Now I am pleased with this mod and its cost. Im a guy that likes more for less. This DIY CAI falls under that category. Now if I could have spent another $180 and picked up a T2, I still woulda gone this route. Maybe the T2 woulda netted another 1.062 hp and maybe the pipe looks shinier than mine but until i see a dyno graph with the T2 makin the DIY look silly, this is the recommended route for those of us who would rather spend that $180 elsewhere. :thumbup:
*92-00 Civic Intake pipe from Autozone $40
*K&N CAI Element from Summitracing.com $35+shipping
Click on this part number to go to the filter I used:KNN-RU-2430
*nice 3" pipe coupler from a local hardware store $4
*me relocating my charcoal canister to my storage cabinet FREE
This is the K&N next to my cheeseball autozone filter
This is the final version of the finished product
Here is was after 7 months, update on the Civic intake. Some have said that the pipe will rust quickly on the inside while maintaining its shiny appearance on the outside. So I pulled the intake off after all those months and after driving in the salt and snow.
Still looks good to me.
