That's the eBay CAI you're talking about, or just any CAI?It is my daily also...I have had no issues and (like you stated) as long as you avoid large puddles...you will be fine. It is very well hidden also...it sits behind the front bumper and it has the bottom splash guard (bottom of the bumper) to protect it from water
Yeah, I knew about the different filters. If I went with the eBay CAI, I'd also order a good brand-name filter to go with it. 1-3 horsepower doesn't sound like something I'm willing to pay an additional $250+ for, so I'm thinking I'm going to go with the eBay CAI. Unless I can find a good deal on an Injen SRI sometime in the very near future.That I cant answer, try searching for that one. But IMO, some are made with different materials, different bends, different positons, and the most important...different filters. So yes there is a difference but I would GUESSTIMATE (no flaming) round a few hp differance (beeing 1-3hp diff.)
I found a guy that can get me a brand new AEM SRI for $85 + shipping. Does anyone have any experience with this intake? The only SRI I ever see on here is Injen's. I know AEM makes quality products, but why is Injen's so much more popular?
