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 96 Civic
This Cold Air Intake was designed for another civic, so I modified the
tubes and installed a K&N filter. I can definitely feel a difference in
throttle response in the higher end of the power band especially. I'm a
fairly conservative driver for the most part, and after about a week I
noticed about 2 MPG increase, as long as I keep off the pedal. -Not bad for
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.
