I'm looking for a intake system for a 1999 Civic SiR. Can anyone recommend something?

The best thing for a mildly done up motor is still probably a cold air intake.

I am selling them which can be seen on a blue SiR with Spoon wheels in Edmonton and another one which is on a teal green Civic HB.

They can be had for 200CAD plus taxes and shipping....

aren't the best CAI's aem's?? i heard that they're slightly better than ICEMAN... but i also heard that iceman's fit great on a prelude and aem's don't really fit well.. but we're not tlaking about preludes... we're talking about civics... so yeah..

I've heard that some people had just as much luck with home made CAI's. They actually made as much power but stayed cooler than the AEM unit.

Cairo is actually selling his for &#36130, better get it, it's a good deal, it's only been used for 3 months. :biggrin:

not that anyone asked for my opinion but i'll give it anyway... http://www.asianet.ca/images/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif don't waste your money. if you build it yourself for under &#36100 (including a filter) then yeah... go for it. but i would not spend that money for a couple HP that isn't going to do shiat.

I've seen some home made intakes and they look crappy. I'd rather dress up the engine like Cairo's.

Trust me, you can make it look just as nice as any manufacturer... in any color... Just takes time/imagination. I had a friend that dressed up his engine compartment for a few bux. A bit of brake kleen and some paint... tada.. But if you enjoy spending your cash on stuff that "looks" nice thats up to you.
