^Really is a short ram by definition even with a heat shield, atleast by honda-tech standards. Though the maf thing is nice to know about if your really going for it and i keep that page bookmarked aswell just incase.
What I did was remove the rubber tube, and intake silencer. Cut a piece of my 2.5" integra cai to fit from the throttle body to the air box(yes it has been proven by scan gauge here to raise intake temps over stock rubber tubing) even with the plastic from the fan shroud as a heat barrier, ran a new $14 wix element, jb welded a 3" plastic spectre adapter in place of the stock silencer, and routed a 3" spectre flex tube with a 4-3" pvc adapter stuck in place of my foglightless 08 front bumper plug.
In all honesty even with "ram air" I notice no difference in either power or throttle response(even if it thought i had i wouldnt admit to a butt dyno) which is what i expected since i didnt install a pwjdm whale pen!s or tune for it. It also doesnt sound any different then just a silencer delete with 2.5" tube, which sounds worlds better then a 4cyl with a stock intake and a muffler.
