I want to ask few questions about accord euro[TSX].
I just bought
1 x unit DC SPORTS (CL9)header 421 - 2s pcs and
1 x CAI injen.

but my friend told me if I install the CAI then its danger to use the car while raining coz it will break my car mechine. (if the water level is high on the street)

My question is :
is it easy for the CAI to get wet, even if I drive slowly on raining ?

coz I dont want to to break my mechine because US$220 CAI ...

Your advise is greatly appriciated.

do you have MSN ?
add me :)

Your Friends Refering to Hydrolocking the Engine, Its not gonna happen...its all good, Install the full CAI.... Ive used this reference before, and ill use it again im sure...but unless you make a Habbit of Driving through a Lake at WOT (Wide Open Throttle) your not gonna risk hydrolocking your engine

Yeah, i have the injen cai and lowered eibachs and i still would have to go through over a foot deep puddle at WOT in order to hydrolock my car. Just use common sense when driving around with the intake, if you see a huge puddle, just dont go through it. Good luck, im sure you will love the intake + header combo once you get it installed.

K&N CAI comes with a drycharger, a filter cover that keeps out
some water but at 10% less air flow. If you get Ingen, Ingen uses
K&N's filter and you can buy K&N's drycharger.

I have fog light cover ported open so I drive slower and stay
away from any water spray coming off of the cars in front, in extreme
downpours at high speed on the interstates.

Otherwise I wont go through any standing water. For reference
if another car's tire is fully submerging, that's 6-7" deep and
too deep for me and I'll go another way.

Supposedly you have to full submerge the filter before it will draw
water, something like 15" off the ground level. So you can idle through
6" safely.
