The intake for the LX, CX and DX will not fit your HX. Because the throttle body is positioned differently in the LX, CX and DX. Just look for a V2 for a 96-98 EX. Because any intake for the EX is interchangable with the HX. Here is one from Ebay that I found

you need to buy one for a 96-00 ex

on a side note the aem is not worth the money you will pay for it

$250 for an intake is steep in the first place, and for the maybe 1 or 2 hp you gain over a generic intake pipe with a good filter it's not worth it. You could just get an Aem short ram for around $100. But , the route most people go now-a-days is just getting a regular intake pipe off ebay and then getting a quality filter.

^ + 1/2

If you are gunna stay NA get the Ingen CAI, but if you plan on boostin it buy a cheap tube off of ebay and put a good filter on the end of it.
