This is the first upgrade to my '99 Civic EX so far. It didn't boost performance as much as I had anticipated but there is an improvement. 1st and 2nd gear were effected the most; it feels a little smoother and slightly more responsive. Otherwise there is less noticeable improvement in higher gears until after about 3700 rpm. Then it really growls.
My only concern with the unit is how close the filter is to the ground, I am paranoid about hitting puddles and such.
If I could do it again i would probably get a short air intake instead, just to play it safe. This is my everyday car so I have to drive it even if it's raining.
