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!
