What kind of intake do you guys recommend for a 2018 Accord 1.5??? Stuck between afe, mishimoto, or k&n?
thanks!
None unless your doing it to eek every last ounce of power out of it and have already done a tune, dp and intercooler already. That being said, they are all basically the same, a filter on a stick. Go with the one you can get the best deal on.

Personally, I believe the best bang for the buck on the 1.5T is the PRL Stage 1 intake system. Cost effective and an easy install. You may want to wait and see if PRL produces an HVI for that platform before pulling the trigger. Air Intake gains are honestly negligible from my experience and the only brand that has seemed to actually make some great intakes for the Accord has been PRL.

I run a Mishimoto CAI on my Accord mostly for the carbon lid that looks nice in the engine bay, the gains seems pretty small until I did some more modifications to it.

Has any of these expensive intakes been scientifically proven to significantly increase HP at all or even in the USABLE range of the power band where do most of our driving 1500-3500 RPM?

Is a gain of less that 4 or 5 HP enough to justify spending $300-$400. That's a $100 per HP!! I'd rather buy a tune for that money at least I know I'd be making 30-50HP

The car already comes with a cold air intake from the factory and paper filters have scientifically been shown to flow better than ANY aftermarket cotton or foam filters while trapping debris.

Can someone explain the obsession with modifying intakes? If you REALLY want to increase power output the exhaust is where it all backed up at baby!

It's been scientifically proves that on modern turbocharged cars a downpipe or full exhaust upgrade actually increases power in all areas under the power curve...

Maybe it just for the sound...

Someone educate me with facts, not feelings. PLEASE?!
