ermm..isn't that why people upgrade to a cold air cone intake?
Even the Dinan one that is located way lower still hisses...

I've been under the impression the hissing occurs anyways, the stock airbox is sealed/soundproofed enough to hide it better.

I've been modding cars since i had my '92 Accord and I know that all intakes make a hissing noise due to the higher airflow.

As far as noise, are you used to hearing 4 cylinder civic engines with intakes b/c those get much improvement with a deaper growl. You won't get that with a 6 cyl engine...

Once again do a search..nothing wrong with the hissing noice..it's not that noticable and you will get used to it.
It is the best mod you can do for your whip...just get it..

And agreed.

I recommend the Dinan Al CAI. $350 is definitely worth it.
