CAI question about engine flooding in weather
I was told at my local garage that if I put the Injen CAI on my car even with the shield on it, that it would cause my engine water flooding problems since the Intake is in the wheelwell. I live in an area that has all for seasons and this is a daily driver car. Does anyone with any brand of CAI have this problem? Any way around it? Should I even think of a CAI on my daily driver 2002 Celica GTS?

I have never lived in St. Louis, so i don't know what the weather is like. But, if your filter is submerged in water, then, yes, no shield would help you prevent hydro-lock.

I have driven through pooring rain here So. Cal, and I have had no problem with my Injen CAI.

If water is high enough to submerge the filter when it rains in St. Louis, then don't take the chance.

Really BAD reality TV is the reason I stopped watching MTV.

I don't think he or I were worried about total submersion of the CAI smile I believe they were under the impression that wet roads or snow could fly up and cake the filter.

so you're saying with a CAI, you can drive through the pooring rain, w/o a splash guard and be 100% ok? Or was it with a splash guard?
