I wonder if anyone has ever put an airhorn in.
Is there room for it?
And which side is the horn on?

horns are on the passenger side behind the bumper hanging from the core support. there are two.
i have one on each side as the IC piping had to go where one was.
as for air horns, i dont know if it'd fit. why do you want one?

I've seen a few kids do this on their Hondas. They had the whole setup located by the gas tank. The horns were off of a train. I think they were electric though.

the placement of the horns depends on the year of the car... some have both on the passenger side, some have one horn on each side of the car...

A train horn setup needs a compressor, tank, air line and the horn... these setups are pretty expensive and not really practical for a car as all the components are large.

The small air horn kits (usually with the red plasitc horns) are much more compact and there is no need for an air tank, as the compressor drives the horns directly. A lot of exotic cars use air horn setups... like ferrari and laborghini... thats where the high pitch sound comes from.

I have a 2001. I was taking off my bumper yesterday and it seemed like there was a horn or something on the drivers side.

very possible... i have a horn on each side on my 01 1.8. My 96 has both horns on the passenger side.

Yeah they have some hilarious videos. I've wanted to do this for awhile but don't really think their is any room to put the horns. Although I have been looking at police sirens, they are rather small and would pretty much anywhere. I'm also looking at putting some strobes in where my city lights are and then one in each of the rear fogs. Just think it would be kinda fun.
