K&N FIPK

Hey Everyone, Im Just Wondering If The K&n Fipk Is A Good Choice For An Intake, And Are The Gains The Best Of All The Intakes Available For Our Cars? What Is The Diff Between K&n Fipk And K&n Fipkii? Just Wondering, And Where Can I Get It For A Good Price? Worth The Buy? Or Just Go Stock?

Farage is on a distinguished road
yea from what i hear the K&N is the best gain for our cars due to plastic pipe and good heat shield.

There is only a FIPK II. I've got it. It doesn't give that great of gains, but it sounds damn cool.

It's a good buy if you don't mind spending the money. It was worth it IMO. I'm pretty sure only the k&n fipk II is available now...not sure where you'd find an fipk.

The server automatically does that when someone posts in ALL CAPS. So instead of coming out like "HEY GUYS I'M A NEWBIE PLZ HELP ME KTHX" it comes out as "Hey Guys I'm A Newbie Plz Help Me Kthx"

Try some of the venders on this site like robearracing.com or parts411.com or something. They'll help you out and hook you up with a good deal. Or go to the group buy, for sale, or retail sale sub forums to find some venders from this site.

Heh. I put the stock intake on again. Can't make up my mind. I say say stock if you drive below 4k rpms most of the time. You'll only get that 5whp at 6k rpms. So it's worth it if you always rev up when driving.

01-05 have the exact same engine and the same engine bay. There's nothing stopping someone with a 05 from buying a 01 i/h/e.

I agree exactly with this...I am back to stock...I had the K&n fipkII on for 1 week, it is mostly noise , little gains, like 4.6 hp gains up at 6000 rpm's ..I live in the city with lots of start, stop driving, I hardly ever get up to 6000, but I drive fast, redline is a 7, so 6 is pushin it , but if you drive like that, get one......you can also search for fipk II on here and get lots of reviews, and it is reviewed in the parts review area by a couple people, I still recommend you stay stock, put $220 into something else for your car...but it is up to you bro.

5whp if you have a DX/LX, but not for the EX.

It still a good intake system because of the material and you don't have to worry in rainy days. But Injen RD Series still one of the best systems in the market.

Good Luck!

What you guys may not know is the stock inlet for air is the same size as the throttle body opening. This is a good thing and the reason why intakes don't give much gain. Honda really thought this one through.

wow... well i don't mind answering this even though its been covered.

i got my FIPK off ebay for 180 shipped. i think its worth it. sounds cool and helps just a tiny tiny bit IMO. check out the dyno

http://www.kandn.com/dynocharts/57-3513.jpg

gain is only like 4.8 hp

aem V2 is only 5.5

http://www.aempower.com/pdf/dyno/24-...Civic%20Ex.pdf

My area floods alot when it rains so i didnt want to get a cold air. think about that too

Good luck with that. It sure didn't save me gas. It prolly will stay the same, or lose a couple mpg.

I kinda like it except for noise. It's a better sound than most intakes, but still a bit loud. Still, 4hp is better than none. Yeah mpg stayed about the same tho with mostly the same driving habits.
