I've heard that civic intakes will fit celicas. Is this true and if it is what year?
KAMiX
Would you ruin your celica by having a civic part on it?

i think some civic/del-sol intakes have been cut to work.. but i personally dont think its worth the hassle... just buy u a nice Injen CAI .. you'll like the preformance and sound... plus IT'S NOT A HONDA PART! biggrin.gif

there is nothing wrong with honda parts. a car is a car and an intake is an intake.

if it can be made to fit, go for it.

im just sayin .. if he has a problem with honda fit parts ( like some people on this site do ... NOT ME).. then he should go for something designed for his friggin car.. like the injen.. if u wanna get a cheapy civic intake, cut it up, and make it fit.. go for it.. but if u dont want that hastle.. go for the injen.. i recommend it .. thats all im sayin

yea, you could always spend $100 more and get the same power and sound responses rolleyes.gif yes civic intakes do fit with little or no modification. yes, you can go buy the aluminum intake tube at auto zone and buy a k&n filter and have the same power and sound as the more pricey ones for half the price of them. but, hey......i dont have all the money in the world so i had to become creative too. go for it.
celi_gt_racer
hehe... very nice... single me out because im fortunate enough to have a nice CAI... frown.gif

lol. i know i am a smartass. but its the only flaw that i have so it has to be a strong one biggrin.gif jk. nah, i had a cheap civic intake and K&N filter on the celi first. didnt really tell a difference besides sound. then i opted for the Dolocek Cold Air Intake which i unfortunately did not get to use since i decided to throw on tha ole boost. but i did hear great stuff about the DR. CAI. anywayz, you want sound and a little performance, getta "cheap" civic intake tube and filter. you want little sound and better performace get the DR. CAI. but hey, you could always just put turbo on and be done with it. wink.gif

I was just spicing up the thread.... there is this little thing known as sarcasm !

Well my cost for a Injen CAI was $505(cdn) and said UHH NO!! Opted for a used Civic short air for $30 and cut 3" of it and works good.. I didn't want a full Cold air as afraid to inhale water..
snadman
Besdies the fact that the Injen isn't a CAI, sounds good. Injen doesn't make a CAI for our cars, sorry bro! So whoever said they could get you a CAI for our cars was rippin ya cuz they dun make one. It's short ram.

How much do the intake tubes at autozone cost?

autozone civic intake is 39.95 and it works just fine. If you're poor like me then go ahead and get it. You won't notice a huge diff.but you will notice a little diff. not only in the sound but you will feel a tiny amount of tourque gains in the beggining of your power band. I'd say go ahead and get it.

What do u do with the vacuum lines that come with the intakes?
95STHATCH
I didn't even use the vacume lines that can with the intake. Actually I think I had to use the place that that hose was intended for to put one of the smaller vacume lines through. I used the cap that covers it up as an adapter. If you need any specific answers then get back to me and I will help you. I know I'm making this sound hard but it isn't>

i put the injen cold air intake on mine i noticed a big dif. on the sound and performance end. if you are going to do it do it right and get the injen. it is $200 on speed people.com and it also looks good under the hood.
95STHATCH
The injen intake does look really good under the hood but $200 is alot . Too bad that they aren't a little cheaper. frown.gif

If you want a cheap short ram intake get one off of ebay. Sometimes they'e listed for our cars or for the Corolla, so they're made for the 7afe. They're polished aluminum mandrel bent and some have warranties. You can get the intake and cone filter for $25 using buy it now. I think I'm going to do that. You can also buy polished heat shields on there (looks like the injen heat shield) for $10. They're stainless steel. As always, be careful when shopping on ebay. But if you want to go cheap, might as well get one that's made for your car, and not for the Civic (yuck).

As a rule of thumb i look at the users rating. If the persons a power seller than generally u can trust them. and you can look at the rating the got from people that have bought from them.
TRDDawg
I think that I am going to go to an auto store like Autozone or Murray's and buy a couple of exhaust tubing. Then some couplings and hose clamps from Home Depot and create a CAI that will cost way less and maybe create more hp.
