A longer pipe gives the air more of a chance to become laminar, and gets the filter closer to the source of cold air (behind the headlight). The laminar flow is more important for those running without MAF screens, or the L27/L36 cars.

Well the filter is in the exact same spot as it used to be with the longer pipe and might even be an inch or two further away. Thing is the pipe extended into the filter so I believe that was making the airflow a bit weird and after the cut things are perfect. I just cleaned the intake right before I installed it and made sure not to get any finger prints or anything else on it but today when I popped the hood I noticed water spots. It did just rain heavily yesterday but I dont see how water spots could have gotten on it with the hood closed the hole time.

Lookin good Jason! Looks close to Ryan'* setup. That helped him sooo much with a good box around it. Other then the added performance and great sound, the gas milage goes up considribly. I think Ryan has gotten as hi as 37 MPG!! Get that box done and you should be all good!

I've checked with AutoZone and they dont have any of the civic pipes.

Would any of these work for the intake pipe???

This one sounds like the gaudy packaging previously talked about...

Not a bad price. I think it goes for 40$ in the store.
