    After installing CAI. I have a 95 accord ex

    Did you guys have to cut the plastic cover ( covers the lower side )at the wheel wells or cut a hole in the bumper To increase air to the intake?

    To me it looks like it is all covered up from the fresh air.

    The instuction don't say anything about it.

    Anybody give some info on this.

    Thanks,

    whoa, no, you don't really need to hack anything, i highly doubt that chamber where your air filter is would be anywhere near air tight...

    have you noticed any problems?
    the stock plastic keeps the mud and water from fucking with your intake

    Yes, you need not cut anything. Especially holes in the bumper. you'll just look plain stupid then.

    Yea, I don't think it is air tight. Ha Ha.

    I just don't have one of those aftermarket bumpers with the grills in it.

    It's stock bumper.

    I don't have a problem with my injen CAI.

    I just though you had to do something to get it to take in more air.

    More air, more power? Just my thinking. I don't know.


    Thanks for the replies.
