    Took me a few hours, but i never done this on a Civic before. I ddin't have to remove the bumper, but i took off/apart two splash guards and with my small hands I could get all up in the crevices.

    Pictures after I uh...go and do laundry at my parents to see how it runs! (it does run, I tested before i put everything abck together)

    How did you NOT have to take off your bumper? If it's a CAI, not a short ram, you would need to remove all of that stock plastic oem filter crap that is right behind the bumper. :unsure:

    By not putting on the mounting baracket, you know it voids a warranty (if applicable), right? If you aren't going to put on the mounting bracket, put on a APV.

    I never had to take my bumper off either when I installed my CAI a couple years ago.

    rev8K, so how does it feel/sound? :)

    it sounds mean as fuck, before I had to listen for VTEC, now...it just pronounces itself with authority.

    I drove my brothers 00 Si with his CAI on it back in 01, holy shit that thing was loud...i LOVED that, and now *I* have it. I should have done this 5 months ago.

    lmmfao!! I was thinking the same damn thing while I was standing there holding that bolt in my hand... hahaha

    The thing I hated most was they sent me instructions for a 96-98 EX,HX and had a picture of a D series in the instruction? LOL

    lol, the main cross front under body splash guard came off with 7 or 8 10mm bolts, and there was the wheel well splash guard that came off with one bolt, me being a small guy I could get my hands up in there.

    I did have to jack the car up to get the stock intake silencer box and tubes out from under the car. I shoulda taken some pics. Oh well. :D
