Default Intake sound???

I just put an AEM cold air intake on my 99 civic...sound is not realy loud...is that usuall with most AEMs...is there a way to increase the sound? Also...it came with two bypass tubes and seems like only one of the two needed to be used...is that also normal? Also...ne suggestions on exhaust...prob gonna do a catback

from what my reading skills are, i believe the only thing that will give you a sound is an exchaust and i think Greddy is your best bet

You don't need 2 bypass valves for your intake. I don't have one on my AEM intake, and it is sometimes loud enough to sound like an exhaust. Try running without a bypass valve and see if that makes a difference.

It really depens on your rpm's. If you get over 4,000 it should be roarin'.

exactly, it all depends on the rpms, the higher they go the more noise you're gonna get, keep in mind this isnt an exhaust you arent gonna be making THAT much noise, if you want the sound go for a catback, greddy, magnaflow, apexi, etc., thats where you will fill your desire for that mean sound

I took this video a while back because I always wanted to see what my feet looked like while I was driving (don't ask why...), and in this clip you can hear the intake quite clearly because I was on a straightaway. I was shifting at around 5500 rpm I think and I got up to about 60 before I broke off.

Instructions: Right-click on above link and hit copy, open Windows Media, hit Ctrl U, hit Ctrl V, hit Enter.

Edit: That's a completely stock D16Y8 with only the intake.
