Ok, some local club guys in daytona and i got into an arguement about this -
I have the Injen CAI
, and living in florida there is ALOT of rain. I was really concerend about the hydrolocking issue as well, so i thought i would put the bypass valve on also. When i actually got to that point i realized that the only good place to put the valve was so far down the pipe that it was basicaly at the same level as the filter.
The sign idea is good, but you can avoid doing that all together. just be very careful when you cut the holes for the pipes to pass though in the wheel well. if you do it right you can get the holes so that they pretty much make a seal around the CAI
piping. i have had mine in for well over a year now and no problems what so ever. don't bother with the Short Ram
, the gains you get out of it aren't worth the money. deffiantely go with a full CAI
