$45 ebay one vs. diy autozone?

Anyone think there's much difference in this: 06-07 Honda Fit Jazz 1.5 1.5L L15A1 Air Intake Kit p:eBay Motors (item 400063083389 end time Aug-20-09 10:06:18 PDT)

and making your own? Looks like pretty much the same thing?

I removed my SSRI today and went back to stock airbox. I can't get over the engine noise from the intake, I'm not used to it anymore. I think I'm getting older because I don't like the noise anymore lol!. It was fun at first but I suddenly missed the smooth ride. I maybe installing it again but I'm not really sure if I will upgrade anything performance wise in the Fit. Maybe nice wheels, air vent visor or rear bumper applique but no engine modification.

Also I notice when I removed the elbows I notice some peeling of the paint inside. I thought it was cracked but when I felt it, no cracks but peeled chrome paint. I'm not sure how much this will affect or if this will damage the engine. Just sharing my experience.

Black01 I love the engine noise!! Thanks for the info about the peeling chrome. I painted mine black but I'll keep an eye on it.

I just got my SSR done today. Very easy to install. The only mistake I made was when I failed to notice how short the wire for the AIT sensor was. So when I drilled my hole into the elbow the sensor would not reach. It took me two elbows instead of one but the result is awsome. I love the noise!!! I can finally hear my engine! The throttle response is awsome.

I think I saw a thread about the SSRI on the '09 and i think the concensus was that it was a no. the intake path is much different.

If it is bumping, take the stock intake mount out. It's like 2 bolts I think?

If it is touching on the front it could be a problem while dropping to a lower gear to decelerate, on the side it should be OK.... Tweak it a bit with the clamps loosened then snug them down to get it moved away.

A lot of vibration

I'm getting some rattling when idling due to the filter. I have 2 90 degree elbows in there now. Should I swap one for a 60 or even a 45? What if I used 3m double sided tape to cushion it or even attach it?
I also thought about trimming the reducer so that I could shift the intake over to the left a little bit.

TIA

If you can do it with a 45 or sixty it will smooth the flow also.

^^ what he said. 60 degrees would be perfect though. I know because that's what I had installed in mine and no rubbing or rattling. It was a perfect fit.

Any new news on their SSRI's? How did it hold up? I will be putting in mine tonight just because the cone filter is cleaner and it's now time to clean my K&N but I'm lazy to clean it so I will temporarily install my SSRI then I will clean my K&N drop in filter this weekend.

They hold up just fine. Had mine on for months up to a year, I forget, without any problems whatsoever.

Just threw mine in last night. Love it so far, the sound is great and if you drive it in a relaxed (but not QUITE granny) style, you don't even hear the difference which I like. Only hear it when you want the teeny little bit of oomph it gives.

Gonna keep an eye on the clamps and such, tighten as needed.

Also, picked up every part needed at MOPAC in Langley, spent about $100 overall.

Easy to install and easy to notice the gains. Then again, anything on 109hp is a gain

Props to SID
