I got a question for all you out there. Has anyone had any troubles with there cai in the winter months? Its almost winter time here and i was just wondering if there was any problems or should i just invest in a sri for the winter[race]
Guess it depends how your CAI is positioned... if it is in a slush-prone area of your car, then yeah, may want to go to a SRI, but if it's not in your wheel well or facing backwards, I would think you would be ok.
Do you have your lower splash guard in? If so then it should protect your filter pretty darn well from rain and slush cause its pretty secluded in the fender where the old airbox used to be. I wouldn't worry about it unless there are huge puddles to go through. I have the Steeda SRI and I am glad I did last winter. There were some puddles in this flooded town I have to go through that would have hydrolocked me.
As far as suspension there is a suspension/wheels/tires forum here you can post in.
I got the splash guard on. I was just thinking of gettin a dry charger too just for the little more protection from splash and freezing. If it comes down to it i might get a sri for the winter and then just put my cai in the summer
i didnt have any issues with my cossy intake the last few winters ive had it... i think i had 2 times where it got (atleast i think) TO cold of air and bogged down and shut off, but the second it starts and i rev a few times let things warm up its golden... a bit louder in winter is all ive noticed
Thats why i think i might by the dry charger just for that extra piece of mind. But if worst comes to worst i might just buy a sri. On CFM they have a package deal for steeda sri and cfm throttle body for 460 so i might go with that
what about one of those outerwears? i live in jersey, and weve had relatively mild winters the last 2 years, but you never know... im getting my cai installed (by me) saturday so i think im gonna get one of those outerwears to protect it.
