Will an Intake really give more HP or just a nice sound?

I was thinking of buying an Injen Intake, I hear it might give 2-3 HP and a cool sound, Im ok with that honestly, will I notice an actual difference in the way the car drives, power?

I believe Injen claims like a 10HP increase with their CAI.

I have sounds OK. I've had it for 6+ guess I'd have to drive a stock TSX at this point to give a comparison.

An intake such as Injen does three things:
  • Allows more noise out of the engine
  • Allows for a few more ponies up near redline at wide open throttle (below that, not much of anything)
  • Allows more dirt into the engine
