Question type: Car Customization

I installed a cold air intake and while I gained significant
high rpm power I lost some low end power. What is the
best way to regain the low end power. Is it increase back
pressure? If so what is the best/cheapest way?

That is one of the draw backs of cold air systems, they smooth out the air flow so there is less turbulence going through the throttle body to aide in fuel air mixing. It is not a back pressure problem in the exhaust or you would have lost top end rpm's. You might be able to get some of it back buy installing a header and a computer reprogrammer like a bully dog or similar.

Cheapest way is to remove the cold air intake. Additional parts and a tuner will be costly.

Bob, funny and helpful all at once. Perhaps you should try a comedy forum instead.

Just trying to honestly answer your question. Trade the Honda for a Mustang GT and problem will be solved.

If rwd was an option in Vermont I would

You could put smaller tires on just the front, that would give you more out of the hole power but it will reduce the top end speed. RWD in Vermont is still there, they were RWD vehicles long before there were front wheel drives vehicles.
