California Intake

So I have been looking to try to get a cold air intake, and I found one that looks promising by AEM (part no. 21-748C), but when you go to search it for the 2017 fit (which I have) it says that it is illegal in California, but when you go to search it for the 2016 fit, it says it is legal in California. Could anyone tell me the difference between the 2016 and 2017 fit and would the 2016 intake work on my 2017? Or if you have other recommendations for intakes legal in California or other upgrades for future reference I would like to hear some of those too? Thank you!!!!

page was last reviewed June of 2016, my guess is they have not updated the list to include 2017 and 2018 models.... OR Aem has to work their magic and register newer models. you could simply contact Aem, and ask nicely

Welcome to FF btw, nice first post. I commend you, on a well thought out first post. It's refreshing to not have to cover topics that have been already covered


I do recommend you view a few builds by other members. If you follow a few other 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 members, you'd have an answer to your question on fitment. Recommended follow = UnFitRick, he has an AEM intake = https://www.fitfreak.net/forums/3rd-...ser-build.html


In regards to legal intakes for CA, AFAIK, only Aem has that .... so the limits your choices


A few days ago, I had a chat with another member, and jokingly said some words, that may be helpful to you on your quest for mods. Here is my personal opinion on "impact mods", mods that I feel made a huge diff:
if I were a shop/business owner, Id sell like a "Honda Fit Enthusiasts Starter Kit" in the form of the following:

-Pedal Commander (or similar electronic throttle controller device)
-Ktuner v1.2
-Hasport Rear Motor Mount or Filled Oem Torque Rod with super hard urethane
-Megan Racing or other branded Front Lower Control Arm Brace
-Megan or other brand Rear Sway Bar
-Baffled Oil Catch Can
-Rigid Collars

Thanks evilchargerfan, I'll be sure to check out UnfitRick's build and the "starter kit" you recommended. Also thanks for the warm welcome, I'm excited to be a part of the fit community!!!
