I just installed the kn and so far I can't say i would pay 299 for it. Wait till someone posts a cai for sale. Then just recharge the filter.

That looks amazing! Is the tubing under that paint metal or plastic??

If you look up, mine was painted hemi orange, but the paint never stuck after two weeks so now it looks boring again

Re: Official CAI/Exhaust Thread!!!!!!!

Quick question for everyone running the 4" bwoody cai. I was driving last night through a downpour and it got me thinking about the location of the filter on the bwoody.... I am running with the drycharger, but is it really enough protection against heavy rain, and furthermore will I be safe through the winter? I noticed when I felt the filter last night it does get a mist of water on it :/ Up here in the northeast the weather gets pretty bad this time of year and I don't wanna have any trouble with the intake. I opened the hood today to see what it looked like and it is filthy all around the lower portion of the tube and fender area from running dirt roads lately.... Should I put the stock setup back on or do you think I'll be alright with the bwoody?

You're definitely running the risk of hydrolocking. Lots of the guys from stormy areas opt against the bwoody for that reason. I'm not personally experienced with it, just what I've read on here before.

Follow your gut feeling. If it doesn't feel right, then it ain't right. Swap it out during the wet season... not worth taking the risk. Besides, it shouldn't take that long right? But that's just me. Here in Detroit, I swap out my front bumper and wheels back to OEM. The salt and snow are crazy. I'm afraid the slush/ice build-up from the car in front of me will fall off and kill my bumper. Well good luck to you buddy!

I'm thinking you hit the nail on the head with that response LOL! I'm gonna return the intake back to stock for the winter months... definitely don't need to take the chance!

Thanks!!

Re: Official CAI/Exhaust Thread!!!!!!!

I live in Saskatchewan, I was going to go with a bwoody, but Im not going to risk it. I currently have an Airaid, however, I think Im going to go with an aFe Stage 2 intake

Re: Official CAI/Exhaust Thread!!!!!!!

Are the polished metal CAI's (k&n and brute force) really that bad? I get that they will absorb some heat,but is the AFE for example that much better?
