    k, bought the intake for $40 shipped on ebay last week and got it today.

    well, it doesn't say dc sports on it, just a kinda crappy DC vinyl logo.

    is there any chance dc made intakes in this style before the Direct Air Charger series?

    if it's not real, no big deal. it's still a comparitive price with the other cheap intakes on ebay, but this one came with a very nice filter.

    and it does it's job by making the engine sound better. the butt dyno says i gained .5 hp.

    lol who cares. It's a pipe. It could be DC sports or Home Depot brand. Really doesn't make any difference.

    when i had my 97 Civic, i put a DC Sports DAC intake on it. on the tube, there was a raised rectangle section that said DC Sports and in red letters below it, it said DAC. alos mine was chrome and yours looks like a flat silver. that intake looks like an off-brand but if it does the job and you are content with how it performs, then :thumbsup:

    **edit**

    heres what a DC Sports DAC intake looks like it:

    I don't think the point of a DAC, CAI, SRI, etc. is to make the car sound better, ricer. :lol:

    But seriously...I don't think it's a DC Sports, mainly because you paid 40 bucks for it on ebay. It does the same thing as any SRI--nothing at all. SRI is the biggest waste of space in your engine bay ever.
