aem cold air Q

last summer im driving back home and i hit stupid cat and break my fog light .so when i get home start to take look to damage and start to remouve the fog light, so im taking the fog light out and going to the front of the car the cone of the cold air is perfectly in line with the hole of the fog light,so start to think to find way to keep it open and put grill to protect the cone but let the air flow behind, i keep the case were you bolt the fog light and get speaker grill to cover , cut rond as my fog light and bolt in back on the car and go for test drive and notice (maybe just dreaming but) some minor diff in power.

now i replace the fog light but i still think of what apen last summer and have few question

let say you can put the cone of the cold air outside the of (just ex)the engine bay and is totaly breading air coming from the front of the car (protect of rock or anything can hit)to much air can be bad for the engine?( i don't drive my car in the rain so no worry about weader) ?

can the cone can take the air comming right on him(rolling on fast)?


let me no what you think thanks

I ran like this ( no fogs, open hole for the filter ) for quite some time....No real problems aside from the thing getting really dirty quickly.

I didn't notice a huge difference in performance, not enough to risk sucking up a low flying bird or something ( hahahaha ), but when I autocross for some reason I prefer to remove the fog light.

That took me 3 times to read through and I kind of understand. But what was the speaker cover all about? I've been thinking about getting a short ram now because all the problems everybody is having with the full AEM and the wet weather. What does the bypass valve do for a full intake? How does it protect it from sucking up water?

??? I haven't heard of anyone having problems with their AEM CAI sucking up water on this forum. In fact, people that have them (including myself) have commented on how they drive in rain often and have no problems with them at all (including myself). Not sure where you read that, can you post a link? I would be interested, thanks.

the speaker grill is to cover the hole of the fog light (but let the air coming from the front go to the cone), i remouve the fog light.

Hey man, i tried the foglight thing before...pretty much the same thing your talking about and its more trouble then its worth. You dont really get much more air flow like you think you would. You end up with a black filter that restricts more air flow then when you had it behind the fog light....i wouldnt do it, good idea but it just doesnt work.
