Yeah I would say use the search button but don't know how much info you'll get cause the site went down a little bit ago!
Only because this thread has been BEATEN to death!
Didn't know AEM made a CAI for the GAGTs' but my advice to you is to either buy the civic cai or the one form apoc.com unless your skilled enough to make your own then buy the biggest cone you can that will actually fit in your fender well!! Good luck!!

AEM doesn't make CAIs, but they make the filter that will fit onto the Civic/FDP Cai.

The AEM gives you better performance in the lower RPMs than K&N...but K&N gives you a little bit more in the upper RPMs. From what I have heard from some people...they actually like the AEMs feel through the RPMs a little more. :)

I'm getting an AEM to see how it works. Course I need to get my FDP Cai first. :rolleyes:

The AEM filters have an airhorn which will smooth out airflow and such, giving crisper throttle response I believe. Damn good design! S and B makes a similar design, but allows you to move the airhorn inside the filter so you can tune it for your car, which is even sweeter.

You can't go wrong with an S&B Powerstack filter. It has the inverted end. It is so nice. I had a guy today ask me if my car was a turbo because he heard the wistle of my filter. So that is sweet in my book. Now i just have to get the Civic Short Ram put on and it will be killer.

I dont know if you know Pucci... but that wistle is not from the
filter, its from the air rushing past the throttle body. But either
way... it sounds awesome!

Hey, I've been using the search tool, but haven't found an answer to this: my g/f just got an '02 GAGT1 and wants a cone filter; what size flange does she need to attach it to the MAF? 3" or 3.5"? I can't recall. Thanks!
