aem cold air intake? ONE PEICE OR TWO?

i have an 01 civic ex, and i purchased an aem cold air intake for it SEVERAL months ago....after browsing this site for several hours every day, ive seem to come accross something, well, odd? my aem cold air intake is two peices, meaning in the middle it must be joined by a silicon joint.....i have seen numerous pics w/ the aem intake as ONE peice? how is this so!?

thanks, mark

Mine is a 2 peice as well and if I am not mistaken it goes from 3" tubing to 2 1/2 tubing towards the throttle body. Correct me if I am wrong.

Two pieces mean that it is set up for the Bypass valve (newer model)
One piece mean that it is an older one that was made before the bypass was created.
I asked AEM about it; so people with the one piece would have to cut the one piece into two pieces
to use the bypass valve.
That is the only true difference.
Hope that will help you guys.

Both intakes are two pieces but they are split at different spots. The Ex is splits after the second bend next to the engine where you can easily see it. The Lx splits after the 3rd bend just before your filter where you can't really see it.

I own an AEM CAI, it came in two peices and if you want to add a bypass valve, you have to cut towards the top. The higher the better. the connector hose and hose clamp hold the peices together. thanks!

I just got an AEM cai, I was wondering, is the bypass valve really necessary? The intake doesn't fall that low, I know it would be safer, but does anyone think it's absolutley necessary? It seems as long as I avoid driving thru a foot deep puddle I would be safe...any comments appriciated [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

yes the bypass is neccessary, unless you only take your car out when its dry. does anyone know why the bypass valve doesnt fit on one end, but fits the other? does this change when you cut? can you just keep tightening the hose clamp? HELP!
