    Air intake questions on a f22a4 stock tune with exhaust

    Okay i know this is has been talked about often but i just got a few quick questions about a air intake on a f22a4. I am putting a megan racing exhaust and “high flow” magnaflow cat on the car. The f22a already had tube headers on it but to get to the question i have is it a good idea to run a cai or short ram intake on a f22a4 with a stock ecu without a tune? will it make the engine run lean? Is it even worth running a cai or short ram without a tune or should i just stick to the stock intake? I am thinking about putting in the p06 a6 cam and h23a intake man like the one sticky form was talking about. I’m not really looking to go super fast i just want the engine to sound good , feel good and run it’s best without a major overhaul at the moment. if that makes sense. I got more plans for the future of either a n/a build or just a h22a swap. I went to college for auto mechs in 2015 but we did more on obd2 stuff and not much on obd1 since most old cars were already obd2 at that time. So i am still learning about obd1 and it seems that they arn’t quite as picky as obd2 is. Any help is highly appreciated.

    You will be fine with running either. The stock ecu will correct the fuel accordingly (no pun intended). I ran a CAI for a while with no issue. Just don’t drive through water. A SRI is fine as well. Honestly neither do a whole lot for the engine except make it sound gnarly. But you have a good plan set it sounds like.

      Thank you for the reply! Okay that is nice to have a solid answer on knowing if the ecu can correct itself. I plan on buying a red aem short ram intake then when i get paid Thursday. I worry to much about sucking up water with a cai on a daily. I don’t expect much hp gain at all but i like the deep tone they give. Heck even 1 to 2 hp is nice when the car only has around 130hp at the crank. The sri is 150ish on carid atm so its not like its super pricey. I just wanted to make sure i wasn’t going to run lean. Did a sri on my 2015 civic si before i sold it and it ran like sh%t even with a hondata basemap. I got a weapon r though and wasnt very impressed with it would have been better off getting a different brand but i ended up just putting the stock back on cause i sold it to my mom when i got the 2018 civic si that i recently let go back on lease because i needed a bigger car for the family and got a 2011 rx350 and a 2004 crv for simi off roading cause i live in wyo and good places=rough roads often.

                Looks good!
                short ram was a good choice. I went with a cold air intake, and I always regretted hacking up my engine bay to fit it.
