Hmmmm.... I remember seeing the Mugen Eliminator a few years back, looked pretty slick.

Also saw another Fit with a TSX engine in it. That one definitely needed the CAI.

No just sarcasm, I was actually having a pretty good laugh. Its just annoying the FIT and most other hatchbacks are completey ripping of the look of the Golf/rabbit. Why not buy a GTI and mod it I mean really a CAI in a 115 HP Hibrid. IDK

Because a GTI is 10k more than a Fit.

The fail is strong with this thread.

Um, no. Honda is not ripping off VWs design. Nor is anyone else in the category. Other than being hatches, there are no other similarities.

The Fit isn't a hybrid.

CAI's can not only add a few hp, they also increase throttle response and mpg. Why not install one.

The Fit is a great example of form follow function.
An extremely versatile and useful design at a bare bones price.
The Fit is in more need of the possible couple of horsepower gain that a CAI may net than the GTI is.

I had a fit before this. GD3 body style. Really a fun, light peppy car. You could just zip around and about at around 40mpg. Kraftwerks makes an impressive kit for them as well. And the space inside is cavernous - Just saying.
