in your picture you used the stock hose. How didi you do that isn't it too short. Where did you get that rubber hose to extend it from?

Don't relocate your battery. Get that piece of crap intake out of your car. I would return it to where you bought it from. It says a lot when they make a part that won't even let you close your hood.
:stupid

why would you relocate the battery for an intake :confused. there is either one or both of two things wrong with this situation...
1) you didn't install it right.
2) you got the wrong model for your car.

Yeah you definitely got the wrong one. Sounds like you got one for a 92+.

If you can return it, do it. And get the appropriate intake for your model Civic.

And if you want to know the difference between a CAI and an SRI check the Civic stickies, primarily the one that says "look here first".
