I have a little problem with the emmissions in north carolina.I bought a ingen cold air intake and durring the installation it stated to remove the pcv pipe, thata what the instructions called it. So later I went to a inspection station and it said i need the pcv "valve" to pass. Is that the same peice? I asked the guy and he said he couldent find on, then he looked on a obdII sticker on the hood and it said it dident have one, then he looked in the big book and it said the 98 civic had one. then all the other guys there said the 98 need one. so if I need it does the CAI have a built in one, or can I put on the pcv valve on with the CAI right before inspection, or do I have to put the stock air box in?what do you guys think, thanks.

they are probably talking about the breather hose, form the o.e.m. intake tube to the valve cover.... don't know why you would need to remove the pcv valve :noway:

it doesn't have one like most other cars and trucks . they are probably talking about the breeather hose. i am suprised that your new intake did not have one. you could run a dummy hose into the connector hose at the throttle body. i also live in NC . drop a line if you need anyother help.
