Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

I am also thinking about a SRI before the CAI, But I drive about 400 miles everyday so I would like to know if the SRI is going to be ok once the car gets hot.

No bypass necessary w/an SRI...Injen or other (like in the link you supplied in your other thread). An intake will not really affect gas mileage, though it does give you a little increase in performance (although the sound improvement is its greatest attribute). I don't know whether you have AUTO, 5spd, or 6spd, but in the case of a 6spd where 80mph = 3400 RPM, the benefits of the intake would be more power/better acceleration for highway passing situations.

Bottom line. You basically can't go wrong w/an SRI, with the nicest SRI available being Injen. It's the CAI that can be a bit un-nerving when driving in rainy/snowy conditions.

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

I will put about 17-20k miles on my car a year, a lot of highway miles. Now I'm all for N/A performance and would like to get every hp out of my car. Even after reading this whole forum I'm still a little undecided on the CAI or SRI. I'm leaning CAI because of the long drive times but I live in Wisconsin and have never driven this car in the snow. I had a 97 Honda del sol with a V2 intake and never had a any problems with hydrolock in hard rain. But I never drove it in the winter; deep snow a few times a year. What I'm trying to ask before I tell you more or my life story is does anyone have a CAI, drive as much as I do, and through similar wheather, and stay problem free? Thanks. Oh, will there be any problems with a damp filter over a long drive time?

Anyone ever tried to place dry ice in the stock air filter or even the CAI?

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

Anyone have any opinion on this? I live in Monterey and it gets really damp air. It's almost like a rain but not quite...it's like a really wet fog. You're clothes actually get wet. Does anyone have any experiance with this and a CAI?

dry ice is CO2 (carbon dioxide) in a solid form. CO2 will smother fires (and stop combustion) so why would you want to put that into you intake?

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

where is the cheapest place to buy an Injen SRI?

I drive mostly around town with the occasional trip in the highway but I dont want to risk hydrolock

The fall, winter, and spring is way too wet here

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

Ask r100s for a price quote. He has the best price. I ordered the injen CAI for my brothers tib from him. He will responded via pm quickly.

Location of Piping/Filter

OK, so I've got a MAF sensor in the tubing on the stock setup (2005 V6). The CAI, purchased from ebay, has 2 tubes and 4 blue rubber sleeves. Is it correct, that 1 blue sleeve connects the piping to the intake itself and the other then goes between the MAF and the other tube ends ?

Also, I'm not sure where the filter 'end' goes as I've got a tranny down there. Folks talk about Hydrolock, yet I don't see how it can fit down there ?

Any V6 folks got a picture or something

Thanks !
Robert

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

follow your stock tubing to the air filter box...then on that near the fender side there's a snorkel that comes off and goes through a hole down into the fender right in front of the wheel. The filter side should go down through that hole I believe.

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

You have an 05 like I do, there is a hole to the right behind your driver side headlight. Get out your dremel or pliers (it works) and get that hole big enough to get the tubeing down without rubbing the edges. Email me this name at yahoo and I can give you pics no prob

well theres a lot of places you can go to find a sri it just depends on what kind of intake brand or if you want something cheap with no brand you can go to ebay and order one there but if you choose to do that, make sure everything fits right or you would just be screwed.. you can also look at the sponosor sites on nt and there are a couple of sites where you can order from them too. i just ordered my sri from boostology from the injen product group buy and he has it for a second batch before the sale ends. its pretty cheap and service is good too. you might want to hurry up before it is over!

Re: The Definitive CAI Explanation Thread

ok, if you even THINK you might have issues with your CAI and puddles...DON'T GET IT! Stick with a SRI, Second, if you really don't want to listen to what i just said, AEM makes a bypass valve that will keep your CAI from turning into a straw. It basically puts a hole in the CAI so if theres any sort of obstruction at the beginning of the tube, then it'll bypass to this. I've seen a video of this being in a fish tank and working, so I'd say its a good bet it'll work for you.
Finally, where the CAI end up on the V6 tibs, is kinda in its own protective box anyways. No water gets in there from splashing. However I don't know if it's high enough to clear your issues.

Perhaps it'd be best for you to look into a boat...

hope this helps
