Should i go CAI or SR

living up here in norcal i'm hesitant in getting a CAI for fear of hydrolocking. i am aware that you would need to submerge the filter completely but the occasional torrid rainy weather up here causes some flooding.

i want the best performance with torque so AEM would be my 1st choice.

any advice?

get a new AEM CAI so you can get a bypass valve

I've driven through pouring rain with my CAI. No problem at all.

CAI and cover of the wet spots through the splash guard. Consider also buying a shield for the cone filter.

how do i get or make a splash guard? i've also never seen a "shield" for the cone (like the Injen heat shield?)

i also have a slight dilemma. my co-worker has connections up the wazoo and instead of AEM he has a contact with Injen for an Intake. the guy is our auto sound guru and has more money than i dare to ask (he owns a tricked out vishnu wrx still being upgraded, a bmw m5 dinan and neuspeed audi s6).

if i went with Injen i'm sure i could get it for dealer cost.

decisions, decisions...

i like AEM CAI just get the by-pass valve so ur fear of hydrolocking will be gone... but if you can get a real good price on the Injen get it Injen and AEM r close to the same

Injen has a splash guard for the CAI.
