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
Honda Civic Concept at 2015 New York International Auto Show
Today Honda unveiled its ultra-sporty Civic Concept at the New York
International Auto Show as the brand prepares to launch its completely
reimagined 10th-Generation Civic models beginning this fall. With a sharper
focus on spirited performance and class-leading versatility, the new Civic
lineup will include Civic Sedan, Coupe and Si models along with the return
of the Civic hatchback, followed by the launch of a new Civic Type-R as the
performance flagship of the Civic lineup. The new Civic also will be the
first U.S. model to apply new VTEC® turbo engines from the company's Earth Dreams
Technology™ powertrain series.
"The new Civic will be, flat out, the most dynamic, the most
technologically advanced and the most refined and stylish Civic we've ever
made," said John Mendel, executive vice president, Automobile Division,
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "In every way, this will be an epic Civic."
The Civic Concept provides a tantalizing glimpse forward to the thrilling
design direction for the all-new 10th-generation Civic lineup launching in
the U.S. this fall. Featuring a longer wheelbase and lower, wider stance,
the new Civic emphasizes its aggressive personality and the engaging
experience it will provide behind the wheel. Proportionally it boasts a
longer hood, a shorter front overhang, a more set-back greenhouse and a
shorter rear deck, lending the Civic a more athletic and "in motion"
The low and wide proportions are underscored by its more aggressive
wheel-to-body relationship and pronounced fender arches. Its sporty and
expressive face is highlighted by bright new LED headlights flanking the
"Flying H" Honda grille which is supported by deeply sculpted lower air
"Charismatic, connected and athletic, our goal was to create a design that
is emotional and sporty yet with a sense of timelessness and simplicity,"
said Guy Melville-Brown, Exterior Design Leader of the Civic concept, Honda
R&D Americas, Inc. "In this we set out to create a vehicle that goes beyond
the superficial and embraces the very philosophy of what a true Civic
should be; it’s a real game changer."
The 10th-generation Civic is based on a compact platform that targets
benchmark levels of efficiency, dynamic performance, safety and
manufacturing productivity. Leveraging this new platform in conjunction
with new Earth Dreams Technology™ powertrains – including a new
1.5-liter VTEC® turbo engine with
direct injection, a short-shifting 6-speed manual transmission, and a new,
more sporty and efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT) – the
Civic will target class-leading fuel economy ratings and fun-to-drive
performance with near-luxury levels of cabin quietness and ride refinement.
The new Civic will also target class-leading levels of safety performance
and will offer the Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and
driver-assistive technologies, including Lane Departure Warning, Forward
Collision Warning, Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control and
Honda LaneWatch™, along with Honda's next-generation Advanced
Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure.
The new Civic marks the first time that global development of both the
sedan and coupe models is being led by a North American R&D team, with
design led by a team from Honda's Los Angeles design studio and development
centered in the company's Raymond, Ohio vehicle development center. The
North American version of the Civic Sedan will be produced in Greensburg,
Indiana, and in Alliston, Ontario. The Civic Coupe and Si models will also
be manufactured in Alliston. The VTEC turbo engine will be produced in Anna, Ohio with
engines also produced in Alliston. The CVT will be produced in Russells
Point, Ohio. Together, these four Honda plants have invested in new
equipment, processes and training to prepare for new Civic production,
which will use domestic and globally sourced parts. Production of the
five-door hatchback will take place at the company's Swindon, UK plant.
Honda is in the midst of a series of major product launches that began with
the freshened CR-V – 2015 Motor Trend Sport Utility of the Year – and
continues with the spring launch of the all-new 2016 Honda HR-V crossover
and the summer launch of the redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot SUV. This will be
followed by the new Civic release beginning this fall.
Honda Accord AEM V2 Cold Air Intake Installation
2002 HONDA ACCORD SPECIAL EDITION
2.3L, 4 Cylinder v-tec
Series F23A1 Engine
I'm no professional at this. I'm still very new and learning more about the
import tuner world.
I've never done an intake installation before and this one is my first.
Please don't over judge me too harshly.
The video was more for me on how to install it, but I thought I would share
this with everyone.
Enjoy the video!
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.
