The V2 for the EP3 isn't a cold air system (even though the V2 systems for most other cars are a CAI design), you get a cold-air intake from AEM where the filter sits in the front bumper but there's a risk of sucking water into the engine through these kits (known as hydrolock, almost always fatal to the engine)

Best filters (no particular order)

GruppeM Ram-air box (there are two kits but the carbon box one if far superior)
Injen CAI
AEM V1 CAI
Mugen airbox
ITG Maxogen
ARC airbox (although I've only seen a picture of this fitted to an american EP3, the kit's designed for the DC5 integra but it should fit the EP3 without much hassle)

I've got a V2 on mine and I believe that the heatsoak issue is blown way out of proportion tbh but I am saving for a GruppeM as it's a better filter, and it'll match the other carbon I've got under the bonnet 3:)
