For those with comptech headers, how is the sound compared to the CAI? I have the AEM CAI and I just love the sound of it when VTEC kicks in. Is the sound of the headers even better than the CAI? If it is, I can't wait.:D

BTW, do headers really make a difference? FYI, I have a 99 TL.

You can't really hear the sound from the headers.....your CAI's sound will overpower it. And yes, it does make a difference for the 99TLs. I've had mine since.....1999 :D

from what i have heard (i don't have the header and cai yet :(), the header is what really gives extra power to the car, get it! it's worth the bucks imho.

and also people say that the header doesn't add much noise to the car?

Hey Binh,

You don't need sound comparison because you'll have them both, right?? :D

I don't have a TL-S

but i do have a S2000, from what i heard is the Comptec stuff is far superior than AEM. So for ur supa ride, I suggest the better stuff. Also, anybody have a dyno for both?

thanks!

well i guess there is a reason why comptech is probably the most respectable company for aftermarket parts on acura cars. they are pricey but i like their products. i hope i could spill out 1k for the header :)

see thats the thing if that is true then why on integra's people go for dc or kamkaize's for headers and seem to get the same or close to the comptechs. i think they are just trying to hold the market on the parts until enough of the cars get popular enough so that other companies will produce them.so the prices will go down like the parts for civic and integra's

DC makes great headers for imports but not for TL. :(

Try to get them used because I wouldn't buy it brand new cause I don't think it is worth the ~$1300 price tag (without installation).:mad:
