With gas prices increasing, I am thinking of adding a cold air intake

which one would be the best for hp gain and for better fuel economy

any one with auto. have em? i heard it was hard to install it on them

not sure if your setup under the hood is the same as Ricdoggs but for his we just slapped a K&N filter right on the TB cuz there wasnt enough room to run piping...but I've heard of gen 1's relocating the battery to the back of the car and buying one of those Kragen/Pepboys/Autozone intakes for a 92-95 Civic and cutting them to make a nice lil 60 degree elbow so they can have a chrome intake and get cold air coming from the grill.....some food for thought

automatic G1's have some funky little doohicky on the throttle which makes the Weapon R not work...also the legends with ABS wont work because the ABS thing is in the way

ive posted before that once the air goes through the TB it goes down @ a 90 turns at another 90; then goes up & through the runners making a nice lil 180 & then enters the chamber.
but CAI is where it's at. who am i to argue with the majority, im not columbus.



ohh spit i prolly pissed some CAI diehards off. sorry guys
:D

i do have abs

so basically it wont be easy to put an intake in


maybe if i took it to those shops they can fit that thing in somewhere under the hood

if its too hasle as to relocate the battery somewhere else then forget it

On mine, I bought an intake for a 89-93 240SX and cut it down, and made it fit, The only problem, is that I scratched the hell out of it while installing it. it worked pretty good, especially in the colder nights. :D

CAI 4 AT

Bummer about the ABS. Has anyone with an auto & abs installed a CAI? This is a couple of steps down on my project list so I'm starting my learning process.:)
What I am thinking is this...relocate the battery to the trunk and replcae with an optima gel cell. Install a CAI with a box and put the box where the battery was. Run my pipe down to intake from the bumper.

So I guess my question is, can I install a CAI ( I don't see a problem with relocating the batt)? I can use something other than Weapon-R, can't I?
