Cool 96 Acura Integra SE LS

Hello,
I just want to know how many horsepower does my car have after I put in a regular air-intake...?

Since the stock hp is 142..



Well...it's not really a normal air intake. I got the Type-R air intake filter and a really short metal pipe. So would it be more horsepower though???

Could you give me some tip on how to get some more horsepower out of my acura without spending any money??????

SE LS?

A normal air-intake would put it at 142hp supposing nothing else is robbing power...

What do you mean by Type-R intake filter? Something you got off ebay, or an actual OEM Honda (or Acura whatever) Intake? As for more horsepower w/o spending money, let me know when you find an answer.

Well...the named of the filter is called "Type-R Racing". No, I bought it for 100 dollar. It's from a store not from ebay.
