Default scoop for my CAI

well I've searched and I can't seem to find anything. I'm looking for some kind of funnel or scoop that will force air directly onto my cold air intake filter. I did find some guy with a del sol but I don't think the scoop he made will force enough air onto the filter to make a noticeable difference. And I don't wanna ghetto rig it, I'm looking for something professionally manufactured, something kinda like this but for a 98 civic ex coupe:


thanks for the help guys.

why don't you just buy this one and modify it to fit your car?
looks like a J's racing duct

The 96-98 civics didn't have any openings, vents, or fog light holes there so it might be hard to find something like that for your year.

thats the point. any car with a scoop of any sort, gets maximum power under high force speeds.

my thoughts exactly, if you're looking to get more intake on track day, duct tape a subwoofer box port to your intake and take the headlight out.

Hey, if you want to buy one then do it. Do I think it will help your car? No.
