bryanjw82 ive had it replaced since blkzx3, that was a while ago, does letting off the gas when hitting deep puddles help reduce the chances of pulling up water? I did and also dropped rpm's alot while going through it

No, the guy who started this thread said he blew up his SVt and ford wouldn't cover it because they declared the cause was "abuse".

Unless you frequently drive your car through standing water deep enough to just about cover your foglight, you will probably never hydrolock your engine. Here in Houston, water gets damn deep when it rains. I've had no problems. I do recommend a shield however. You can make one very easily or buy one.

daSVT i have the K&N aircharger and the gains are great. I think is just as good if not better than the cai. No worries of water, same great power and yes mine does make the hisssing sound.

probably because most people can't tell the difference between 3 horses. the cai is obviously much more power. cold=power.
