I take it you are not in the US smile.gif I would say for that much money, it's not worth it. In the US we can get the Accord CAI for a lot less and that is for the 2.0 engine. I don't know how it would work with the 1.6.

I currently have an eBay SRI on my 2003, thinking about adding some piping to change to a CAI, but not sure if it will fit between the battery and fuse box. Does anyone know what size piping will fit?

2.5-2.75 should fit the fender opening. or you can grind out the opening.

if you want to spend the money($80-$100) an A'pexi power intake filter is the best out there IMHO.
DCsports makes a psuedo copycat $45.

if you do a true CAI in the fender please invest in bypass valve and prefilter (prefilter doesnt impede air flow )

an additinal option is to get a filter with inner cone filter and cold air kit which is a center peice which locks into center filter, a flex hose and a fender mount which you bolt to opening and attach flex hose to

Oh no, I'm so sorry... the correct answer is The Moops.

The packaging clearly stated '100'. I'm short ONE luft balloon.

Great write up on the CAI... Been thinking ordering a intake. Now I might have to.

They also sell hydroshields for CAI filters. It might be worth a little peace of mind and shouldn't impede airflow.
