I've been thinking that making a true CAI wouldn't be such a good idea since I live in Wisconsin and the weather can get pretty bad. I definetely don't want the counter effectiveness of a WAI by using a short ram intake, but I don't want my engine hydrolocking either...

Also, would using some sort of heat/water shielding (like those aluminum ones on ebay) help at all if the cone filter is mounted in the fender?

Thanks

I don't see why not. I know a few people around my area that have a CAI. Just don't drive through deep water and you should be fine. A splash shield would definitely be a good idea.

BTW, what part of Wisconsin are you from?

just use a AEM Bypass Valve. It will stop hydrolock.

I'm up here in the Fox Valley, my '91 has been silencer-less with a K&N panel filter and large diameter intake tubing running down into the fender well for the last few years now. No problems B)

I've had a filter in the fender for over 4 years. As long as you don't drive in 2' of water you are OK. Do use a splash shield on the back side though.
