Help with new air filter.

Hey guys/galls

I wanted to replace my original air filter with one of those power filters (or whatever you call it)



The problem is my 2nd generation Prelude has carbs.

So what do I do fit the new filter on the beginning of the air intake pipe and just take the stock filter out of its housing.

Or do I have to fit them strait to the carb? I thought you had to do that but then I saw extra hozes and sensors...

Could you please help me..

Greetings from the Netherlands.. :P

I don't know how to attatch one of those to the carbs... But I hear that you can buy a stock replacement K&N filter (Square one) and just cut the sides off of your stock air box. Apparently it sounds super badass too...

You can. I can't remember the part number for it off hand though. And the airbox mod does sound badass! I've had mine that way for 4yrs now...

Re: Help with new air filter.

yeah well its a metal air box thats directly fitted to the engine. And I already bouht one of these because a K&N is the best but also the most expencive so do I just fit this to the inlet pipe of the air filter and the remove the stock filter from its housing?

You could, but it would be way easier and make more sense though if you just returned the one you bought and bought the correct one to fit the air filter housing. Then, while you have the cover off, take off all the metal around the housing and leave it open element style.. :)

haha, thats understandable. You could just slap the cone filter on and get another airbox from the junkyard to play with or somethin'

Yeah well I live in the Netherlands and this is a pretty rare car here. Besides mine i've seen 1 other 2nd gen ever! So just going to the local junk yard won't do me any good

Re: Help with new air filter.

Another thing you can do is make a cover for the square air filter out of some plexiglass or something. IIRC, I think there was someone on another forum I saw that did that with like 1/4" thick plexiglass, or 1/8"? Then you wouldn't have to cut up the stock airbox for the future... :)
