Re: new intake for my 5th gen

Niiiice! I just bought the same one from the same site... I bought it three days ago...can't wait for it to get here.

Did you reset your ECU? Not that I'm an expert, but I've read in a few places about the importance of doing that after you install an intake.

Does is sound any different than stock? Do you notice any difference in the low end?

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

actually i didnt reset my ECU. completely forgot about that haha. ill do it first thing tomorrow. i just dont want to deal with putting all my radio presets and sh*t back. it does sound a little better than stock. i pulled into my buddies work and he noticed it first thing. and its definately an improvement in low/middle performance. def worth the money. especially since my stock intake was nearly ripped in half anyway lol

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

Sweet! It's always reassuring to know I made a wise investment. ha ha.

Also, it's cool that you didn't reset your ECU, yet. It'll be a neat experiment...you'll have to let us know if you experienced an even bigger difference after you reset it.

I sure hope I can toss it in there in about 10 minutes...actually, if I can do it in an hour I think I'll be happy. I heard a rumor that there is a clamp that is really challenging...any troubles? Did it come with all the parts needed?

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

an hour is definately pushing. if youre not mechanically inclined at all it still shouldnt take more than a half hour lol. it came with everything you need, except one hose clamp i think. its a pretty big one too. the toughest part was putting the little springs on, those were seriously almost impossible. theres one on the stock intake, it holds the rubber tunnel part onto where the filter goes. i just took off that spring and used it where i thought a hose clamp should go. i actually broke a spring in half trying to get it on. you can see where the filter part connects onto the rest that im missing it. its only 4 parts, a rubber piece you hose clamp to the throttle body, the big hard plastic piece, that elbow piece, and the box that replaces the stock filter box.

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

Does it clamp up with the original lower airbox or does it come with its own?

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

clamps to the original.
I got mine in the winter of 08 and I love it.
What is this resetting of the ecu though? I didnt do that (unless u just mean having the battery unplugged for x amount of time lol).
If u really want the sound to improve more, take out your intake resonator. Oh man I love the way my lude sounds now :)

ya I would. looks like a 4" clamp, it's pretty big haha.

yes it clamps right to the lower part

and ya he means unhooking your battery for x amount of time. I read last night just unhook it, let it idle for a good ten minutes so the ecu knows how much air the new intake is pulling in or something like that. migh as well give it a try

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

I unhooked my battery. seems to run a little better, or maybe I'm just thinking that. either way it didn't hurt. broke 2 more of those springs that hold to airbox to the elbow. really seems impossible to get that one on.

For anyone checking this thread out on the Type-S...I found this link...could be helpful. This is where I saw the ECU reset thing.

http://www.hondaprelude.to/forums/sh...ad.php?t=25878

Okay...found some more specifics on the ECU reset. Seems like a good idea.

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

UPS...I just installed mine...and it was quite easy. I received two clamps and two springs, and didn't need anything else. It was a direct bolt on.

I didn't have any trouble with the springs (I've seen a lot of talk about how troublesome they are and how people are breaking them)...I think it comes down to the order in which you put it together.

If anyone would like more details on how to put it together...I'd be happy to share my experience to ensure there aren't any mishaps...just let me know.

Once I had it all together...I did the ECU reset thing and took it for a spin. Here's what I noticed (not too different from what everyone else reported):

1) Immediately the car seemed to idle smoother
2) At 3000 RPM it does sound a little louder (not too much, IMO)
3) VTEC kicks in more smoothly (could be due to ECU reset). Before install, VTEC would seem to kick in kinda rough and jerk the car, IMO abnormally so. Before install, when it kicked in the engine would rev up (almost as if in neutral), and then finally it would thrust you forward (does this make sense?). Now, between the 5000 rpm and 5200 rpm the VTEC kicks in with a smoother transition(less hesitation and jerk with more immediate pick up).
4) Power gains were minimal (barely noticeable), but I have yet to upgrade my exhaust.

So, would I purchase the Type S intake again? Yes!

Install time: roughly 30 minutes (being extra careful).

I did purchase a K&N filter with my intake, too, so that probably helped a little as well.

My next mod is going to be the suspension...JICs are on they way!

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

that's good to hear man, told you it wasn't that hard lol. it's VTEC though, not VTECH lol. that spring that attaches the airbox to the elbow, how did you get that one on? I broke two springs and I ordered another from Honda, don't want to break that one too

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

Yikes...what a disgrace I am to all Prelude owners...thanks for correcting me. lol. I knew I should have double checked what I wrote before posting...shoot!

Here's what I did and it worked quite well:

1) Attach larger rubber elbow to the throttle body (put both clamps provided on each end and make sure they are secured so they don't fall off while you work on the rest of the intake).

2) Attach the small tube running from valve cover into the hole on the rubber elbow (use small finger clamp from old intake to secure it).

3) Now put both springs on the small 15 degree elbow piece first before attaching the elbow piece to air box or large "S" piece (that way it's completely flexible so you can manipulate it as needed to put springs on).

4) Connect the larger spring ends together and keep tension on it so it doesn't come undone. Start putting it in the track all the way around the elbow piece...bending and squishing the elbow while working the spring into the track.

5) Then do the same for the smaller spring on the other side of the elbow that connects to the longer "s" shapped arm.

6) After both springs are on, then push the larger side of the elbow piece into air box end.

7) Then push the smaller end onto the "S" shapped piece.

8) Next, work the entire assembly (airbox/small elbow/larger "S" shapped piece) into position and lock the air box down with the clips.

9) Now, work on making the connection with the larger rubber elbow piece you attached to the throttle body in step 1).

10) Finally, tighten down the clamps...ta da!

UPS...I decided to just list all steps in case someone else looks at this and is starting from square one.

Hope this helps ya...let me know if you have any questions.

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

....i didnt even realize this ecu thing yall were talking about...

but could someone clarify why you would reset an ecu manualy after installing an intake?


that makes no sense...
wouldn't the car cycle through itself?

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

thanks SoBe, I'm gonna disconnect the airbox, then out the spring on. I think I kept breaking springs because the elbow wasn't flexible enough.

and iheartmybb6, I actually read on a few forums (Nissan, Subaru, acura and Honda forums) that resetting your ecu does help. I guess before you reset it, it still runs the way it did before your mod. but after you reset it, it learns I guess, and makes the car run optimally? I don't know haha, but I'll take peoples words for it. couldn't hurt

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

Yeah, UPSluder, it's definitely much easier putting both springs on the 15 degree elbow piece first, before attaching to the other pieces.

iheartmybb6...You are correct, the ECU should automatically cycle through and make adjustments. However, based on what I've read, the ECU uses fuzzy logic which will retain "old" information and unless it is completely cleared out it won't adjust accurately. Doing the manual reset wipes the slate clean, unlike the auto cycling. I figure it doesn't hurt anything to do it...unless you have a stock headunit and no security code.

Re: new intake for my 5th gen

heh, i bought my intake used, springs were already on the elbow.
I just attached it all in my room, then went into the garage and connected the airbox and the manifold.
Glad I didn't have to deal with those springs.
