Well, I loaned my '99 Accord (4-cyl, MT) to my cousine, and she hit corner of the wall...

I can take care of the bamper myself (this car if for commuting to train station mostly..), but unfortunately she also spit air box in two peices. One peice is still connected to pipe that connects to air filter, another one is on the shelf in my garage...

I was wondering if it is possible to replace just the box? Or do I need to replace everything, including pipe?

Thanks in advance.

And yes, if we talk CPU's, then I am on the same page, but if we talk RPM's..... :bash

I was thinking the same

But I want something that is street legal - I do not want anything that breaks the law...

Can anyone propose me something?

Oh, and I also do not want to pay $50 shipping and handling fee, which is a rip off :bash

you can just put a K&N cone filter on the end or you can buy and injen or aem short ram intake, they are carb legal with stickers and whatnot on them.

try ebay or the junk yard, im sure you will find the part you are looking for, if not then yeah after market intake isnt a bad investment. gives you better gas milage too. and they are street legal. but just try a junk yard or ebay for the box its self.
