Shouldnt at all but some ealers are retarded and will say it does so all you do is change your intake and when you need the car serviced just put the stock back on. it is a quick esy install so there should be no issues

Jaki-































It could. But you need to see if the Honda made one available from their parts department.































I have a 2006 Scion Xb and a 2007 Tc, both equipped with Cold Air Intake Systems. They were both offered this as an option from the factory, so I had them installed.































But lets have a little chat here about them.































Cold Air Intakes will not increase your fuel efficency nor milage. They are about increasing the intake systems volumetric efficency. This does not equate to better milage.































What you are doing is relocating where the engine gets its air from. As air heats up, it looses its oxygen density. The hotter the air, the less oxygen it has available to be mixed with your fuel. So we relocate the air pick-up to a location outside the engine compartment where the ambient temprature is cooler. Hence denser oxygen charge.































Here is what is happening so you understand.































There are several sensors in today's computer controlled vehicles that control, mixture, fuel flow, air flow, emissions and over all engine power.































The sensors that are effected by the installation of the Cold Air Intake are the Mass Airflow Sensor, Air Inlet Temprature Sensor, and Manifold Absolute Presssure Sensor, (MAF, AIT, MAP Sensors).































The MAF as its name imples measures the amount of incoming air. The AIT measures the temprature of the incoming air. The MAP measures manifold pressure for density. All of these send a signal to the computer telling it how much fuel to spray out of the injectors to compensate for the air charge.































The computer is always trying to mantain a 14.7:1 air/fuel mixture ratio. This would be 14.7 parts air to 1 part fuel. By increasing the amount of fuel, we reduce the amount of air, making the mixture rich. By reducing the amount of fuel, we increase the amount of air making the mixture lean.































What the Cold Air Intake does is trick the sensors into allowing more fuel to be mixed into the air charge before entering your cylinders to be burned. Hence your increase in horsepower.































But do not expect a drastic increase either. Most Cold Air Intake Systems only increase the horsepower 6 to 10 horses.































To get the complete benefit, you are going to need to chage your exhaust system too, but again its what you are willing to sacrafice at the pump.































Personally at $4.00+ per gallon, I am considering replacing the stock air-cleaner boxes on both of my vehicles.































The only tips I can give you are to keep your tires properly inflated, keep your oil changed, keep the vehicle properly serviced, and do the speed limits.































Other than that, enjoy your new car!

It shouldnt void the warranty, but call the dealership you bought it from and ask, sometimes when you do work to your own car they void it,sometimes you need it installed by a professional with a receipt saying it was done by a Tech. But some dealers do not mind if you install smaller things like that on there. Also a cold air intake is a great start its usually the first upgrade you should do to your car. You can get 8-15 horsepower depending,your motor will breathe alot better and you will get a little better gas mileage. I suggest K&N or AEM.
