yeah then you can get tireflies and apc stickers, and trade your rims in for some spinner hubcaps.

this guy must be an idiot. yea you need a new hood if you intstall the short ram intake. its because the air coming from your intake won't be at cold and it affects the engine. you may lose horsepower..loser...lol

Speed holes!


J/K. Functional hood scoops are for cars like the Mustang Mach 1, in which the scoop is connected directly to the throttle body in a "ram air" system. The Subaru WRX also has a functional hood scoop, but it is used to cool a top-mounted intercooler. Having a hood scoop with short ram does not seem like bad idea, since one of the problems with short ram systems is that they draw warm air from the engine bay. However, it would look funny on a Civic and the drag would outweigh the benefit. A better thing to do is connect a pipe from the throttle body to a fog light hole, but then you wouldn't be able to drive in the rain.

I'm POSITIVE you dont need a new hood buddy, but i think the short ram is the way to go if ur car is daily driven, the cold air is a hazard in the rain, and the only option on that is a bypass valve that'll rob u of more ponies.
