Is it same as the 2003?
If so then there's this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Aem-Inta ... 0275526085
$90 is a steal for the complete system! I ordered one for my G, which all other retailers are selling for no less than $300.

Hi everyone and zeemmee ,
few days back I also visited TazWEED and askd fr cold air intake for my civic (FD 08) the kit (d pipe,ruber,screws and the filter) was also the same brand ..somthing like CHE.. I was told its made in Thaiwan but i think its made in china because even many Thaiwanez products are from China... and the price was AED 350.. I think the best thing is to take the kit from them and just add a universal K&N filter on top of it (must be around AED 200) so the total cost will be AED 500 which is still durt cheap in comparison with the K&N kit which is around AED 1200-1500...

The only question is that the kit that I was shown requires some mechanical work ...I mean the filter goes all the way down and I think it will end up somwhere bhind the front bumper .... I didnt take the kit as I was told if it doesnt fit I will have to return it back in 1 day ...n it was 30th DEC so I didnt really had the time to go n get it checkd... can some one help me with the fitting :roll: ...????

I like the engine bay of ur CRX Nice and clean..I wish the Civic FD (06-08)engine bay was also so simple but instead of left the filter is on the right side and also there is not much space to fix the filter easily...or maybe I dont know how to do it the right way....
Is any of the members in here good with mechanics...and willing to lay a hand..coz I really dont trust the garages..they fix one thing n spoil another..

Also another option will be K&N 57-0668 series
http://www.knfilters.com/search/product ... od=57-0668
But am not sure of the price and if it will help with performance..?? :roll:
on one site I was the price was around $190..which is the same overall cost of ..

if your planning on ordering from the states or whereever ... forget K&N n go AEM ... its " Engineered to Outperform" :)
