stersilver Ok I think that I have decided on a fswerks cai but which filter choice and can other filters be swapped in for the ones that come on them?

Car doesn't have a battery cover. I have had it for about 8 months now and have driven though many a rain, slush, and snow. No issues with the filter being wet at all. By using the OEM snorkel at the bottom of the metal enclosure and having it open on the headlight side any moisture drains off harmlessly.

Either that or steedas short ram intake, but I like the looks and performance of my FSWERKS much better. At one point I had only the CAI and it definitely makes a difference solely on its own.
Here is mine:

jetrinka Steeda intake creates an amazing noise and a decent bump for the seat of your pants. The fit and finish on mine wasn't the best though. I ended up swapping it for a FS CAI and never looked back.
