GE8 Intake Options Questions

Just ordered a 2013 TW Fit Sport MT, should have it any day now. Need to start modding, not much else to say about that, lol. I have three questions.

1) What intake shows the most gains?
2) What intake is the loudest?
3) What intake costs the least? (no home-made solutions please)

Thank you,

Carthik

PRM Jet Stream Intake. Same answer for all questions. Designed and fabricated in Ontario from parts made in California.

Read this thread if you want to learn stuff, if you don't have some automotive knowledge base some of it may be Greek to you, some of the pics are broken unfortunately:

I would agree PRM and if I were to get an intake it would be PRM. I can't justify cost vs. gain to myself though at this point, even if it's not that expensive.

Thank's for the link Wanderer.

I know there will be marginal gains if any with this motor, it'll be more for noise than anything else really.

So 2 points for PRM thus far.

I own a '09 TW GE8 Honda Fit and run it with a PRM Intake along with a Tanabe Medalion touring exhaust and I am completely happy with its sound and function.

Any videos? Would you say your intake is loud?

I think you need to skip the brand name intakes and really consider DIY

Im noticing all the effects claimed by PRM pwners and I only spent $15 bucks


It would be too easy to add a few lengths of piping and couplers to extend to a cold air intake and increase the low and midrange torque while still maintaining a nice increase above 4500rpms

I went Injen because it is a true cold air intake. It puts the filter below the front headlight.

I did a bunch of looking and what i came up with was, i used the OEM Honda Airbox from a Honda CRZ. The boxes are similar in design. The only real diff is teh CRX gets it air from the front of the car and the Fit gets its from the side behid the battery and ECU. It bolts in almost 100% if you get the OEM brackets. The only bracket i can not find is the tranny bracket which doesnt exist in any spreadsheet. The box works fine using the OEM Fit tranny bracket but just sits on it rather than bolting to it. I used a drop in Spoon filter and enjoy it alot. Felt a huge increase in midrange but can not tell you if it made any overall HP but mid-range is alot more usable while driving. The only ohter bracket you need to fab is a support bracket to support the factory snorkel.

Can you please post pictures and DIY of this conversion using Honda CR-Z airbox ?

Hello,
the easiest way is to upload your photo to photobucket.com website.
after that you will see the website link for that picture at photobucket.com.

later when you want to post it at this forum
click the button which have yellow colored and picture of mountain inside this yellow button,
that will open a small window where you can fill (or copy/paste) the website link from the specific picture at photobucket.com

You can also email yourself the pictures and download them to your desktop, then use the photoalbum feature on this site and add them to your fitfreak photo section, then link them in this site.


Once they are online, use [img] the picture http address [/img]

no spaces in there
