Default '06 Si AEM SR installed

I couldn't find any pics of the AEM Short Ram Intake installed on the 06 Si. So I bought it and installed today, it improved the intake sound alot, you can actually hear the intake when its out of the i-VTEC mode and when it gets above 6grand it is really loud. My wife will probably complain about it (she complained about my dual flowmaster exhaust on the SS) but I like the way it sounds and cant really say that I gained any seat of the pants HP, but it did spin second a lot more than usual. Here are the before and after pics.

By the way, I left all the stock cool air ducting from the stock box on there, I figured it would pull some cold air from the fender while it was moving. Should I leave it or pull it all out like the instructions said to do?

Thanks for the complament My04Civic and I think I will end up pulling all of the piping out because the Radiator hose is heating up the pipe alot. Without the stock intake bits and pieces in the wya I should be able to pull the hose down to the mounts and off the pipe. It's kinda bassackwards compared to what I have seen on the older engines. I figured there would be more pipe when I pulled it out of the box.
