Wow a big puddle at the right speed is all you need..... damn i wanna know how your CAI is set up cause the one on my ranger is behind the headlight and in order for it to take on water, and I mean a amount that will do damage I would have to have the intake actually underwater. so please enlighten me on how a big puddle will suck up water.....

I had a K&N Fipk on my '03 witha 4.0, and flowmaster exhaust. I saw a 2 mpg increase with the k&n while driving on the freeway. Years ago one member Dynoed his truck with an intake, exhaust, programmer, and jbl wires and he saw an increase just shy of 25 HP orver stock.

does your mitsu hav a cai?

i can see your beef, for what you get for the money, its less than good. but i bet if a guy walked in were you workded and wanted to buy one you would sell it. people by them for astetics too, not just power...in your case it didnt work out, but doesnt mean every engine ever doenst bennifit from it.

as for the puddle thing with one... ok yeah you replaced an engine with water damage, dosnt mean if you get one your going to suck in a bunch of water... yeah its possible but you have to hit a big *** puddle for a long period of time with some speed....either way with or without a cold air its a dumb *** thing to do... bu statisticly speeking everything is possible

Yep, and my intake temperatures went slightly up because of it, but with my monstrous Garrett Twin ball-bearing HTA3582R Turbocharger on a built head and block, the stock intake was way restrictive. They get that way on Evo's at over 400 HP, since I'm between 600-700 I needed that. - The 5 Inch intercooler in front brings the compressed temperatures way down, plus I run alcohol fuel which I would bend a rod before getting a knock. I'm looking at relocating my ACD bottle so I can run an intake inside of the drivers side fender. I don't drive my car in the rain - I can spin all 4 tires in the wet in 6th: pretty scary.

damn dude, snazy! and 6th wot in the rain i would imagine would be scary! scary fun! however you did make my point... you needed the cai. given the small (compared to evo or sti or supra ect) market we have its somthing... doest do much if anything(maybe more noise), but its somthing.
