does the 3" ITR CAI fit EK d16 sohc vtec?

tried searching... nothing

3" vs 2 1.4"... I guess i would have to cut the pipe a bit and custom fit at the throttle body


any experience getting a 3" cai pipe in an EK? will it fit, yes or no..



thanks

just get one made for a sohc vtec... too big IMO. i think it would really bog it down at lower rpms. i'm not sure, but logically it would make sense.

Get a reducer pipe made, exhaust shops can do that easily.

You can get a rubber reducer i belive from jrp. Like the ones they use in the intercooler kits connectors. Those blue silicone couplings.

Exhaust gas gets much hotter than the actual engine bay temperature, I doubt that is gonna work.

What are you implying by that? The intake air temp. is not hot at all. The intake already comes with a coupler to mount the pipe to the TB. A replacement coupler won't cause any harm.

Unless you meant something else that I didn't get.

I just used those stainless steel adjustable clamps. The diference in diameter isnt that much so the clamps work fine. It was kinda ghette but it worked.
