bypass valve doesnt even do anything... save your money.

and as long as the Intake isnt submetged you'll be fine.

well, the bypass might help on those long ass CAIs that those civics has...but our CAI is short...it doesnt have enough time for the bypass to work to avoid suckin up water.

I would get one, there's no such thing as being too safe.

Yes depending on the weather, for example when it's cold outside, they are the same, but when it's hotter outside, the CAI is obviously going to deliver better, cooler air.

BTW isin't this thread in the wrong forum? spineyes
