Any C.A.I. is a waste of money, that is unless you're really only interested in gaining the 'rush' of intake air sound, then it depends upon how much you are willing to spend. If you have the time to remove the baffles from the intake resonator, you can produce the same (or similar) effect for zero $

Different muffler designs produce their own peculiar sound, remember though, the engine in your Accord was engineered to run properly with a particular back pressure

Hi, thanks for responding, is there any tips u can give me to take those baffles from the intake at all? And as far as the same effects go, does it give a better engine sound? So if I got a different muffler I'd need to make sure the new one doesn't hold up pressure

Simply trace the air intake to find the resonator located within the lower left front fender in front of the wheel-well and behind the bumper. It's not easy to get to, and often requires removing the bumper and left front wheel, once discovered, the cover can be detached allowing access to the baffles. Videos can be found online showing the process.

The resonator is designed to quiet the sound of intake air, in the old days of carburetors, one could simply remove the filter housing.

Can also do an online search for performance mufflers that are designed for your '06 V6
