    Possible intake for 2L members

    I wasn't aware of how many of you 2L owners want the option to modify your cars. But, taking a look at the stock air box for the 1.8L Civic it's identical to the 2.0L ILX.. if anyone wants to try this I will pay your return shipping if it doesn't fit.

    You have to select the last option "2012-2013" to show the correct intake.

    Honda Civic Takeda Retain Short Ram Intake

    This looks really nice for leasers too because it would be a very easy install and very easy to go back to factory when your lease is up.

    **I double checked the lower part of the air box.. it is the exact model number of each other.. I don't see this having any fitment issues.

    Im sure everyone appreciates the info dude. Good lookin out.

    Just have to look search for 2012 civic 1.8L and it should fit no issues.
    Ill be picking one up not this paycheck but next so Ill post about it then.

    Was looking at AEM CAI and Injen CAI. I figure ill go cold air this time around. I went with the short ram with the integra and bankes off the cowl induction. Looking at the K&N short ram got me interested in that. Though pricey for a short ram it comes with a nice heat shield. Ill go with the AEM CAI like I said and fabricate my own heat shield for above it and throw a prefilter on for those rainy days.

    Do you have a 2.0L or 2.4L(manual transmission)?

    Looking at the engine bays and stock parts of both cars.. It really looks like any of the 1.8L intakes should work on the 2L.. worth a try.

    My AEM has pulled almost right at ambient temperatures so that would be a good idea!

    Haha, don't worry about a heat shield. Ambient means the temperature outside of the motor bay. The motor runs at about 190F and my intake in motion pulls generally either the temperature it is outside to plus 7F

    Why? Any good intake can benefit from a heat shield. Same concept as treating your downpipe with the temp coating.

    And yes I understand what ambient is.
