Honda Civic SI 2.4L & Acura ILX 2.4L [#69-1019TS] Air Intake Installation


This K&N air intake system is designed to
increase power and acceleration by reducing
restriction in the intake path. K&N’s 69-1019TS
air intake fits 2012 Honda Civic SI models
with 2.4 liter engines. It comes with K&N’s
famous million mile limited warranty. The
69-1019TS air intake is not legal for highway
use in California or other states adopting
California emission standards. Check KNFilters.com
for an up to date list of models this air
intake fits and for a list of other CARB adoption
states.
K&N power testing showed an estimated power
gain of 10.5 horsepower at 5400 RPM with the
69-1019TS air intake installed on a 2012 Honda
Civic SI with a 2.4 liter engine. Actual results
will vary depending on the condition of the
vehicle, mileage, weather and other variables.
With the air intake installed we ran the vehicle
on the dyno to test the sound comparison verses
the stock intake.
The intake system includes components that
have been designed or matched to the needs
of these vehicles to produce a safe horsepower
increase. Detailed installation instructions
are included with this kit.
The tools needed for this install are shown.
Turn off the ignition and disconnect the negative
battery cable. Be sure the engine is completely
cool before beginning the removal of the stock
components. Be sure the vehicle is completely
cool before beginning intake kit installation.

connection and unhook the wiring harness from
the upper air box.
Release the spring clamp securing the crank
case vent tube into the intake tube and then

  1. Is this CARB legal in California? I know the first 5 years there is no Smog or STAR check, but after that time period is this a legal intake?

  2. Hey guys, are you planning on putting out a video for the 2013+ Honda Accord? Haven't been able to find any videos.

  3. I'm sorry, but any intake that required "cutting" etc… is NOT worth the installation. K&N should have taken the time to do this so we don't have to…….

  4. Hey guys what is the coolant bypass hose being replaced for, what's wrong with the factory one? I just purchased/ordered mine today!! Love the VTEC crossover sound this thing gives and I like the overall design. 🙂

  5. Void Warranty and mess up a great car…only 10hp more for all of that work
    Yea oh it better to put an better exhaust system and pro install
    Honda made it very hard to tune this model so just enjoy it and rev to 7400rpm

  6. This is a CARB street legal kit for the following appications at the link below:

  7. Would this fit a 2010 Honda CR-V?? It has the k24z6 engine…. But I'm not sure the diameter of the throttle body. Any opinions?

  8. is legal in california now? cause i bought mine 2013, that time is illegal! if it does legel where can i get the carb sticker exception.

  9. I just finished installing this on my 2013 Civic Si. You guys didn't say how much of a pain those hoses were . Still, it was worth it. My car sounds amazing when the V-Tech kicks in! Like this: vroooOOOOOOMMMMM, vroooOOOOOOOMMMM!

  10. Hello K&N team I just installed this intake system into my 2015 civic Si last night I wanted to say that this kit is amazing I love the sound that the engine makes when I step on the gas specially after passing the 4000 RPMS and when V-TECH kicks in and I can tottaly feel the HP gain . The only problem I have is the car idlles a little bit too much not sure if that is normal I can defiantly feel and see it more when I go from any gear to neutral the RPM nidlle goes up and down even that am not stepping on the gas peddles it takes maybe few seconds to it actually stops completely. Any ideas what the problem may be or if this is normal?
