  1. Cold Air Intake and Hydrolock Concerns

    Bolt-Ons and All-Motor
    So I've been looking into possibly getting a Skunk2 CAI for my 2013 Si, trying to put together a list of mods to purchase and then get tuned. However, I have read lots of things about sucking up water in the CAI and hydrolocking the engine. Via the search, I found these threads: Well...
  2. R18 dyno

    ECU Tuning
    Hey guys, I have installed a P2R TBS, Injen CAI, and Takeda axleback exhaust on my 2012 r18 MT. Last thing I want to do is get a hondata flash pro and do a dyno tune, how much will this run me, and what numbers should I expect to get? Was looking into getting headers before the tune, but a lot...
  3. 2014 Civic R18 Flatspot/Hesitation On Deceleration

    ECU Tuning
    Hello, I'm new to the forum here. I browse lots but haven't posted. Anyway, I'm having trouble with my 2014 Civic LX. I've got an injen intake and throttle body spacer. They have been on the car for about 30,000kms. Recently I've been having a CEL coming and going for code P0172 Bank 1 too...
  4. Hybrid Racing CAI install notes

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    I'd like to start by saying a couple of things. First of all, this is not a full DIY; this is just a list of things that I ran into while installing this intake and some suggestions to get around these problems. Secondly, this intake is made for the 8th generation civic si so i would recommend...
  5. Installed K&N Typhoon in my '12 Si

    Si Only
    please excuse the shitty wire job for the amp. not my doing and will zip tie it soon. Was a pretty easy install, however, getting the connection from the stock part of the intake onto the typhoon was a bitch. My suggestion for anybody doing install is to remove battery and part of the stock...
  6. New Version of Injen Cold Air Intake

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    Injen just released a new version of their cold air intake for the 2012+ Civic Si. They call it the "True Cold Air" verison, but in reality the old one was still a cold air intake. This one just reaches down a little further, and the main design change is that it now includes a battery...
  7. 2014 Injen Cold Air Intake

    Hey guys im wondering if the Cold Air Intake system works with our 2014s? Specifically talking about R18s (Lx Manual). I Should assume they are exactly the same tech- On paper the only thing that looks different is the 2014 sedan has +3hp then the 2013 sedan. - However i have read our ECUs can...
  8. HPS silicon intake tube

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    I sent hps an email to ask about eta for a silicon intake for the 9th gen si and was informed they are in the R&D stage, have a prototype out but they need some one nearby to let them try it out before they can release...I'm 3k miles away so I'm no use..but just wanted to spread the word
  9. Installing Injen CAI

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    So I finally decided to get the Injen Cold Air Intake for my 2012 Civic Si. I saw online that injen had several install guides published for other vehicles/models...but I could not find any information on this one. Does anyone know if that information is available or...more importantly...if...

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    Just ordered FlashPro and the Ultimate eTune package from vittuned.com. Hi everyone, Just got my intake installed this morning. I took some pictures and thought I'd share them. The intake looks great on the '13 Sedan with the chrome, it blends well. As for a performance gain, you can...
  11. How to Keep Injen Cai Cool

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    Well as we all know the Injen sucks hot air from the radiator. Got my car tuned Monday and my IAT's rose high about 108 F with an ambient of 70 F. On the way home (on the freeway) I datalogged and they still stood about 20 to 25 degrees over ambient in traffic they got even higher. Today I was...

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    I've received the very 1st PRL CAI kit! Just waiting on a couple more pieces before the install Friday. I'll keep you guys posted. Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App
  13. What next after AEM CAI?

    Intakes and Spacers
    Installed my AEM cai yesterday on my EX coupe and I must say I'm impressed. No major gains but the sound and the better throttle response make it seem a little meaner than it was. I'm wanting to add catback and header, can I do the header before the exhaust? I've heard an aftermarket header...
  14. RBC Intake Manifold + Injen CAI

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    Should I be using something else other than the stock intake tube? or will this be ok?
  15. Denial from Honda to fix clutch b/c of aftermarket CAI and Exhaust link to case plz

    Drivetrain Problems
    Basically I went to Honda a few months ago, other members had the same issue and they helped them. When I am in first or Reverse, it makes a high pitched noise when I let off, sometimes it happens alot in one day, and sometimes it doesn't happen when I need the tech to see what I am talking...

  17. Injen CAI and RBC Manifold - Distance Between?

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    I have the complete PRL RBC Manifold Intake Kit w/ZDX TB on order and I am asking if anyone knows the compatibility between Injen CAI and the new setup. I am getting the impression that I may need to bridge a gap between the two. Anyone know what it is? I am prepared to order from Intakes.com if...
  18. Injen CAI Filter & Hydrasheild ?'s

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    I was just wondering if we could prolong our Dry filters with some light air and a brush? Common sense tells me yes, but I am very new to anything technical about cars. I have learned more about cars since joining this forum a year ago then all my years combined. I hope this isn't too silly of a...
  19. Rbc Cai Soultion 8th Gen AEM Cai into 9th Gen Si

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    I've been thinking of a way to get around using the factory flex intake hose with the Injen "pretzel" and i figured id try a true CAI from an 8th since im running an 8th intake. it was quite a bit more work than installing the Injen but it was really worth it. my car has a lot mot=re power now...
  20. Injen CAI extension made from stock intake

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    Hey all, i don't know if you'd be interested in this mod, but i found it works great. As some of you have been saying, the Injen intake pulls in hot are from behind the radiator fans, so I've been looking for an extension or something to angle it out of the way. After looking on different...
