    Cold Air Intake Idea!

    Well while my engine is out, I decided to relocate a few things. Anyway i think i figured out a nice way to route the intake

    Would this work? The pipe will go under fuse box and to engine. I know i will have to extend the MAS plugPicture 009.jpgPicture 010.jpg

    You're just asking for trouble with a cai... And they're really useless. No point.

    Vacuum reduction, Powdercoated misc, cruise relocate, Evo9 BOV, Custom catch cans, Russell fuel filter, SS braided fuel lines, High flow fuel loop, Autogage fuel gauge, Catless DP, DNP Y-pipe, Fuel pump hotwire.

    It's a good way to hydrolock your engine when it rains. Don’t ask me how I know.

    What if i added a check valve, so when water tries to get it it wont suck it up?

    A check valve is a one way valve. That means that a check valve will not prevent water from being sucked up into your engine.

    CAI do not net any performance gains, and I'm pretty sure your engine is out being rebuilt due to a spun bearing and lack of oil pressure Don't make things worse for yourself... the stock configuration is fine. If you really want to, you could get an aluminum isolator box so the filter doesn't suck in hot engine air... but again, will you see gains? No.

    Well i ment more like a small filter higher up the pipe, so when the pressure is to much it will pull from there thus making the water fall out right? Why do people put cai if it doesnt help?

    Leave my engine alone! :P and not so much a spun bearing, its more like wore out bearings haha

    People install CAI's because they are uninformed. Not that I'm saying anything about you when I say that... but that's really the reason. People seem to think that they actually do something. Even if the air is a few degrees cooler down there, it doesn't make a difference. You should be worrying about upgrading your intercooler Those help a lot more.

    Why did I think you had a GTO? Anyway, gutted MAS isn't advised either because the honey comb keeps the air going straight. There's really not a whole lot you can do with the intake on the NA's besides an open element filter. Our cars are pretty nonrestrictive from the factory.
