Default New Intake Setup/Rice Pipe Option

Finally installed my rice pipe today. The K&N Filter is on the way, the company I bought it from forgot to include it in my box they sent me, idiots. The rubber clamp that is on the TB is very loose, compared to just a regular clamp, so my pipe can move around if it needs to. Next month I might try removing the maf screen. My filter is touching the black box on the right, but not the front of the vehicle, got about half an inch of play there. I tried to get it away from the radiator as much as I could.

Pipe-Go down to your local autozone and pick up the intake pipe for 40$. For Honda and Acuras.
Filter-Right next to the pipe, around 20$. Ordered my K&N from Performancecenter, hopefully in this week!
IAT Harness-Intense Racing for 20$
Rubber clamp and metal straps-Any hardware store, got mine from TrueValue. Total of 5$

No, it will not fit correctly right out of the box. I had to cut a good inch or two from the top so it could fit. I drilled the hole right after the filter with a dremel. Used two rubber grommets to fit the IAT sensor snug against the pipe. One is inside the pipe and the other is on the outside.

My K&N was $60 shipped from www.4filters.com

Get an "iron pipe coupler" if you're looking for something stiffer. But too stiff makes it all flex.

K&N is usually the best because of the advanced technology put into the filter. And it lasts longer also. try performancecenter.com
