I want to first start off this review by say THANK YOU! To Greg from Go-AutoWorks. Their customer service was fantastic :D

The product came in a large box filled with packaging peanuts and each piece was individually wrapped with bubble wrap. This protected the finish of the CAI, which looks pretty sweet

This install was a two stage ordeal, the first time the piping was shipped it was setup for a 5th gen civic, while it is similar to the 6th gen, the front part of the subframe is different and it caused a small issue with fitment as shown here


Here it is to close to the subframe to add a filter (I tried numerous positions but couldn't get it far enough away from the frame to add filter)


With these pictures I emailed Greg with the information and he responded quickly and sent me a FedEX voucher to send it back to him to be corrected, he was professional and took full responsibility to make this right for me :). Within a week I got the package back with a fix, put it back on the car and presto:


A bend was added to the end of the tubing, allowed for a perfect fit and the filter fits very nicely inside the area behind the bumper and in front of the wheel well. Picture of final install


Here is a before picture to give an idea:


Here is a picture of it pushed to the throttle body, the clamps that came with the kit were fabulous. Good silicone tubing and solid stainless steel clamps:


Overall - 5 out of 5 stars. The CAI is top notch quality, sounds great and the fitment is perfect. The customer service was outstanding, if all their products are this quality, I would recommend them without question, but the customer service is the best I've had in this industry for some time. Thanks again!

I was thinking about getting a SRI, but my last civic had a CAI, and I liked the added mid range torque, this is no exception. I am happy to report that it feels like it is no longer choking on lack of air in the higher revs :lol:

In the past, my CAI and intercooler piping woud rattle in the hole..

SO, take a piece of vac tubing and slit down the middle and slide around the hole.
Now it wont damage intake and keep rattle noise to a minimum.


I also did this for my mishi rad thats close to rad support.

I damn near rubbed a hole through my cai on my hyundai before I caught it and put a rubber seal around the hole.

Yep, I try to do business with Go-Autoworks whenever I can. I ordered a set of piston rings late last week. They came yesterday and I was able to get them in today and start up my car!

I have his Street Kit turbo system and will most likely bug him for a filter/pre-turbo piping system soon!

Good looking CAI!

the CAI doesn't move around all that much (maybe 1/16 an inch it either direction) and I have about 1/2 inch clearance all aroun...but this is a great idea to clean up that area a little :D

I will do it this weekend :D...thanks for the idea

A buddy of mine as a full turbo kit from Greg on his EK sedan. I did 100% of the installation of the kit, and the kit fit FLAWLESSLY. If I had the extra cash, I'd grab an intake for myself. I just can't justify spending $200 on an INTAKE. lol

Its less expensive than an AEM intake, and from personal experience better quality :D (had one on my 2001 civic, didn't hold up very well when the welding on the intake to bracket broke)

First and foremost, thank you for your purchase and your honest review. Most of all, thank you for how you handled the situation.

Thank you also for the info; which has led to a permanent design change.

Thanks, everyone for the positive feedback; we appreciate it.
You are welcome :D

I'm very happy that I could be of some use...if you ever need a guinea pig for 6th gen test fitting let me know :)

I'd never spend money on an AEM intake anyways. I have one, but it was given to me for free. IMO, eBay intakes are better than AEM's.
