well, it fits decently other than a bitchy coolant hose trying to hog all the space down below..

i have the same thing and am pleased with it.

i'm actually happy w the cosmo intake for my 2002 accent. but no instructions. if you get it, you'll have to cut a piece of the battery tray off, small piece w the bolt for the factory air box. cosmo intake puts out good sounds too!

I just made my own out of ABS pipe and ran it from behind the driver's headlight to the factory airbox. Don't really feel that much performance but it sounds awesome. That said I'm still running a stock filter so that's probably the cause of my lack of performance. I've got a X3 with the 1.5. If your going the homemade route then I suggest keeping the factory airbox but cut a larger hole in it to you can run large pipe into it so you get more airflow.

If you have a manual transmission...you could use a CAI from an eclipse non-turbo...its like 60-70 dollars online...very good.

If it's a GT..It has the 1.6L G4ED engine..which is the same as mine..
if it's a 1.5L..it's a G4EK...
as for the results..it feel's slightly livelier in the high rpm's..sound's like i'm driving a souped up acura whn i rev it...8D
but i recommend a K&N Filter to replace the cheap filter that come's with it.

a couple more things...what is a short ram intake and the difference between that and a CAI
and what is an intake bypass valve..

Short ram is a shorter intake piping setup, maybe 1ft long or less depending & the filter ends up behind your battery

well, i'll try to explain this in as few a words as possible

short ram intake - Better than stock intake
pro's:
fastest overal throttle response due to less distance the air has to travel compared to the stock intake and CAI
more horsepower in your higher RPM ranges
great for high reving engines
cons:
higher risk of heat soak which will rob your horse power due to the filter being deeper inside the engine bay
the horsepower gain is more noticeable in the upper rpm's usually ranging from 6k and up..

CAI - better than stock
pros:
Colder air enters the engine due to the filter being far foreward from heat sources which translates to your engine gaining a richer air content
increased throttle response over the stock intake system due to a much more constant pipe diameter, but not as good of response as short ram
power increase is fairly constant through the entire rpm range
Cons:
harder to install in some cases
throttle response is better but not as good as a short ram
run the risk of waterlogging your engine in the rain


And to answer your last question, there is no way that the CAI will crack your engine block with outside temperature air, Even people with interfreezer systems (A CO2 system that supercools incoming air from your intake to sub 0 temperatures) run low risk of cracking their blocks

There are systems available (IE: the ones available from WeaponR) that are convertable from Shortram to CAI Ram intake, which is essentially a shortram intake with a removeable extension pipe that attaches to the end of their intake cone.... These systems are nice for two reasons
1: You can have the bennefits of both systems
2: You can remove the extension for the ram air in the event of rain so you run 0 risk of water entering your engine...


I hope i've said everything in a manner that everyone can understand...

Please correct me if i'm wrong

bypass valve will help keep you from water logged, which is almost common w the cold air intakes that are close to the ground. the engine will pull most of the air through the bypass valve if the filter is soaked i believe, correct me if i'm wrong anyone...

I have an 03 Accent GT and I have a universal exhaust put on with a short-ram intake put on. And I want my car to sound louder and better with a deeper growl...so would an non-turbo eclipse CAI fit in a automatic....maybe if I moved the batteries over?

Yeah I've been meaning to take some pictures of it for a while but seeing as there is a request and I have time tomorrow I will post some up tomorrow. It's pretty self explainatory from the pictures but I'll let you in on my secrets LOL.
