U-Shaped tube stock air intake

What is the U shaped tube for on the stock air intake on the 5th gen prelude?
I cant seem to figure out a possible purpose for it.


Thanks alot!

Re: U-Shaped tube stock air intake

pretty sure its just a resonator. to help make the intake quieter. gotta think they try there best to make cars(in general) as quiet as possible from the factory.

Yes. That's exactly what its for. It also opens up a little more when you're under heavy throttle, theres a butterfly valve in there that opens up another pipe in the resonator

There's a writeup that I did under the DIY section on how to remove it.

ummm no. it doesnt. lol yes stock there is another camber that opens up, but thats not what he talking about. lol and the reason for that second camber opening up, isnt to help keep noise down. It there to help make more top end power.. hense why the valve on opens once you get to 5200rpm? IIRC.....
*tryin to find a pic of the piece he's talking about*

edit:
he's talking about the piece circled. you can kinda see it there on the bottom..

ding ding dingggg. there's different sized resonators on stock intakes to isolate different sound frequencies, which quiets it down. the new camaro has i think 8 different resonators on the stock intake
