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

I love this intake. It was so easy to install. It makes so many woosh noises now and I love it! Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to put on on their civic.

Defiantly worth it!

I installed it on my 2020 hatchback sport touring and the sound and slight performance gain is just incredible! I already had a BOV installed beforehand so with the cold air on now it’s sounds even better. Installing was a bit of work but nothing too hard, mainly just rearranging some things to get it to fit.
