I ran a 2015 Honda Accord 3.5L (6 speed auto trans) ( 3,300 miles on car) on the chassis dyno before and after install.
Before run was not ideal, but I duplicated it for gain results.
Pros: gained around 15 Hp & 14 Tq. Fitment. It has increased suction noise, under acceleration, that I wanted from it.
Cons: it sounds like shit because of the resonance. The hardware quality is lacking.
I had a AEM cold air intake on my Acura 3.2CL years ago, that sounded great.

Overall max results with this CAI installed:
Max Power at the wheels: 255.20
Max Torque at the wheels: 237.02
4 star rating, because it sounds like ...
