Nice! Does that route under the fender (infront of the driverside wheel)?
It sits perfectly right in front of the drivers side front wheel well, and literally if you pulled out your driver side fog light the filter is right there behind it. It has the bends but even the piping doesn't heat up easily with its placement. It's really well protected between some plastics too. Install is cake!
**added attachment showing the front wheel well pulled back. Sorry, I dunno why it flipped sideways
Very nice. I'm pretty surprised that Injen didn't do the same design. Their filter just sits right under the battery which is still enclosed with the engine inside the engine bay.
It was really a shot in the dark for me to use this intake. I studied how this was installed as the ILX and Civic have a little bit of a difference in the engine bay. The Injen doesn't even fit our cars! I am hoping to switch to the Skunk2 3.5" when it comes out. If it ends up being like the 8th Gen the battery location stays convenient vs a Rick Spec'd.
Exaclty. I did have the Rick Spec'd, but I didn't like the placement of the battery and how the coolant reservoir sat on top of it.
On a DD it's hard to justify those types of compromises. In my opinion at least :\
Like what do you do if your car is in a really inconvenient position and you need a jump.. Lol. Have super long jumper cables I suppose?
My battery was original and six years old. It kept dying almost once every week during winter when I had the Rick Spec'd installed. It wasn't fun trying to jump the car with a portable battery jumper with short cables. Lol.
updated the listing - thank you
so is the AEM the best performing intake on the stock im?
I've been running a AFe Takeda for about 8 months, with the stock manifold, RBC and Supercharged. I'll tell you right now that it can run over 20 degrees over ambient. I just ordered the AEM intake and I'll let you know what the logs show. It's very affordable and will open some space for my catch can, water pump and fill tank for my aftercooler setup. This should hold me over until Skunk2 releases something.
It consistently pulls 1-7 over ambient. A slight bit hotter when sitting but it cools right back down
I wanted to clarify as I looked over some of my datalogs it can range higher but goes as low as ambient temps.. It's a good intake.
webby I don't have the info but AEM makes an intake for the 1.8L models as well if you wanna add it
Looking forward to it. Anything cold would help this blower.
For money k&n drop in sounds nice till 3.5 come out.. Not sure others are worth money for the gain..
Just my opinion
Another great line up.
There already is a 3.5" CAI out.
**sorry I didn't realize it wasn't on the list**
This does NOT require RBC intake manifold.
what about PRL's 3.5 CAI ?

Looks like RBC only.
yup, but so is the one from rs tuning
just thought it should be included is all
The PRL is pretty much the same as the 4130 intake.
