Re: Custom CAI

it wont work for very long. after a few weeks of hot cycles the PVC gets soft and loses its shape, causing it to warp where your worm clamp is at the TB. i did this a while back on mine and kept having to tighten the clamp because it kept "melting". PVC wasnt made to withstand high underhood temps. looks nice tho. i ditched mine after about 2 months.

Re: Custom CAI

Nice innovation, but wouldn't this be considered more of a HAI (Hot Air Intake) then a CAI without the heat sheild It is a good start though.

Re: Custom CAI

Where do you live that you were getting such high temperatures it was melting the pvc? I can see your point, after looking it up i found that "THE MAXIMUM SERVICE TEMPERATURE FOR PVC IS 140F." Thankfully its winter in MA, so I have a few months to figure out what I am going to do. So, now my next question is what type of plastics are the aftermarket CAI systems made from that this doesnt become an issue? Anyone else had this issue that has installed one of these?

I don't believe the shield is necessary for it to be classified as a CAI, but it would help. Let me know if I am wrong. Thanks for your help guys, trying to make my Jeep better not worse, haha.

I've never had an issue with mine - it gets hot in Florida, really hot. Also, all the research I came across on the web said it was fine.

The BWoody doesnt have a heat shield. Everyone here considers that a CAI.

Re: Custom CAI

its doesnt matter where you live the underhood temp is the same +/- 5 degrees. after a week id notice that the PVC pipe was loose in the clamp. i gues with several heat cycles the PVC would get soft and conform to the clamp. so id tighten it up. a few weeks later it would do it again, and on and on, until finally the 3" PVC was really a 2" PVC.

Re: Custom CAI

wow, interesting. I check mine pretty often as I am always a bit skeptical, but I have never even had to tighten any of the clamps. I'll still continue to keep an eye on it though.

Re: Custom CAI

I bet the heat is something these guys didnt think about. I personally didnt think the heat would affect them.
