Resonator

All right so Ive been reading around and I decided that instead of spending over 100+$ on an intake I just got the type s and removed the resonator, now there seems to be a big debate that there is a chance of hydro locking... Is this true should I be bothered to build some special tubing to move where the intake sucks in air? I live in Canada so I will be expecting some puddles when it rains it RAINS! plus there is gonna be a ridiculous amount of snow coming soon .

Ps anyone know anything about remote starters? When I try and start mine it tries to start (electrically without turning the engine over) but it seems like the immobilizer stops it. I can start it with the key in (without truning it to on) This problem happened when I removed the resonator...

Pps I removed every part of the resonator

thanks for the help

Ok, for your engine to hydrolock, it needs a lot of water. Did you put the splash guard (that bit of thin plastic along the bottom of the car) back in place? If you didn't, put it back now.

What sort of filter are you using? If it's a K&N or similar then water will have a hard time getting past it. Just driving through a splash won't cause any trouble.

You said you drive through puddles, how big? Like deep enough to cover half your wheel? If you're driving through puddles that deep then I would be worried. Otherwise, you won't hydrolock your engine.

Well if the water doesn't go as high as the centreline of the driveshaft I wouldn't worry.

Well i have a remote starter on my car and it seems like yours is doing the same kinda thing mine is doing and i never took out the resonator. I try to start my with the remote starter and soemtimes it will try to start and then shut off but i am able to use the key if need be. It could also be your starter and its wiring. I got all my stuff replaced and i havent had any problems since

the unit that "overrides" the immobilzer doesnt actually override it. when you got it installed you probably had to give the installer a spare key that you didnt get back. That key is inside that unit and it simply takes the signal from the chip that's insied the key and sends the signal to the immobilizer inside the ignition switch. it may have just lost power or the spare key may have gotten jarred loose inside that box. if you got it done from a legit place, they should have a lifetime warranty on all alarm/remote install work. see if they will troublehsoot it free. otherwise you can start a thread and we can troubleshoot it. it will suck though b/c often times it is pretty tedious testing wires and checking for cold soldering joints etc...
