is boggy-mic-boggersin, the intake gets ridiculously hot and my car has significant horsepower loss. My friend has a B18C1 I/H/E with a CT hybrid intake and he'll keep up with me real good on the hot days. My other big concern is when I got my intake and opened the box i found two huge dents in the intake. One of them is right were the sleeve meets the thinner tube and is in plain view when installed. I'm sure this causes air flow problems. but even worse the metal is bent were the intake meets the throttle body.... uhhhhh...luckily the Kevlar tubing and the metal clamps they give you diminish the problem but the bends are there. And lastly. I don't know if this V2 is even the one for my car b/c it was not a perfect fit. The filter touches parts of my transmission and I didn't like that when i was installing. Regardless I love it but I just wish it came perfect for the price I paid. Still amazing!

    this was my first mod for my 02 rsx type s. it sounds amazing with vtec kicks in. but now that i have my dcrh's in, i can feel it heat soak a bit which really sux. i would suggest this intake to ppl who like to do roll races instead of digs.

    Better for the daily driver

    AEM v2 VS Injen CAI is always going to be a heated discussion. Ive had bolth on my car. Injen is noticeably louder and some added performance. But seeing that it's a CAI it sits way to low to the ground seeing what i did is sucked some water up and craked my mainfold. V2 sits right next to the engin so it does get heat soke. Witch robs perfomance and sound. Honisty if you want a product that will last aslong as your car go with the V2. Best qulitly very well made and the replacment filters are free. And you really dont have to worry about water getting up under the hood as much as the Injen.

    Feel the difference

    This is my first after market intake but I can say I can truely feel the difference. I just put it on yesterday evening and the took it for a test ride with my 360lbs brother and my 110lbs nephew and it was still faster then stock with just me in it. When I took the solo run I got some serious wheel spin when hitting second gear. There is a slightly different feel all the way through however it's best performance is when the I-vtec kicks in. I have not experience heat soak yet however that was a night run so we will see as time goes on but I have no complaints about the performance of this intake and nothing but love for what it has done for my car. Oh by the way I ordered from Auto anything which also has free shipping but they charge tax. I recommend buying this from ClubRSX as the price you see is what you get.

    The Aem V2 sits right next to the engine. Living in florida the V2 is easily heat soaked, with little gains during everyday driving.

    Very satisfied..

    Installation was a breeze, love the new sound, louder V-tec crossover, and the gains in Hp were very noticeable in pulls. Was debating between CAI and Short Ram, but I'm glad i chose Aem V2.
