    I have a B18C1 in a 1991 Civic DX 4 door sedan, 1.5 liter. The intake I have from my friends GSR does not fit because the battery has been moved to fit into my civic. Where can I get a custom intake for this particular swap? Thanks.

    Make it fit... it's just piping and a filter.

    home depot is you're friend. They have dryer hose if you wanna be REAL cheap about it or you can use the normal PVC pipes with some angles to make it perfect.

    what is the stock piping made out of...plastic :p

    Seany's way is probably better, but mine is cheaper. I think I did it on my old hatch before the turbo.

    Don't Use PVC , Buy a legnth of U-Bend almuinized steel and cut it to fit.
    I built an intake with a K&N filter for about $60, and $40 of the cost was for the K&N filter.

    Any exhaust shop will bend you a piece of scrap piping if your nice to them, thats what my friend did on his hatch. Just figure out how long, where the bend is, and call around and see if anyone has scrap they'd be willing to put a bend in real quick. Generally shops farther away from cities will be more willing to do this. Then like everyone else said, couplers and an K&N
