Default I have an 2004 honda civic sedan ex. Is it a good thing to add a cold air intake to the car?

Does adding a cold air intake to a automatic civic do any good for it so I won't lose my money?

You are going to pay $200 for something that might give you 3-5 horsepower at the most. Nothing you will notice. By itself, it is a waste of money. I would not suggest it unless you plan on spending several thousand dollars upgrading the car. Keep in mind that is not a performance car. It was designed as a reliable, comfortable, cheap, fuel efficient family car. Don't let the Fast and the Furious fool you.

do not put a cold air intake in. just replace your factory filter with a high flow filter. when you add extra piping you are making the air travel at a longer distance, you are losing pressure inside of the piping creating a loss of horsepower. not to mention where exactly are you getting cold air from. it should be called a cooler air intake. use your money to do more positive things to your car. like royal purple oil, pulse plugs, k&n air filter, helix power tower throttle body spacer (if available),and a good programmer. with that combination you will increase hp by about 15-30 and mpg 5-10. i have done this exact set up to my 2002 v6 firebird. the results were very noticeable. i added an exhaust for better air flow. but , i wouldn't suggest spending money on an exhaust system for a honda civic. maybe an axel back system.
