Cold Air Intake and Weather Conditions in Toronto

Here in Toronto,Canada we tend to have different variations of weather. One day it might be rainy and humid, and some days its hot and dry out. I was told that in rainy conditions, if you go over pot holes, water can splash upwards and your cold air intake can suck water into your engine. Isn't the stock intake on the 2001 type SH a cold air intake? Therefor, if I get an aftermarket one should I be fine using it as a daily driver, or should I get a short ram instead?

What SoFlaKidd means to say is, short ram intakes suck.

Yes, your stock intake is a cold air intake, it draws air in through the front fender. Assuming your stock system is still complete, there is a resonator chamber that allows the car to change the amount of air volume coming through at different RPM, it also serves to stop from sucking in water off the road. Unless you are driving through 2ft deep puddles/rivers then you should be fine.

Therefore you would be wasting your money replacing one cold air intake with another one.

You understand that, right?

Re: Cold Air Intake and Weather Conditions in Toronto

My prelude came with a short ram.
I like the intake pipe, but I want to get the stock filter cover and attach that to the end of the aftermarket pipe and use a stock replacement K&N filter.

If you want to do an upgrade get a stock replacement K&N filter.

Re: Cold Air Intake and Weather Conditions in Toronto
