Your car sounds badass man! Keep up the nice work you've been doing! Any slow/normal accelerations coming? btw, was this in sport+ or what mode?

if you're gonna do this, would you mind shooting a w/ and w/o takeda intake vid? what it sounds like driving by and accelerating?

mang, i must be asking a lot from you, sorry then again, maybe i should become a car film director lol

I appreciate all the comments, thanks! Haha but yea I ended up removing the Takeda intake. I love the sound of the F-sport exhaust. But after a few days of driving around I realized how much quieter my car got, especially when I was putting the pedal to the floor. So I picked up a F-sport intake pipe for the 2is(fits fine on the 3is), keeping the oem air box since its the same component used in the F-sport intake for the 3is. Anyways, it feels and sounds much better now!

The grille surround looks pretty good.
How long did it take to install it? Did you have to take the bumper off too?

I guess you didn't take any vids of the exhaust sound when accelerating with the stock intake?

Thanks. It wasn't a easy job. I expected this install to go down in less than 30 mins... pop out from behind, pop in front. Boy, was I wrong!! Lol

It took me almost three hours to replace it. It did require whole front bumper removal and that was the easy part... I literally had to dissect the grill assembly just to get to the chrome piece.
