I did something similar to this setup on my old camaro. You will have to watch your filter because it gets very dirty, very quickly compared to stock.

just to re-comment about this, i don't understand why any of you would want to do this. stock intake pulls air from the fender, which is already much cooler than the engine bay. IF you connected a tube and ran that to the bumper opening, THEN this mod would be worth doing. that way, you would be able to force some cooler air into the intake. but the risk of doing that is hydrolocking during the rain. even though there is some vents in the intake, reducing your air intake volume from 100% capability to something like 5% i don't think is good for your engine. on another note, this mod would be great with the new ct-engineering intake heat shield and an intake duct running to the bumper opening. i will have my intake duct routed to the front bumper opening to the end of the tube in this thread, routing cooler air to the engine bay from the front of the car. i should have a video of what this looks like later when i'm finished. AND, i will be able to monitor the differences in the IAT because i have capabilities to measure it so I'll actually know for sure if that duct created cooler air or not.

I almost fell asleep reading all of this......I work on cars for a living and obviously you don't know much about your car.... Comptech makes an intake that is just like this only it has a metal filter housing... it stops in the same spot.... And you also don't know that our intake doesn't get air from fender it gets it from the engine bay the stock one comes up just in front of the battery....and my intake with the mods don't put the inlet in the engine bay.....its in front of the fenderwell.......

all aftermarket CAI's put the filter in same spot.....

if you work on cars for a living, you may consider another job because what you are talking about has nothing to do with the mechanic part of an automobile, rather the engineering design. and the stock intake does take air from the fender. if you think otherwise, you are either retarded or blind. your argument of saying comptech has an intake similar to this gives no justification to your part. ct-engineering just came out with an intake for our car that utilizes stock tubing except the top and bottom portion of the filter housing. it makes no sense to connect the bottom part of the intake tube to the rest of the intake because it is not generating any vacuum to suck air from the fender. i am finished arguing with you because you think i know nothing about cars.

the intake from Comptech that you refer to is the High flow intake I am talking about the ICE BOX intake.....


I never said you knew nothing about cars...You just need to get your facts straight....plus there is no need for the name calling....

Like in the mugen intake it stops in the exact spot as my setup. Look in supplied pick its all the same parts but some are metal. so they don't know how to design intakes???


Mugen setup..... piece circled is the same as what I did they removed the box and where they removed it is where the air come in like mine......
[IMG]http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e122/****yboy13/272.jpg[/IMG]

the next 3 pictures are the same piece as the one circled in the mugen....thiers is a little longer thats why i added the end piece from where the stock one sits to extend it.....you also don't know that the bottom of the car has openings for air to come in thats cool fresh air just pouring right in.... if you look in my thread you will see final shots of it inside car some of them are from underneath the car...






Oh and this guy is an engineer and he likes my mod maybe you can talk to him about my setup since you think its garbage along with any aftermarket CAI that puts the air filter right in the same location behind the fog light........

Yes, it is possible on an R18. I did basically the same thing on my EX. The resonator tubing is different, but it's the same idea. For the DX/LX/EX you will have to take the battery out to remove the down tube bracket. There are two bolts that sit right under the battery tray. Also, the R18 has a snorkel tube that sits to the right of the battery. You will have to twist about 1/4 turn and pull to get it off. I hacked the resonator box off right at the base of the tube and reattached the tubing to the down tube. It puts the opening just in front of the fender well. With a K&N drop-in filter, there is a nice boost in pickup and a subtle increase in sound at mid-to-full throttle. I would imagine it will sound a bit louder with an aftermarket exhaust. The stock exhaust is way too tame sounding. No clue how much power gain it will give you. Probably 3-5hp for the K&N and resonator removal together.

For all of those who are scared to cut the tubing, you can buy a complete replacement resonator box for less than $30 from hondaautomotiveparts.com. That's a whole lot cheaper than getting a CAI and changing your mind later.

PS- I'm a big fan of DIY stuff (and I am an engineer). Keep up the good work fiji06si13.
this guy also dyno'd my setup i have every mod he has including throttle body bypass and K&N drop in....

I took it a step further and transformed the resonator into a scoop. It feels incredible during normal driving and a bit more anxious under aggressive acceleration. There's no fog hole so the air is ultra clean... K&N drop is also installed. I'll be running this with a shorty header by next week. Mugen cat-back of course. OEM fitment is great too... Sorry for the crap photos...
