Hydrolock a legitimate fear?

I have a question about a CAI and Hydrolocking (i tried searching, but its a little more specific).

I currently live in SoCal, and last year we got 3 inches of rain (usually around 10-15). Realistically, is there any chance i can still get water in a CAI in a light rain, or should i consider looking at a SRI or the type s intake to avoid the hassle?

Thanks.

Re: Hydrolock a legitimate fear?

the filter has to be completely submerged under water, the only way i would even consider worrying about this is if your lowered

saw it happen on my other friends 01 Camaro Z28 and he just had a short ram but those things suck a lot of air and he hadf the front air dam that almost directs the water into the filter on those cars. u gotta be real carefull

i wont even go threw a small puddle with my T/A cus im runnin a SLP ram air

Re: Hydrolock a legitimate fear?

Re: Hydrolock a legitimate fear?

I ran a civic with a CAI on it for several years here in NorCal and we get significantly more rain than you will in SoCal. I even went through a 4 inch deep stream running across the road doing 35 (It was dark, had no idea it was there...) with no splash guard, lowered, and CAI.

Re: Hydrolock a legitimate fear?

about three weeks ago i went to the local track, it started raining, HEAVILY. i'm talking you cant see 3 feet in front downpour. And being in oklahoma our roads, especially around the middle of nowhere, and there were ankle to shin deep puddles i had to drive through, it was to the point where i drove through a massive one almost back on the main road, and my car started bogging down. talk about a sinking feeling, i thought it was gonnna die right there. but it made it, no hydrolock, and im still using it!

unless you drive like a complete and utter DUMBASS, hydrolock shouldn't be any problem at all.

Re: Hydrolock a legitimate fear?

Unless you drive through this You will be fine. My lude was driven through water were it was almost at the doors and got hydro-locked. Before that it was driven through a really deep puddle and made it through with no problems....I wasn't driving it and the driver didn't know that the filter was in the fender so go figure..

Thats like sayin you just won a million dollars because the chances of that are very very slim, and ur boy must have completely submerged the filter and he was a dumbass for gettin on it which makes it even worse because the intake is gonna obviously suck more air in.

Re: Hydrolock a legitimate fear?

Hydrolock is only a legitimate concern if you plan on driving through like 12 inch puddles....

Just get the bypass valve...

And for all the "bypass valves don't work" and/or "bypass valves defeat the purpose" people, read this article:

http://www.modified.com/tech/0104scc...lve/index.html


Also, this has been covered thousands of times, and even a google search could have helped you with this.

Re: Hydrolock a legitimate fear?

The thing about bypass valves is that they have been known to degrade. The foam inside gets weak and is sucked into the motor, just as bad as hydro-lock. Just thought I'd throw that out there. I also think that you will lose power with it since it is in the engine bay. My opinion, either get a short ram(AEM V2 is nice) or just use the CAI straight up.

exactly, bypass valve negates the purpose of a cold air intake, if your worried go short ram.

you dont lose power necessarily its basically defeating the purpose of having the cold air because where the bypass valve is located is where most of the engine heat is u might lost less than a horsepower if anything or nothing at all.

Re: Hydrolock a legitimate fear?

Hydro-lock can be either or. When it happened to me it was instant(The car just stalled out and that's it.) You should be able to check your filter by yourself. Are you using 93 octane gas in it? If you are using lower octane than that it will make things sound weird. Also sound clip would help a lot.

WTF does your first sentence even mean? And that warp thing is called a Hydro-shield, Basically a condom for your air filter. IMO it just adds more restriction therefore I'd still rather have a short ram. IMO either get a CAI and leave it as is, or get a damn short ram.
