http://www.theboostdepot.com/index.p...=726&Itemid=26

they sell a whole kit w/ adaptor, filter & fairing stays

it basically turns the intake plenum 180deg and rams air down it. normally the intake faces backwards and if 0 deg. is the front, the plenum entrance is at about 120deg. the chimera makes almost a full 180 deg turn to feed down the intake. now it faces front at 0 deg.

they're a speed shop i guess, cuz of the 6 bolts supposed to be in the kit, 1 was the wrong length and 2 didn't even come w/ the kit. so i bitched a little, the install really isn't that much harder then the chimera kit, but after running this setup it makes more power by far and is like $115 delivered vs $160ish
is there anything else i need to add to the kit?

tell them you're on hondagrom.net and i think they give you 10% off

make sure to have a 4mm allen key to put on w/

and you take off the charcoal canister, the whole thing. they include a small cap that goes on the intake. the elec connector just ties off to the side, no need to connect and use the white pieces to elongate the orig hoses to the rear
