Not sure on this, I haven't installed mine yet, but one is prolly a vacume, the other is maybe a sensor of some sort?

Hmm yeah I would replace that filter right away, but I rather not go with cheap ebay intakes at all. lol
Have you try looking up Fujita intakes?

i have no clue what the other hole on the intake is for. there's only one for my aem v2 (05 civic): the IAT sensor, that's intake air temperature

yea on mine theres only one hole too, look at your stock intake and if there is two sensors/holes, then just put them in your new intake. But remember, someitmes Ebay users just use "universal/generic" pictures for their auctions, not always pictures from your exact application
