How to Install a Short Ram Intake for 96-00 Civic HX/EX/SI
This is a step by step installation instruction video for a short ram intake on a 96-00 Honda Civic HX/EX/SI. The car used in the video is a 2000 Honda Civic HX (D16Y5) and models may vary slightly. The intake being installed is an AEM short ram intake with a dryflow filter. There are captions in the video to help with the instructions, and I have some background music to make it a little more interesting. I hope this helps all of you people out there who need a detailed step by step in video format. I ran into one issue and explained my solution during the install, probably a common issue with intake replacements in these model Civics. If you have questions or comments, please leave below, I will try to answer any questions that I can. I think this video is very thorough and any amateur modder should be able to install their intake without any issues. I am not sure where all of the bolts are to remove the stock resonator, just in case that question gets asked. This intake fit without needing the removal of the resonator, and I'm sure you could google and find a forum where someone had this question answered. The pcv breather/vacuum hose I purchased is a 3/8" vacuum hose, $2.29 per foot = cheap, in case your intake did not come with a new hose. Thanks for watching, and mod on!
Cold Air Intake vs Short Ram Intake - Explained
What's the difference between a cold air intake and a short ram air intake? What are the benefits of one over the other? Cold air intakes attempt to relocate the engine air filter outside of the engine compartment, thus pulling in cooler air and allowing for more power. Short ram air intakes are designed to have a minimal impact on air-flow restriction, and are lighter. Which is better? I'll have to put them in my Integra to find out!

How to Customize a Universal Cold Air Intake Filter System - Pep Boys
Spectre Performance demonstrates in this video how to customize a universal cold air intake kit using parts you can find at your local neighborhood Pep Boys. Using universal parts you can simply assemble them in any fashion to create the look you want to make. First we take off the existing air cleaner and install a single 4 inch plenum. Lay the plenum where your air filter was and put it in any direction you like. Screw on the plenum with the existing air filter nut or a custom nut of your choice. You will need couplers that will connect the different intake tubes together that can be turned to mold within your engine compartment. Simply slide on the coupler to the plenum and fit accordingly. Secure the clamp on the coupler to the ridge inside and then you can add additional tubing for the length you desire. Remember not to tighten the clamps too hard, because you may need to move your tubing around until you create a final fit. Rotate and adjust as needed. Attach your air filter to the end of the tubing. You can find inserts that go into the filter to accommodate a 3 or 3.5 inch tube. Once you have the final placement in place, be sure then to go back and tighten all of the clamps to hold the filter system securely in place. The advantages to having a custom air intake filter system located in the front of your engine is that you can take advantage of the air stream and receive colder air going into the intake system instead of the hot air that your standard filter was providing. Customizing your cold air intake system is pretty simple once you know a few simple tricks. Not only will your new custom air intake system look great, but it will increase your engine's overall performance.
