Cold Air Intake Recommendation for a 2008 Honda Ridgeline

Question:

Would you recommend the dry or oil filtration system? How long would the typical installation take? What kind of HP gain would I experience? I have a Honda Ridgeline- 2008. Thx

Expert Reply:

If you drive your 2008 Honda Ridgeline mostly on paved roads, I would recommend going with the Airaid Cold Air Intake System with Oil-Based Filter, # AR530-202. With the oil-type filter, it is recommended to clean and re-oil every 25,000 to 30,000 miles. Oiled filters allow for the greatest amount of airflow.

If you drive on paved and semi-dusty roads, then I recommend going with the Airaid Cold Air Intake System with Dry Filter, # AR531-202. The dry filter has the same maintenance schedule as the oil filter with the exception that it does not have to be oiled.

Installation for either intake is not very complicated which you can see. You will need to remove 2 bolts, remove the stock intake, loosen another bolt, and position and install the new intake. Based on the instructions I would say it should not take more than an hour tops.

In terms of horsepower and gains you are looking at up to 7 additional ponies.
