Lightbulb Intake tube

I bought the Honda Civic Intake tube last night, went out today and removed the violin case..... where the heck does the breather hose plug in to?

leaking somewhere. MAF not hooked up? Something else unplugged.

Some supercharged cars blow.......Others just pick up and move.

You mean the MAF plug that goes in to the air box?

what goes into the airbox is the intake air temp sensor...the maf sensor is the silver thing right after the box before the civic tube.... that will cause the car to run like crap... could be dirty, so im sure if it hasnt been cleaned, u should probably clean it...



so it will go airbox, mafs, bendy tube (lol), and then civic tube


make sure u didnt make a simple mistake like putting it on backwards or somethin

I got it all on, so I thought, went to get gas. Thought to myself "Not bad, no difference in sound, but a little more get up and go".... Then it stalled!

Shifted in to neutral, started it 3 times, got it in to drive, had to limp it home basically. F****ing flex tube came off! For some reason it came off. Dunno why. Put it BACK on, started right up. Hoping this won't happen again.

Anyone know of an aftermarket hose I can get?

i know that if you go to a big auto store that they will have the intake hose...i think a BIG kragen store and not a small one in between 2 shops will have one...i went to a kragen and they told me that they didnt have it there but they had it at the BIGGER kragen which is farther...so yea they have it

told u to make sure everything was clamped on tight...lol...or maybe it was that time for the tubing to go in tube heaven

Yeah, it was soooo much of a gain that I went back to my violin case.

Make sure you have spare hose clamps, beers, Tylenol, a punching bag... or a cat (kidding), enough time to kill.


Good luck, and may the force be with you!
