Re: eBay air intake

On preludes, for all intents and purposes, the piping of the intake is more-or-less all the same. A $5 ebay piping will be within a few hp of a $300 AEM V2. The filter tho, is a very good idea to upgrade to a K&N.
You could clean the intake with anything really; Simple green, Seafoam, engine degreaser...

Re: eBay air intake

I had the ebay one too. Worked fine, sounded great. Still got rid of it for a stocker with a K&N drop in though.

Re: eBay air intake

shop by dimension. Inner diameter, outer diameter, length, and important, search by cylinder filters, not cone, so it 1. fits 2. get more filter surface 3. get one with a neck so you can fit it on like the ebay filter.

One of these categories will have your filter, see if you can find a match in the "round straight" first

Re: eBay air intake

It's the filter that is your main concern for clean air induction. The pipes purpose ie merely to xfer the air from the filter to the TB. And investing in a K&N filter is the best decision to make. I bought one myself and has used the restore kit that helps to clear out the old dirt and soak in new oils onto the filter!

Re: eBay air intake

Reading more about the k&n a lot of people are bashing the filter (one link below)saying it brings in more dirt and can result of engine failure.. Is there things you can do to clean out and previouse dirt Let into your engine

So wait.... K&N air filters really just lots more dirt in your engine? - Page 3 - AnandTech Forums

Re: eBay air intake

Ok, the scoop on that is this. You have to clean the element. Not in 100,000, more like 36,000 miles (I live in NYC air quality is garbaj). Following the instructions, your element has oil in it, and needs to be re oiled. You apply a LIGHT coat to the element after you clean it, then let it settle in for 12-24 hours. After that you reinstall.

Some people think You just wash, oil, drop it back in. NNNNOOOOOOO! These people don't read. You could also get a maintenance free dry element that will last 50,000 miles, then throw out. K&N is just better.

Re: eBay air intake

^^Correct.

Plus, if you're doing you're oil changes on time and not neglecting your typical maintenance on the car, you don't have to worry about anything.

I live in Albuquerque where dust storms are more than common, so I clean my K&N every other oil change for good measure. I change the oil at night and clean the filter and oil it, so that it sits overnight and I can install it again in the AM.

Re: eBay air intake

Also, anandtech forums are computer people. If something doesn't work 100%, it don't work.LOL! I read the pages and the k&n rep might be a tool, the product outshines that fool. All my rides had a k&n air filter, never had any problems. Ever. Just follow the instructions.

A little cheat I do for zero downtime: buy 2 filters. Exchange dirty for clean, wash the dirty filter, let dry, re-oil the filter, now I have forever to let the element oil settle. My.02

those filters dont last forever... easy way to check their condition: take one and look inside it against the sun - if you can see VERY tiny holes where sun shines through - dust gets in from those holes - filter is garbage

Re: eBay air intake

You misread me Type T. Instead of waiting for 12-24 hours for a single filter oil to dry(no car to drive), I can swap the dirty filter for the clean one, clean the dirty filter at my leisure, and have WEEKS for the element oil to congeal onto the first filter's cotton. Of course the filters do not last forever, unfortunately I haven't had a car Long enough to see a K&N filter fail yet.

What have you been doing to your filters man?

Sorry to bring back this thread , but I opened up my intake and wiped inside the intake piping and on the paper towel was a little bit of dust on it . Is that normal?

Re: eBay air intake

Have a pic of the paper towel? The oil element holds onto that dust, so the air is cleaner than normal. If you removed the filter and rattled it and chunks (1mm or bigger) came out from the inside, that's bad.

Also, if you had a dirty intake pipe from the previous filter failing, the new filter would cling onto it as well from the inside. There was a website that did an entire tear down of mesh filters, steel, k&n wet filter and dry filters. Damn I wish I remembered the thread name. They had pics of filtrations for each brand. K&N did the best work.

Re: eBay air intake

Well I went in deep into the pipe to clean and it looks like there alot of black residue build up at the end of pipe , where the two skinny tubes connect to intake piping,
I'm not sure if it's the filter .

In using a filter a friend of mine had , said its a k&n but doesn't say k&n on it ?

Re: eBay air intake

Ok, the black residue is from the Positive Crankcase Ventilation(one of the tiny tubes) puts oil back into the engine through the intake pipe, supposed to keep engine cool/clean. As long as the oil isn't collecting at the filter, normal. The other is vaccuum, at least I think, it's been a while under a Honda hood.

K&N say it somewhere or have a part number that looks like xxx-xxxxxx-xx on it. If it doesn't, don't know what to tell you. If you're paranoid you can look up a similarly sized filer and replace it. Usually though if someone says it's a K&N, and they are your friend, it is cause that type of lie will get your ass kicked.

Re: eBay air intake

Howdy !!

Im brand new to the site so I firstly would like to say a big Hi to everyone!!!!

I bought myself a lovely 92 SI import last week with only 82K on the clock!!

When I lifted the bonnet I seen a lovely blue intake pipe with a nice blue cone filter on the front, The gent I bought the car off told me it was a 200 quid intake system, Only to find that when I checked his feedback this 200 quid intake was this 30 quid lump that he bought off Ebay only a few months ago!! (MORON!!)

Anyway I was just wandering if anyone knew if theese were any good??

I was thinking of going with KnN, but will this be a straight swap with the filter? or will i need to chance the intake pipe aswell? anyone know what ones to reccomend??

cheers Dith!!!!!
