- it's not impossible to have a driveable CSL setup


it seems like you have a history of misconstruing the things i say on this forum?

come to think of it there was the thread where i had a significant issue with a guy claiming his S65 swap was street legal and for some reason you chimed in with a response that assumed i was supporting him


i think you have a personal vendetta against me and it seems like it's unfounded

Civic comparison: http://m3forum.net/m3forum/showpost....0&postcount=40

Claims of drivability issues (also stating that you think it's ridiculous anyone goes through with the mod): http://m3forum.net/m3forum/showthrea...post1067731205


VF Intake comparison (stating that the only reason people don't like the VF intake is because it's not carbon - so it's not a negative reaction like you claim): http://m3forum.net/m3forum/showthrea...post1067708786

Statement of the supporting mods being more ludicrously priced than an OE CSL intake: http://m3forum.net/m3forum/showthrea...post1067703340

More positive words about VF intake (not in comparison with CSL this time): http://m3forum.net/m3forum/showthrea...post1067287077

I never even made note of who you are until this thread / your comments in the turner thread. To your point on the S65 post, I looked that up, and I immediately apologized after you cleared up your viewpoint: http://m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?p=1067827068

Also nice job on avoiding the questions of whether you have the intake, whether you installed one, and what you actually had trouble with.

Anyone know how difficult is the install of a CSL airbox compared to a SMG > 6MT swap?

Mechanical bits: Way easier, not even comparable. Airbox is held on by 6 rubber boots / hose clamps. It pretty much is a case of pulling the old one off pushing the new one on.
Wiring: Easier for the CSL intake, but neither is super hard
Coding/Tuning: About the same difficulty for either.

So overall CSL intake is easier.

Positive VF means Negative for CSL?
