As a lot of your know i ordered a AEM SRI from a 06+ civic Si intake which fit my Element 07... turned out good, attached before and after photos. I did notice a little more pick up and go... and at higher RPM's it sounds a lot deeper than it did.... overall awesome little mod for this car... took roughly an hour to remove and install new intake. For the guys that are not grease monkeys.... i have a DIY video on youtube.

That is exactly how I first positioned the k&n one I had then I turned it to sit behind the battery. Yours looks great on there, sits nice for sure. Glad it worked out for you, now people can see that I was not kidding, now the knock off ones for $40 should be easy for the cheapsters and diyers.

was a MAF relocated to right above the AEM logo ?

So do you feel the money was worth the increase in performance ?

What about fittment issues with the sway bar ?

Like the blue makes it pop. Have you run any 0-60 numbers with the new intake ? My stock is running 10.05 0-60, REALLLY want to start getting that number down.

How does honda feel about intakes reguarding warranty work ?

sorry all the ?'s lol

It looks good!!! 8) Shouldn't it be pointed in the other direction so it can get cooler air or is that the difference between CAI and SRI?

that is the difference between CIA and SRI.... short ram pulls air for under the hood and cia pulls cold air from the wheel well or lower bumper...

So do you feel the money was worth the increase in performance ? YES DIFF worth the money
What about fittment issues with the sway bar ? it fits well, just the mount bar doesnt fit, unless you bent it.Like the blue makes it pop. Have you run any 0-60 numbers with the new intake ? My stock is running 10.05 0-60, REALLLY want to start getting that number down. (Honestly I would lov to dyno it post the numbers)

How does honda feel about intakes reguarding warranty work ? I called honda they stated that it will not effect my 100K warranty but if the part i install was the cause it would not cover it!"

You will want to put the stock airbox on if you take it to the dealer. If you have issues they can deny warranty work on the motor(if the intake caused the issue i.e. hydrolocking). This is a short ram so it shouldn't be an issue.
The honda dealer where i got it... stated it was fine... half the member/staff had mods on their honda's and it doesnt effect their warranty as long as the part installed doesnt effect something else... then it wouldnt be covered.
