Hey everyone,
Does anyone know what the best cold air intake for a 1997 supercharged prelude would be? I have been looking at the AEM Air V2 intake, but it dosent come with a heat shield. It looks good, any users, any other ideas?

Thankyou very much

A DIY is the best. K&N or AEM DryFlow filter on a cheap pipe with heat reducing paint on the tube. All the same gains as the expensive stuff, just 1/3 to 1/2 of the price. Then if you are worried more about heat soak, wrap the tube as well. Then modify the stock air box to fit the pipe, and use that heat resistant lining. Drill some holes in the upper passenger side of the air box lid for more air flow. Modify the piece behind the front bumper as more of a scoop to force more air up into the air box. And there you go. Cheap and simple. Minimal heat soak, no need to worry about sucking up water since the filter is in the engine bay, and you will get some impressive gains. It's like an uber Ice Box for cheap. It will take roughly 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours to do everything, most of the time is to let the paint dry.

The one that came on the truck when it was brand new. All you need to do is slide in a direct replacement K&N air cleaner element in the standard plastic cold air box.

Aftermarket cold air intakes have no water drains. Your intake does between the two fenders.
