Upgrade/apply desires parts now so u don’t have to pull it apart or retune it later.
Glad to see everything made it safely. It should work with your current intake. The kit is designed to connect just like stock. I had both the k&n short ram and aem cai, both fit fine even with the zdx spacer.
As for cooling I've always read you need a cooler for anything smaller than the 3.6". Is the car gonna blow up instantly without it? No but I would be concerned about longevity.
Also the tune would have to pull a lot of timing to be safe without a cooler. Probably wouldnt gain much power over the 3.6"

If you can find a way to swing cooling I would recommend it. Obviously I don’t have the ct setup on my 9th but from my experience with blowers on my other civic they don’t dissipate heat well. Once it gets heat soaked it will stay that way even with cool intake charge running through it and staying out of boost.
