Hey guys i just purchased a used Comptech Ice Box from a DC5 owner, now my question is this. Is the EP3 an DC5 Ice Box identical? I am having issues having everything lining up so i am wondering if there is a subtle difference between the two Ice Boxes.

The reason i am asking is because the intake tube that goes beneath the car isn't lining up right. Seems to be a little long?

Yes, they are identical. It says at the top of the installation instructions I have:

2002-2003 Honda Civic Si
2002-2003 Acura RSX

The only difference is on the Si, you have to trim your plastic splash panel to fit the inlet tube.

It should be pretty straightforward. The hardest part is "snaking" the snorkel down to mount on the transmission. What is the problem you are running into? I have the installation instructions in .pdf format if you need them (if you don't have instructions). Let me know.
