Man that thing sounds beautiful. Could you tell me what model number part it is or a link to where I can buy it. Also, how hard was it to install? I think I may have to pick one of those up.

Sounds awesome man. I take it that is the K&N RX-4750?

Man I wish I could get that on there. In my '89 the load leveling compressor is right in the way, I'm trying to think of a way to get around it...

yeah, RX4750. The pipe is for a 92+civic, $44 at autozone or $15 on ebay. I just followed BonnemeMN'* thread. A heat shield shouldn't be too hard, just screw it to the rubber base of the filter. I'm probably not going to bother with a heat shield. Would it give me power i can feel? I doubt it. And it would probably mask some of that glorious sound.

RedRocket: Follow BonnemeMN'* thread about intakes in the performance forum. All the answers are there, somewhere. It was very easy to install once i rounded up the parts. All i had to do was rip out the washer bottle, cut a few inches off each end of the pipe with a hacksaw, and drill out the hole in the filter for the IAT sensor. That'* all there is to it.

When the engine flexes, it pulls the pipe towards the back so i has plenty of room to clear that wire loom and hood sensor.
