I've read on the board that Injen is making a SRI for the Tib. Here's the link Where to buy Injen SRI? Started to search the net, but did not find anything. I think AJ (Fixer) can get them. If he hasn't moved he lives close to Injen!

Aluminum Pedals, Motegi DP5 Hyper Black Rims, Tuscani Badges and Sills, Caps on Stockers, Injen CAI, S2000 antenna, Alpine HU, Diamond Audio components, 12 inch JL Audio sub, 300/4 JL amp, 500/1 JL Audio Sub amp, Clear Corners, Chrome Handles, GReddy CB

You can buy a heat shield that may help rain that passes through the front grill from soaking the filter.

The intake filter would need to be submerged in water to cause damage. However, if I get the underspray during the winter months to get rid of salt I shut down the car as I go thru the system (just in case). I also installed the heat shield facing the front of the car as a precaution in heavy rain.

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

I'm not really a fan of BPV's...on the old forum, a member did an experiment; he took a CAI w/ BPV, then submerged the filter in a bucket of water...then, a vacuum was used to simulate the suck of the intake manifold...water still got past the BPV. Essentially, there has to be a BIG volume of water traveling up the pipe to trigger the BPV; if it's only small amounts, it can sneak by.

I have driven in HEAVY downpours and deep snow, and haven't had a problem...just be careful and stay out of deep puddles....cuz lets face it, you can tell when puddle is too deep

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

About the MPG thing... Just because your car is only sucking in more air, doesn't mean that the ECU wouldn't compensate with more fuel using reading from the MAF sensor. It really depends on how the ECU is setup and how sensitive it is. That's the whole point of using MAF setup instead of Speed Density. MAF allow the ECU to adjust according to engine mods via sensor readings where Speed Density has a preprogrammed set of tables.

On the K&N issue... If you gum up your MAF sensor with oil from a K&N filter you jacked up and used too much oil when cleaning it (Don't clean a new one either, cause it's not dirty and is preoiled). I wouldn't waste my money on any other "performance" filter than a K&N. Well, actually I'm cheap and use a paper filter, but that's because I need beer money.

thanks! But I think I may have over-exaggerated the hydrolock problem. For the record, you MUST submerge your car's front wheels in about 8-10 inches of water before you will have a problem. I can think of only a HANDFUL (meaning 2 or 3) people who have hydrolocked their Deltas on this board, and only one that actually cracked his block from it (forget who...). Its VERY HARD to do this. Even TORRENTIAL driving rain will not cause a problem.

All summed up, when it comes to [$$$ per HP], a CAI is the best mod you'll ever do outside of F/I...its almost a mandatory mod.

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

If an SRI makes less power than a CAI.. How comes most supercharger (rippmods sds, ...) solutions have their filter in the engine bay? I have a SRI, but am thinking about CAI - i live in a very hot area.. 30 seconds maximum and my engine bay is an oven.

Talking My Sri

I got my SRI from autozone for about $40 bucks. Being somewhat knowlege about car (my old 85 chevy always something to fix) I needed to get a 3" pipe to connected mine SRI. I do agree all CAI are the same .... its the style .. this also includes the SRI. I just say go what you have or the money to do so. Yes CAI is better then SRI ... but both are better then stock. So whatever your budget is go for wither one (whatever brand).

also here are some pictures from my cardomain website of my SRI I got from autozone and connected it to a 3" stainlesss steel muffler pipe (only stainless steel pipe me and my frinds had around) which is connected to the stock flex pipe.

Its not that one is better than the other, they are different. Our tibs have good low end power. Therefor a CAI is used more by the members because it increases power at the high end. SRI increases power at the low end. Thats the reason why most members use the CAI.

That is the "bomz racing" CAI. There is another intake on E-bay. I would look at that one. I have this one on my car and except for the weld lines in it, it works just fine. Just get a different filter, like a K&N filter. The one they give you sucks.

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

Wouldn't hood spacers or a vented hood alleviate some of the negatives of the SRI. Streets were I live have been known to flood BAD. Their have been times in 12 years of driving around here I've been in water to the top of my wheel well. Yikes.

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

Once the engine is hot can a SRI give less gain than the stock intake or does it always give at least a little gain over the stock setup.

Thanx

It depends on the SRI. If you are referring to SRI that looks like the one above, the gain will decrease as the engine gets hotter, but it should always be better than stock. Now, if you are talking about the Injen SRI made for our cars (pictured here), the gain is equal (if not better) to a CAI.

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

I am thinking about making something that would put the intake directly to the bottom front of the vehicle.. but im not sure if it would hinder more than help since it would increase the lenth of the intake about three feet just to get a "ram air" cold air intake effect. any ideas?

Woo hoo! I just did as i said in the last post and it works like a charm! I have a 4" diameter pipe connected from the filter box extending down and just right of the left fog light.
