Technical Notes:

There’s a reason our Cobra Cold Air Intake Systems is a constant topic of discussion and so highly regarded. Our CNC machined billet aluminum MAF Housing was designed to provide *factory-spec fuel trims (-4% of factory STFT & LTFT) for optimal drivability and performance. The Cobra CAI utilizes a 4" volume from the air filter into the MAF Housing and is available with two different MAF housing choices; a Street housing and a Race housing. Both housings utilizes the factory MAF sensor, but feature two different diameters and profiles. As mentioned above, the Street housing is designed to provide factory-spec fuel trims WITHOUT any tuning whatsoever. The Race housing allows a 50% larger volume of air in comparison to the Street housing, which is why a tune IS required. This larger volume of airflow reduces pumping loss and creates an unrestricted air path to feed the MAF housing with ambient temperature air.

Customers can switch between MAF housings without having to buy another intake system by purchasing our MAF Housing Conversion Kit

Customers can convert to a Short Ram Intake with our Short Ram Intake Conversion Kit

Performance Gains:

  • 15 horsepower and 12 ft/lb torque gains in comparison to stock with Street MAF housing WITHOUT TUNE - Read More Here!
  • 20 horsepower and 15 ft/lb torque gains in comparison to stock with Race MAF housing WITH Race MAF basemap calibration on Hondata and/or KTuner – Read More Here!
  • Larger gains to be seen at higher power levels with custom tuning

Notice how consistent and similar all of the LTFT graphs are. Each graph is within -4 LTFT.

First upgrade

This is the first up grade I did, after reading a ton of material from every platform, this is the one thing almost everyone agreed on that should be first,.. they were not wrong. Makes the engine sound so much better and you can definitely hear the b.o.v. even though it is of the recirculating type. My only issue is, I wish they'd have mentioned and/or put next to the intakes, was the need for a hydro sock thing that covers the airfilter. ( only for cobra) as the airfilter itself, sits quit low and there have been people who've lost power due to sucking in water... that being said, I've driven in heavy downpours with no issue. Avoid deep puddles and drive a little slower and you should be fine.

Dissatisfied

I ordered 2016- 2021 Honda Civic Non- Si 1.5T Cobra Cold Air Intake System and the “stainless steel hardware” is missing. I also ordered 2016- 2021 Honda Civic 1.5T Cobra Cold Air Intake to short ram conversion kit and received nothing from that kit. I’ve heard great reviews of PRL Motorsports but this is something I did not expect.
