|rcmdesign||I've found a guy that will sell me just the air intake without piping for $40. Sound good?|

Well I know there's a clear path from my intake tubing now right to in front of the radiator. There should only be two bends to get there. Plus with the new front bumper on the aggressive body kit there should be more clearance, just mounting it will be the trick. I seriously think I will try it this summer. Tons of pictures will be taken of course...
What do you guys think will be the effect of blocking the radiator down there? Will I have to compromise somehow to get more air to the radiator so my engine doesn't overheat?

|citronxbeige||i talked about that thing with eric after i saw it on hp tv on a civic. it seems pretty cool but it would be pretty tough with clearance and fitment. also the one i saw had a removeable plexiglass shield that you pop off when u want to drive hard and leave on to protect from debris. seems pretty neat, but a lot of custom bends would probably be necessary. if you go through with it let me know how it went...|

All I can say is wrap the piping going up so you don't get heat soak off the radiator and surrounding bits and pieces. Let us know how it turns out and take lots of pictures.
On a side note did you ever get your cabin neon tubes installed????

|rcmdesign||If I wanted to get a turbo I would. Having a front mount air intake will better the air flow into my car, rather than having a cone filter right smack behind the headlight. And I never heard of something being rice to help in engine performance. My def. of rice is something that doesn't serve a purpose.|

*cough* rice *cough*...
I dunno if i am to sold on that ait intake!..
if you want a turbo that bad.....
get one. lol

Thats the funniest thing I have seen
people might get it confused with the sound of drivig through a puddle.
The best is when a motorcyle comes towards me and i let the boost fly, ill look in the mirror and hell be checking down at his tires like he got a flat....LOL

Looks like a pretty potential idea, aesthetically. Although it appears to look like it's sucking in colder air ....you just added about 2 feet of pipe to get back into the throttle body...but the ram air affect may-be worth a try...., but seems like you're already acomplishing that in the stock location already...
You could always just spend the dollars on getting a real turbo setup...or porting the head for bigger valves, adding a cam, headers, larger throttle body, and exhaust...
"Get er done" then get er dyno'd

But you get that cool look in the front grill. There is a Civic in my parking garage that has one installed and it looks decent. But If you do that and you want to confuse people if its a turbo or not then you have to get this.

|DeLorean||well I don't really see the benifite of this unit Vs a standard cone air filter with a cold air intake. I guess if it's like $40-60 it's a neat unit but I would not pay too much for it, as it's only going to provide a marginal power increase if any at all...|
|02-10-2005 12:20 PM|
Looks interesting to me. I would like to see it on your car so we can get a final idea of what it would look like!!
You know you could just make it easier and get a turbo car and then you wouldnt need the intake system.

Front Mount Intercooler Style Air Intake for N/A
Ok for all us N/A guys. I had an idea which I think will boost some HP. An intake that looks like an intercooler to the un-trained eye, but is really an intake system. There is tons of ebay right now just search for air intake intercooler. Here is one now: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=38634 I figure once I get the body kit I might use this since there will be a spot for all the turbo guys to have intercoolers, why not use it to benefit an N/A.
What does everyone think?
