Acura RSX Cold Air Intakes, Performance Air Intake System
Acura RSX Cold Air Intake and can be a great way to get a quick and easy boost in power for your RSX. Cold Air Intake systems work in the same way: rerouting the stock air intake delivery system for the best performance out of your Acura RSX. Normally, the air filter in your RSX is located in the engine bay where it can be easily accessed and replaced. The problem with this is, the heat of the engine bay has adverse effects on your engine’s performance.
The RSX Cold Air Intake systems we offer extend the air intake tube to a lower position in your vehicle to collect denser (colder) air away from the hot engine bay. Also, the air filter is moved into a frontward position allowing for the cool air to be “rammed” into your engine, hence the term ram air intake or air induction intake that is used sometimes to refer to RSX intake Pipes. This combination of cold and dense air being shot into your Acura RSX’s engine results in immediate and noticeable performance gains.

Acura RSX Cold Air Intake System Frequently Asked Questions
Can I install my new Cold Air Intake myself?
If you have a decent amount of technical knowledge and can follow instructions, you should be able to follow the instructions and install a cold air intake onto your Acura RSX yourself. K&N FIPK intakes by far offer the best instructions with multiple pictures, though AEM is close behind.
What kind of power can I expect to get on my Acura RSX from an AEM, Spyder, or K&N FIPK Cold Air Intake?
Power increases vary by application, but you could expect anywhere from a 3-15hp increase under optimal conditions.
Are Cold Air Intakes safe in the rain?
NO CAR should ever be operated during flooding. Unlike short ram intakes, cold air intakes draw air from a relatively low position. Your vehicle can technically ingest water from rain puddles, streams, floods, etc if your car is lowered or the water is deep enough, and damage your engine. To prevent this, you could install the appropriate sized AEM Bypass valve onto your Acura RSX’s AEM or Spyder Cold Air Intake, however, we instead recommend switching to your vehicles stock intake system if you anticipate driving through flood conditions. K&N FIPK Intakes do not require bypass valves since their design is higher than AEM and Spyder, and are relatively safe from water ingestion.
