Does anyone know if when you take off the intake pipe (the part with the resonators), does it affect your fuel mixture in a bad whay or is there anytihng else that is bad about it?

The only thing that does is make your car louder. It won't give you any power (maybe .0005hp) and it won't mess with your a/f ratio.

It may suck in a little more air but it will be hot air so it kind of defeats the purpose. You can use flex tubing to give yourself cold air and get a better filter and you may get some gains.

So by removing the resonator it gets louder, ok. But is it a good louder or a not good louder if you know what I mean. Some louds make the car sounds great and fast others sound ricey

It sounds like you are trying to save a few dollars and not get a CAI. You will still have to insert the MAS somewhere. If you are willing to spend an extra $40 go here
http://www.gmpperformance.com/IntakeSystems.htm
At the bottom of the screan the have 3" pipes. Get the pipe wit a 45 degree angle (You will not need any reducers). You can now pull the stock air box off (you may have to shorten the pipe) and then you can run the filter to the front of the engine where the stock intake got air forced into it.

Things to remeber:
1)If you do cut the pipe to smooth the edges and make sure there are no little metal pieces left in the pipe.
2)You will need clamp the intake with hose clamps so it wont fall off.
3)You will have to brace it. You can do this with a piece of metal strap (make sure it is thick and sturdy or it will break) Clamp one end to your filter and bolt the other end to a secure place on the engine.

If you need more details just let me know.

Well, just think about this, if you get 2000 of these free mods done on the car you will gain one horsepower. And then if you have 2 tibs racing, one with the 2000 mods with equal driving ability we all know who would win. Hehe, I can't sleep again

You must leave the sensor in. If you remove the pipe you stil have to reinstall the sensor (MAS) somewhere in the intake.[/img]

The section of tubing with the wires in it is the MAF, Mass Air Flow sensor. That can be anywhere between the air filter and the Throttle Body, but works best within 6" of the Throttle Body.

The sensor in the air box is the Intake Air Temp sensor (IAT). It can be placed anywhere between the Air filter and the MAF, but it should remain UPSTREAM of the MAF.

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.

If you start sucking up hotter air... you will loose power...If you turn your MAFS backwards your car jumps from 500rpms to 1500rpms and just keeps going back and forth.

if you car is a manual tranny u can order a vibrant intake for a 97 civic ex...it works great...dynoed 7hp more.....general cost is around $129...i personally use an rs akimoto

see http://members.tripod.com/harrisautosports

under how to<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

most intakes can be had between $99-$250
just make sure it is an oil treated cotton filter and not a foam filter (water will absorb in the foam) 5 years with no problems and no "bs aem bypass"<img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>
