Dont know if this is a repost but I figured I share the knowledge. Reading thru my latest super Street magazine, they had an article on the 09 Si sedan. It was on DC Sports. They had a Dc sport race header and exhaust which we all know about. I noticed in the engine bay a dc sports intake. I searched and found this. I figured I show everyone. Just another option for under 200.00dollars. Short ram similar to injen or aem but slightly cocked. Looks to angle the filter downwards.

AEM owns DC
Yes i think this was true a couple years ago. But now i think there seperate compaines. Its different than my aem as the aem is str8 filter position and the dc cocks downward. And to the guy that said the parts look better than what we seen. I totally agree, the header and exhaust looked fresh and like good quality.

^I think you're right. I know they use to be the same but I just went to their sites and they appear to be seperate. Both have different headquarters addresses. Interesting.

Saw this in Super Street and was wondering about it. They claimed 44 hp with their intake, race header, exhaust, Hondata intake manifold gasket and flashpro. Pretty impressive numbers

The claim for the DCSports Short RAM:

"DC Sport Air Intake Systems provide the best of both worlds in heat protection and improved breathability. Every kit includes an air filter that requires no oil, therefore no chance in contaminating the mass air flow sensor which can result in loss of power and higher fuel consumption"

Has anyone been able to verify if/how they are providing heat protection for their short RAM?

Hi guys,

I'm disabled but I can still drive an automatic. I just got a 2008 honda civic ex sedan yesterday and my dad installed my dc sports intake just as the youtube install videos suggested. The problem is that I now have the engine check light on. Do you guys what could be the fix for this? Perhaps a faulty connection in the install? Any suggestions?

Can you have the code scanned? That would be helpful. It may be a MAF code. perhaps the MAF got damaged or the readings are off.
