Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

I noticed more sound, and I think my acceleration has improved.. But im not sure, because I just reached 1,000 miles and haven't really gunned it yet. I don't have any pics because I don't own a digital camera.

Seems to me to be good way to scoop up water in a hard rain at speed, or going thru a deep puddle. Did you think of any precautions there?

Yes, I did. I never floods where I live, and how does ram air cars like some Firebirds, camaros and mustangs (among many others) are able to drive in rain and not worry about hyrdolock?

Good point. Not sure how those intakes are designed. Sure they di something to mitigate possible water entering the system.

How come I haven't seen CAI for a V6 5spd?? I've only seen it for 6spd Is there any difference between the two?

5spd or 6spd same thong. Only difference would be between v6 and i4.

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

where i live, i get rain in the spring and summer and so would a cai with a bpv and a heatshield be enough to prevent any possible hydrolocking. do u guyz think that is the best combination if i was to get a cai?

Just a BPV will have you set unless you drive IN a lake...you will be 100% fine with a BPV unless your WHOLE filter gets submerged and well if you do that then your just dumb to begin with hehe...It rains where I am and I've never had a problem with my CAI (no BPV or anything), rain is fine and stuff, just no submerging your filter.

when u say submerged, do u mean that it is underwater or is it just a big splash that hits the filter?

and is the injen sri pretty equal to a cai, isn't it as far to one corner of the engine bay as possible, could u maybe post a pic of it, thnx

under water. a big splash probably wont cause any problems even without a bpv

Dont drive thru a puddle. Seriously, Ive driven thru rainstorms and had zero issues with my CAI. Unless you drive thru a puddle deep enough to submerge the entire filter, then you are fine. If you it worries you, buy the short ram

Does it matter that the post I replied to was an older one? No it doesnt. There is still discussion about rain and its effect on a CAI. I offered something useful to this thread, whereas you did not. Good day

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

It seems like it would take some serious effort to fully submerge your CAI's filter in a freakin puddle, I mean, you'd be in a puddle (small lake) almost a foot or more deep. If you drive into a foot of water in the first place, you may want to do it in neutral with the engine off, outside, pushing the car

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

Some of you guys are too confident in the rain....then again, it DOES take alot to hydrolock this motor....

The best advice I can give you is to be careful when it's raining...these cars handle like $hit in the rain anyway, so it shouldn't be too hard to take it easy!

Injen's new Short Ram looks great....until you look at the price of course...these guys have no shame in charging a 300% markup since they can claim it goes into R & D and whatnot....same for AEM! Damned manufacturers are worse than your neighborhood crack dealer!

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

Well I figure in the rain try to keep vacuum pressure at the filter down as much as possible, so obviously it would be prudent to not race around in the rain. Basically take it slow, avoid obviously dangerous flows of water that are deep enough to submerge the filter (if its that deep, chances are you shouldn't be driving near it anyway) and don't screw around in the rain. I gotta say though this car handles much better in the rain than my old Mercedes 300E, that thing was tail happy being RWD and torque happy. One rainy season in that car I got the car nice & sideways on the slick stamped concrete outside of a mall... didn't help that I was riding on almost bald tires, ehheh....

FWD cars handle better in the rain than an RWD. Of course a 4WD handles better than all other configs in bad weather, but eh... moral of the story: don't screw around in the rain.

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

Ive taken the stock airbox out and attached an oversize k&n cone filter right on the stock hose before the MAF sensor.(dont even know what kind of car its for, just saw it at the parts store and looked like it would fit). Also fabricated an L shaped metal heat shield on the stock boltholes( hehe he said boltholes) for a little bit of protection against block heat.
Question A: By having such a short distance for air to travel with this setup, will there be any negative effects on the engine, i.e. burnt valves, MAF Sensor etc.?
Question B: I want to further this idea by adding a hood scoop to fit directly over the filter, anyone have any ideas as to where a reputable fabrication shop may be to perform this kind of mod, or is there a hood replacement specifically for 04, tiburon with this concept in mind?

haha your signature says that you have a CAI

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

Questions:
#1 - Why would anyone NOT get a BPV? It seems to me that it would be better to have at least some protection against hydrolock than none. Is there something I am missing? Does this BPV cost an arm and a leg?

#2 - When dealing with a new throttle body. The one I am looking at is a 60mm throttle body, will i have any problem attaching my CAI to this?

#3 - off topic. In reference to the above throttle body question, there are a few out there, one has no fluid hose mounts, one has no cruise control mount, it seems like all the aftermarket ones i've seen are missing key components. Anyone know of a good one?

Thanks,
