ACHRO Thank you!

sailor MkI has an undertray right back to the radiator support area, MkIII has a 'full' undertray below the engine, as far as I know the MkII was set up similar to the MkI from what I'd seen.

I've seen filters (CAI) tucked in over the front tray for protection, those still plan on a burble of cooler air from mostly underneath to feed them.

ACHRO no feedback?

ACHRO i may have browsed passed it, but with a MK2, and the protective front under thing (the cage as i was calling it), how is it beneficial to have a CAI? It is drawing still the same hot air from inside the engine bay. Do you remove that bottom protective section (the cage?) to run a CAI? Do you open up more vents in the front grill to let it breath?

Also, because of all that, does it really get hydrolocked? IDK.. maybe i am just crazy thinking about stupid.

Tundrafoci With just an intake, as long as its one from a well known brand and not EBAY mod, you should be just fine without a tune. Of course the tune will make more power with it.

You would have to fully submerge the cai and be pulling enough force for water to be pulled up the tube. Don't worry about it lol
Good to know. Also will I have to worry about engine tuning/ running lean or anything?

Tundrafoci don't drive through puddles you don't know the depth of and you'll be fine. Even in heavy rain storms I never had a problem.

sparky34kv Sailor, thanks for assist. I appreciate the reply. I am trying to make smart improvements on the car. Had it almost 10 years and have no intention of getting rid of it.
