Thanks, I didn't know HKS has one. Where do you guys recommending buying the HKS one or Spoon or Mugen for that matter?

And I appreciate the responses, but I think you guys are defeating the purpose of the thread by offering more intakes. I already have a homemade SRI with an AEM DryFlo filter on that I clean every often too. My point is I want to get rid of it and go to stock airbox but with a better filter. So I don't have to worry about smog even though its about 5 years away or even turning back to stock for a sale.

Thanks again guys, much appreciated.

If you are worried about hydrolock/rainy days, i believe the Injen CAI which can be converted into a SRI just by removing a pipe.

As far as drop in filters go, the Mugen is pretty expensive, but it is a cleanable filter, as is the K&N. I don't think the Spoon filter is a cleanable filter, but it is much cheaper than the Mugen, but still a bit more than the K&N.

I've heard that oiled filters like K&N have been implicated in map sensor failures. Just wondering if it's worth worrying about?

I have a homemade SRI in my car, and there is a bit of a difference besides the extra noise. A friend of mine that helped me install it drove it and noticed it seemed to have a little more "spunk". And i've noticed it especially when it's colder outside.

I did the K&N drop-in filter before the SRI was installed, and there wasn't much of a difference between that and the OEM filter.

i have an intake homemade too... but i kinda like the stock look of the airbox and the subtracted hassle of all the shit that comes with having an intake. and plus spoon runs a stock box. so see u dont need a fancy intake to be fast and track like

k&n filters and mugen filters are the same.

you have to clean both the same way. they are both oil filters. you can actually buy a k&n filter cleaner kit to clean the mugen one. the only difference is that the mugen one comes with something thats like a 3m scrub pad and it says mugen on it. save yourself the $80 and get k&n filter

btw spoon does loes 1hp someone on honda-tech dynoed it. i think the blitz filter is also a foam filter like spoon.

hks from what i hear is not reuseable so you have to keep buying new ones

Also, if you're looking for better throttle response with the stock airbox take a look at this. I know what you mean about having the "jdm appeal" because I'm the same way, I would not dare put an american part on my car lol. But as for filters, if you have the money and are willing to spend it, buy the spoon. Bud def. check out this modded airbox, it seems to me its similair to the comptech icebox for k series motors in that it retains stock design but removes all of the chambers etc.

damn. i better be careful this winter then!

Well crap. I just realized he took the pictures off that had the process up. Basically he opened up the airbox and removed all of the resonators and put it back together and ran an airduct up from the bumper to the chamber, which I imagine is basically what Spoon did with theirs.

the ruined MAP's are not due to the original K&N being installed, its when the user cleans it and over-oils it, is when those MAP sensors could be damaged. The filters are properly oiled from the factory and do not cause damage to the MAP sensor.

i have a K&N replacement air filter. I love it, it add about 2 HP in the dynotest.

If your car is A/T then use a replacement inside your original airbox, but if your car is M/T then you can use open air filter.

Using open air filter in A/T will create some power loss in low RPM

i would just say stick with the k&n drop-in...it'd probably be the best bang for your buck. that way you also get to keep the stock air box and your Fit will breathe better. if you want performance gains it will take more than just a short ram or cold air kit. go with the kraftwerks supercharger kit if you're looking for mad power gains. i keep reading the article about it in my old siphon mag, that things a beast....well, for a Fit anyway i want one for my GD3 but they're so pricey.
