Default Civic Type R 04/05 induction kit

Well im looking at getting a Type R as my "first" car. I saw first because i've been driving around in my mums Jazz for the past 3 years.
Insurance etc is all sorted if I get one.

Anyway I was looking at air intake kits. Main aim of it was to increase the mpg a bit however, after watching:

Im not too sure if I like how loud it actually is. Im no boy racer, so I dont do Saxo's with body kits, lights, exhausts etc.

Are there any kits which are loudish, but not ott like that viper? Looking at price range of 200-250

If you want to change the sound, just get a CAI and a Flowmaster exhaust. (They have clips on their website of how all their different mufflers sound.)

wow cold air intake is not going to really improve your milage
if you buy a type r just remember they are highly stolen cars you will want to garage it every night and be careful where you park it along with for how long trust me if you arent into the sceen i would recomend against buying it you might regret it

and please dear @#d dont put a flowmaster muffler on a honda they sound terrible just look around ebay for a very cheap full exhaust most of them say what their decible rating is but please not a flowmaster
here is my sleeper sedan build up thread
