1996-2000 Honda Civic w/ B18C1 Hybrid System Intake Installation Instructions

October 30th, 2009 · No Comments

The AEM Hybrid Intake System is the result of extensive development on a wide variety of hybrid cars. Each system is engineered for the particular application. The AEM Hybrid Intake System differs from all others in several ways. AEM has conducted extensive inlet air temperature studies and we have seen temperature reductions of up to 50 degrees by pulling air from outside of the engine compartment. The air mass flow to the engine is increased because of the increased airflow and reduced inlet temperature, which translates to more power. The AEM Hybrid Intake Systems come with complete instructions for ease of installation.

Be sure to test the heaters to make sure they work properly before going to the trouble of installing them. I just connected them to my battery terminals to do a quick test. This should only take a couple minutes and is a worthwhile precaution. Additionally, I would recommend getting some upholstery hog rings and hog pliers. These can be purchased as a package from JCWhitney for about $4-5.
