Short Ram Intake

I just bought a short ram intake, i got all the stock airbox off then i say that there are 2 tubes and the sensor going into the airbox, the short ram i bought only has a hole for the sensor and i tube connection, is this right, or did i pick up the wrong intake?

Where did you buy it from? Ebay, a store classifieds? Did you get the right model for your car?

You could return it or just drill a small hole in it.

you got the 96-98 Civic intake. The 99-00 has 2 lines going to it. One from the valve cover, and another for the fuel injection air control valve (FIA), both need to be run in, or you could run the FIA into the intake, and make a DIY catch can for the valve cover (much better IMO)

EDIT: This only comes on 99-00 Si engines (D16Y8)

Matt, i have a 98, and my cai came with three holes. But with two plugs to block the holes. I blocked one hole (it had nothing going into it) then i had to hook up the air/fuel tempature sensor ( i believe that was it) and the tube that connects to my valve cover.

So i think the 96-98's do need two holes.

But to answer your question, just drill another hole, but make sure it is the right size.

yeah thats normal, when I meant the holes I was talking about the rubber tubing that connections to the little nipple, not the rubber gromet goes.

On 96-98 there should be 1 hardline nipple on the intake, and one rubber gromet where the intake temp sensor reader goes.

On 99-00 there is 2 hard lines and one rubber bushing.

just return it if it's not a problem and get the right one

Tip: Always Triple Check when your getting parts for your car
