if you put in a performance air filter not the stock replacement then it breathes much better and their is a marginal increase in pickup.top speed pretty much remains the same. also you will have a good induction sound at high rpm'sd and psychologically it will feel faster.
the bets part about it is the fuel economy will improve.
a good air filter and headers are the best combination for a good street car. since the intake and exhaust are much more free flow. air passage is faster.

KIMI RAIKONEN
ICEMAN
its meant for people with a cool head on the track
not those who bang their steering when they loose

I miss MIKA HAKINEN
cause he was the only guy who pushed MICHEAL to the limit
MICHAEL is too good for the current grid

well what happened was i too was thinkin which to buy vtec or bvaleno and everyone saidd that baleno has no scope no mods are good enough..the usual.
kinda took it as a challenge to show the honda fanatics a lesson ONLY with regards to the vtec.
I myself am a die hard fan of the DOHC VTEC type R.

this was just to prove that a baleno is NOT Slow.
