So does anyone know if a good cold air intake has been produced yet for the 9th gen? I'm hoping for a good K&N, also I know those automatic car washes are bad for them, is there anyway around that short of pull out your CAI?

As much as I've looked into it, I don't think an SRI is right for my car, thanks though, I think I'll just have to avoid those automatic washes

I don't think the issue is the filter as you can pretty much attach almost any filter. I think the issue is the bends on the piping to make it fit.

I had a feeling that 8th gen intake systems wouldn't be compatible with the 9th gen. We just have to wait until aftermarket companies start releasing parts for the 9th gen.

How long did that take with the 8th gen? I'm just wondering how long it will be until we start seeing aftermarket parts. I guess it's not cost effective for them to start producing them already when the Si isn't even out yet.

I say give it a few months. Enjoy your Civic in stock form for now, at least until the mod party starts. :biggrin:

What kind of 8th gen cai did you try? Also where are the spots on the intake that didn't work? elbow? the bends on the piping?

yeah i agree with JDM, it will be a few months minimum......remember they came out a month ago and they are stil hard to come by. which means these companies are having just as hard of a time getting their hands on these for the R&D to produce parts. it will be a few months at least....

Oh yeah, and remember, even if the the sri or cai are out, it may even take alot longer for Injen and AEM due to trying to get them CARB Approved.

I know from experience. When I bought my GE8 (2009 Honda Fit Sport) back in October '08, it took about 6 months for the aftermarket to start testing and releasing parts. I assume that it'll be the same for the 9th gen Civic.

Well theoretically you could do anything lol not everyone has the means or the time to do that though, let alone produce a product that will be as efficient as one from an actual manufacturer
