[Q] AEM CAI either Tib 97-01 or Accord 94-97

I think I saw somwhere in this forum that instructs how to install either both of CAI with pictures but couldn't find what I was looking for. Can anyone knows where these pages are linked to? or anyone who is willing to update the intallation process again?

And I am still confused whether Tib, or Accord AEM CAI will be easier for me to install on Elantra 2002. I am looking for CAI that I don't have to cut or bend.
Thank you~

Re: [Q] AEM CAI either Tib 97-01 or Accord 94-97

if u go with the tib or the accord u WILL have to do mods. If u want one that fits just right than buy one that is made for ur CAR!!! no matter what u do, if it is not made for ur car than u will have to bend and cut. U have a 02 elantra...if u had to choose between the accord or the tib than go with the ACCORD..it will be less trouble for u. DO NOT DO ANYTHING AT HOME UNLESS U HAVE PROPER TOOLS and U KNOW WHAT UR DOING!!!! check out the thread "01 aem cai not easy" by sirtech. Then decide!

Accord intake is what you want for your car. The piping diameter is 3" so you'll need to get a Dremel to cut the hole open wider to fit the pipe in. Also invest in some rubber hose or liner for the side of hole so any rubbing by the intake won't cut through the piping. There might also be an intake out by KORE motorsports thats 2 1/4" and Shark racing but SR has quit selling stuff right now. Also HP.com might be workign on an intake also.

cutting is good..if ur gonna cut than do invest in the rubber hose. I bent mine with a heavy duty pliers. The pliers that the plumbers use, the pliers is not straight but curved, so it allows u to bend it. Cuase when u bend u dont need rubber to protect it cause there is nothing that might be jaged enough to damage the intake.

if you get the Accord 2.5" intake you should have minimum extra mods to make.... but the 3" is prob better so just bend it and enjoy

The Accord intake is good. I bend the metal back and I got it to fit. You do need to use the rubber hose, it does rub alot.

I dont understand why you people buy the accord intake if you have to cut you car. I got the tib intake and i didnt have to cut anything. but i guess it is just your own personal preference.

Re: [Q] AEM CAI either Tib 97-01 or Accord 94-97

I finally got around to intalling the 97-01 tiburon cai in my 2001 Elantra. Anyone who say's this is a drop in and go job is out of they're minds. The one they sent me was a bear to install and i'm preety mehcanically inclined. I had to cut a corner of the battery pan off for starters.The positive battery cable got in the way so i had to modify the way it went on the battery. That wasn't to bad but i also had to cut the bracket on the intake that was supposed to help hold it up because it wouldn't mount on to anything. The tube was about 3 inches or so to short to even go on the flexible hose that comes off the Throttle body so i had to buy an adapter for it. It still isn't in the way i want it because it's rubbing on the hood so i need to do some more adjusting. I had to buy a freeze plug to fit the hole used apparently by tiburon's for some sensor that the Elantra's don't have. Overall it was the biggest pain in the behind i have ever had. If you plan on doing this either use a long weekend or do a lot of planning before you do it. It's going to tak e a while. When i can i'll post some pic's. This is a quote from my original post.

Copy and paste this link for more pics. It breaks up.
