I have installed Works carbon fiber open pot air intake, i find it very loud at higher acceleration.
Yes it does improve in performance but one may find it iiritating for the loudness.
Is this supposed to loud?

Open pods are suppose to be louder than stock intakes. That's the fun part about it. They give your engine a grunt.

But open Pod will sacrifice some low end power is that right? and improve on maybe mid and top end response?

alrite, will upload the pic tmr. i was told that the particular one can be fix into 1.3 and the lagi best myvi. I got it for rm 520, outcome? car drives smoother at higher speed. but getting louder at 3k rpm above, so mine will be hitting 3k rpm at 110-120km/h.

RM520 directly from works or car workshop/performance workshop? If the power improves at 3k rpm..I think it's still quite suitable for city drive...coz I usually switch gear at 2-3k rpm. But the noise might really be a prob...better insulation on the firewall maybe?

I'm actually thinking of either getting drop in knn...then I saw this cf filter and it really looks nice n sweeeeet

yes. it's true. the more you press the pedal, the louder suction sound you'll hear. it's due to low/unrestricted air sucked into the intake manifold.

RM 520 from a workshop with installation. Just tested on highway, 3k rpm is still ok at 120km/h, beyond 3k rpm the sound will be louder. i was thinking to have better insulation, but it will to much work where they might strip off the entire dashboard to do it. at first was looking into drop in filter, but after much research, drop-in doesnt make much different on performance.

missing one element: acceleration
acceleration depression = air(1) + fuel(1) = power(2);
if (acceleration depression (+5))
(air + fuel) + 5);
POWER +10
else if (acceleration depression (+1))
(air + fuel) + 1);
POWER +2;
else end if(got tree and bang);
