Basically just get a flexible rubber connector from a hardware store, then you will have to cut the end of the pipe off to accomodate the cone filter. As far as IAT placement, it varies among members. Just make sure the connector is flexible, dont worry, it will hold up with the best.

the TB is 3", the pipe is a little smaller, I used the coupler that came with the pipe and fit it inside a 3" one. I think Twister found a reducing one.

Just wanted to add... Advance Auto Parts has a few of these intakes but they had different models, they had one for Civics and one for Accords... I would assume that the Accord would take in more are and thus need a bigger tube... thus this would be the right one? I am kinda confused here, plus did yours come with a filter?

No, mine did not come with a filter.

I have seen the ones at AAP, make sure both pipes have the same angle bend. The ones at AAP are okay if you want a cheap filter. I opted for th K&N.

I want K&N also... that is why I didn't want to get the AAP one. I think it is an APC...


If someone could give me the PN for the one that they used I would greatly appreciate it!
