what about the sensor on the intake pipe, is that nessesary? cause if i just bolt on a filter to the intake manifold the sonsor will not be hooked up? i think even on cai and ram intakes they dont connect it do they?

They connect it on short rams.

spracing, if he has a Y7 then the filter is atop the throttle body, so you wouldn't be able to fix a cone to the end, unless you want double filtration.

I would probably screw something up. The only thing it ouwld be good for is better aftermarket intake options, but intakes just make noise. So, I'll most likely just stick with my stock aibox for now.

technically you want a pipe to make the flow more laminar and less turbulent. how much power difference that makes on a civic, i dont know, but theoretically pipe is better than no pipe, and the pipe should be at least 3x as long as the diameter to make the flow laminar

your car will run without the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor in the actual intake, but your fuel mixture may be off and your car may not run as efficient as it should. the valve cover vent tube is connected to the intake for emission reasons, you may get a ticket if it is found not routed back into the intake manifold.
