So I was changing the coolant hoses and because it was so hot here in FL, I decided to finish it tomorrow (today), and... it seems I forgot which hose goes where, No luck searching, can anyone help?

Sure I'll post one tomorrow, but it should be the 2 hoses right under the throttle body. They are less than a ft length each.

Did you figure it out? If not, go to bernardiparts.com, enter your car info, and navigate to engine components, then throttle body parts. There you will see a nice diagram of all the breather hoses and where each goes.

Alright so I connected the tube closest to engine on the throttle body to the tube right under it (the one pointing up), then obviously connected the remaining two together. Is this correct? Car seems to work fine without overheating or anything.

By the way, why are coolant hoses routed to the throttle body? Wouldn't that warm-up the intake air? I was under the impression that that's undesirable (cooler air being more dense).

In cold climates the throttle body needs to be warmed to prevent icing on the blade. If you live in a hot climate (like I do) then you can bypass the coolant flow (which I did).

^^ , it is not recommended to do coolant bypass unless you are sure it will neve.r freeze where you live. Even Florida got near freezing point years ago.

The same goes for radiator, feel free to run straight up water, but don't forget to change it when it's about to freeze or you'll crack the radiator.

+1 As both of the Accords are now in FL, I thought about it, but in the end it made no sense. Why mess with something that isn't broken and the speed limits are so low around here it makes no difference the temp of the air. Granted on 75 the limit is 70, but it's not like a CAI would benefit me there.

Also, CAI on Accords are just plain silly without an exhaust upgrade and a tune, and then I'd do it only to increase the volume of air (IMO).
