hmmm so that's why the fswerks sri is so good? it's making sense now. so the engine, radiator, and intake need a sufficient amount of air flow?

i haven't even had that plastic piece on my car for months. when i dix my pulley tomorrow i'll cut a hole in it like that. do you know if power adder is a good filter? they are sold at autozone. it has a hole on the other end too so it's not closed like what you have.

I'm new to the whole CAI, shortram thing this is a first for me. It's a leaning curve so far so good. I usually just do a drop in K&N and I'm done.

Well i had that conversation already it would take some serious water to hydrolock it. Just everyday driving won't do that.
