Some guidance please

Hey. Today I noticed a rip in my air intake hose. Anyone have any advise for me as I look to buy a new intake? Any good deals would be nice

Re: Some guidance please

The vacuum hose that goes from the crankcase to the intake, right? You can just replace that. If you want a good intake you could get the type S intake and put a K&N drop in filter or get an ebay intake with a K&N filter. You won`t get much power out of them but it`s the best way to go. AEM and all those other brands won`t give you more either really

Re: Some guidance please

Honestly I would just go with ebay 3" intake piping and get a bpi flowstack. Best bang for the buck.

Re: Some guidance please

You might be able to find someone selling one on here.. I have 2 of them I believe but I'm not sure if they are for a 5th gen or 4th gen lol..

eBay probably have some too.. I don't buy from people with less than a 99% positive feedback and I haven't had any problems

I thought flow stacks were bad on a DD because they don't filter the air?

What are you smoking? I'm talking about filtering the intake air. I.E keeping dirt and pebbles out of your combustion chamber.

To keep from wasting your money on some aftermarket noise maker , read my intake write up .


When it comes to fuel economy the technology in the stock intake has you covered in a way that no aftermarket intake can. At low rpms, the stock intake acts to speed up the air flow which is best for low speed, fuel efficient operation.It does that by using 2 funnels, or velocity stacks as they are called ,and a valve that cuts off one of the air inputs to the air intake.

1: The air input to the intake goes thru a velocity stack that directs the air into the intake pipe in a orderly and efficient way that acts to speed up the air flow.Also this part of the air intake is in the bumper so the the intake can draw in cool dense air and so that the intake piping can be lengthened to the correct length for air tuning purposes.



2: Next the air goes down two air paths with one of those paths controlled by a valve .At low rpms a valve at the input to the air intake pipe closes one of two air paths to the rest of the intake piping. In the the same way that putting your thumb over a hose causes the water to speed up ,closing one of the intakes two air input passages acts to speed up the air flow which is ideal for efficient low rpm performance.Above around 3900 rpms. the air intake valve opens up given the engine a low resistance to air flow that the engine needs at mid/high rpms.



3: The air then travels thru a section of pipe and then thru another velocity stack to the air filter element.

4: Form the air filter and in the case of the Type S Intake thru another funnel and in the USDM intake just on a plane section of pipe and on to the throttle body.



Note :Click on the link below to purchase a type S Intake for improved mid rpm throttle response.

JDM Prelude Type S Dynamic Air Intake Kit 220HP BB6 H22A S Spec

5: At low rpms the throttle body when at cruising speeds is only partially open, which like the air valve at the entrance to the intake ,acts to speed up air flow in the same way.So in effect the valve at the input to the air filter is like a second throttle valve placed in a location where it can act to speed up the air flow.

Keeping the velocity and momentum of the air up as it goes thru the intake piping helps the engine to produce power in an efficient manner at low rpms which leads to lower fuel cost for the user.

In conclusion having a device that works to provide for what the engine needs be it low or high rpm operation is what the stock intake is good at and its hard to believe why anyone would want to replace it .

ah this guy,.. he,.. he's got the answers for ya. I Went AEM from eBay, if you do buy make sure its from someone with atleast 98% positive feedback like 00cdmluder said to be safe. I would of liked to of went type S just to keep it simple and add porformance

Re: Some guidance please

Tap/Epoxy will do perfectly fine. It's honestly not a big deal. I had two holes in my intake (aftermarket, they were sensor holes) and I left them unplugged for a year with no problems. eBay intake with a K&N filter is perfect. Otherwise, just duct tape it.

Remember, if you can't duck it, **** it!
