two things....

im still confused on this air muffler thing

and not all hondas or 4cyl cars are ricers... 4cyl cars use the cold air intakes because they allow more, cooler, air into the motor..... i have some friends with hondas,nissan,mitsubishi and a few with neons that are pretty impressive
a civic makin almost 250hp n/a, a boosted 240sx makin 400hp, an EVO that with out run a corvette like its nothin, and two neons (srt-4) that make about 350-400hp .... these guys dont have body kits or neon lights or big wings... they pride themselves on havin nice clean lookin cars that haul ass...

not fussin just fixin a common misconception

What's confusing you?

You're right, cars like the ones you describe should not be called ricers. If a car is built to move, and the mods done to it are for function, then it's not a ricer.
A stock Civic with a 5" diameter exhaust that sounds like a go-cart is a different story....

it will come out almost by its self once it has room to move the core support / header panel holds it in by pinching it in with the air box it self so once you have it up and out it will make sense to you! if not some one will be here to help lol

I broke it out with needle nose pliers and tin snips in about 5 min without taking out box. Then a shop vac was necessary.I suggest taking out air box instead. that way you don't break what you want to save. all in all it was an easy mod and you should have no trouble. did you buy the high flow air filter? i did the mod and saw some more response in engine, then bought k&n box air filter and it helped noticably .
