I like the CAI, it has a deeper sound on a celicak don't forget to get a bypass valve, they are MUCH needed on a CAI.

bypass valves dont work, dont get it, use the search and see for yourself, but the heat shield/splash thing will give better Performance and protect it from water splashes thumbsup thumbsup

^^ before i get confused you are talkin about the Injen heat shield splash guard right that you put on your AEM? or if at least its metal because what it does is it deflects heat from the engine which keeps the air thats goin in cooler

its very unlikely for your car to hydro-lock but you can get CELs if water goes in but your car will most likely not hydro-lock unless you put your CAI underwater, its just rumors grin

CEL = check engine light on your gauges, it means the ECU has dectected an error/malfunction with your car.. you have to reset your ECU to turn it off.. search the forum for steps on resetting your ECU its easy if you ever get CEL
