Salam all.i just wanted to share my experience with after market intake whihc i used on my honda fit hybrid.
the reason why i imported is becuase this car uses oil bases filter whihc is rather very expensive.Rs4500 per filter.you can use normal cheap ones but i am talking about honda recommendations.As company says to change it after 10,000 Km so i thought i will have to chnage it after 2 oil changes.but
even after 1st oil change it was so dirty.so i thought instread of buying 4500 Rs filter every oil change why not import a K&N filter which is washable and reusable and is for life time.
so i imported and an after market intake also.costed me RS 27000.Its USA based company HPS short Ram intake with K&N oil filter but i did one mistake.as there was no specific filter for hybrid so i imported the filter of normal Honda fit and thought it will work.
it did fit accurately but the ECU showed CHECK engine light after few runs. i reset the ecu many times but again after some time error comes. with scannenr the code was"too rich air fuel mixture"
So my advice that modern Honda ECU are very smart.even a small change in air flow rate etc and they will throw a yellow light at you.
So my advice untill you are importing exact model part for your car dont risk it.or use some tuning soluton for your new bolt ons.
I have now imported AEM-FIC for tuning and a turbo kit for my fit.so for me it wont trouble any more fo me.
but you people do watch it when importing after market engine parts especially performance parts
