I work with this guy who thinks his Neon is the fastest thing in town. So I'm gonna school this asshat next time I hear him talking it up. I wanted to give myself every possible advantage... so I bought this CAI system from Checker. Keep in mind, it is designed for a 96-99 Civic. Here's how it looks:


and another view



It doesn't fit as it was designed to, it isn't straight inside it's rubber thingy (
) but it is secure.


I am sure that if we get into racing our cars... I'll kick his a**!

But my car sounds mean as hell now!

I even got a few ppl to turn their heads when I punched it to WOT.

The battery does move around... but it was more like picking it up then anything... the negative terminal was a b**** to get like that... there isn't much slack in the wiring and I had to reroute some of it. but both the tubing and the battery aren't goin anywhere unless I hit a MAJOR pothole or something.

I bought a ractive unit for the Civic on Ebay thinking I would modify it and put it on my wifes Rodeogot it for $7.23 . It fit right on and increased the performance un believably since the Rodeo had about two square inches of openig and was against the fender with no hole in the fender shipping was another $7.00. When it is idling it sounds like every belt and bearing is about to explode but as soon as you throttle it gets a lot quieter. Mine was yellow with a red filter I think that combo makes more power technically speaking

ps I would post a pic but superford doesn't seem to know who I am.

OK I'm Confused, why do you call it a CAI Cold Air Intake when it is still sucking Hot Air from under the Hood?? why not run a hose to down under the bumper to get good outside air ?? Is the air under the hood actually cooler than if it comes from inside the fender ?

I would guesstimate it being about two feet after the bend, the tubing is 3 inches. I bought it at a a local auto parts store (Checker, back east I think they're Advantage). BTW it sounds REALLY good!
