    I still use OEM-swap Fram brand filters for everything, since we always seem to have them on hand in Dad's shop. If you'd like a more permanent filter, K&N makes a set for the 9th gen Civic that's pretty nice.

    Pros For K&N:
    -Permanent, just blow them out with compressed air when they get dirty.
    -Better airflow for performance

    Cons for K&N:
    - More airflow also means more dirt in the engine over time.

    Pros for Fram:
    -OEM Swap-in
    -Better Filtration than K&N

    Cons for Fram:
    -Not Permanent
    -Less Airflow


    Cabin Filter #1: Fram CF10134 for Civic 2.4L Si
    Cabin Filter #2: K&N VF2001 for Civic 2.4L Si

    Air/Intake Filter #1: Fram CA10359 for Civic 2.4L Si
    Air/Intake Filter #2: K&N 33-2473 for Civic 2.4L Si

    I'm 90% sure these are the right part numbers-- but please double check them before you pick them up to make sure.

    Hope this helps!

    @sunofwolf For a surprisingly civil answer, you have my respect. Good day, sir.

    I like using the K&N cabin filter and drop in air filter. Another thing to add is be careful on buying oiled filters as they pollute the MAF and will require constant cleaning.

    What kind of vibration and where? You could have a leaf in the fan.

    Is the filter loose in the frame? Maybe the wrong filter?

    Did you look in the fan to see if it had debris in it?
