So I am looking to get a Cold air intake for my E. I am looking at the Injen, AEM and K & N systems. What is the best one to use with the Element? DO you notice a gain in gas mileage? Thanks

Injen for sure!

I have the Injen CAI, too, along with their exhaust. Sounds real mean when you step on the gas! Not sure 'bout the mileage, though! My foot has gotten a little "heavy" since I got the CAI!

Ditto!!! I do still get decent MPS but because of the little boast of HP and sound I tend to step on it a bit.

The injen for 07 up should fit your 09'. The CAI does wrap around the battery, through the resonator hole in the body and end up under the headlight.

I ment all the way around the battery the way the stock unit goes then across in frount of the battery back towards the raideateor :shock: then turn forward & go in front of the raidator behind the H on the grill. no not the hot on your bbq the honda logo on youer E.or even past that for more ram tuning effect

I would agree the Injen makes a nice like CIA ( i have had CIA and SR... i prefer an SR over a CIA... CIA teed to reach max pwr at high RPMs and SR teed to reach max pwr at lower RMPs.

I have rebuilt 270, 300, 350z for years... and prefer the short ram (SR).

I have had all kinds of branks, Injen, F5, K&N, AEM, and Takeda.

For the money the AEM SR intake is the best...



for tuned exhaust i would go with Injen.

(The other con to CIA is cleaning and removing the filter....90% of the time its near the wheel or lower front bumper which can be a pain in the butt)
