The CAI gains more HP do to taking cooler air from outside the engine bay, vs. the SRI which pulls warmer air from the engine bay. They both take in the same amount of air, but the colder, the better (more HP).euroR813 said:i know CAI gets more air than SRI but i live in FL, and it rains like no other day, plus i want an easy access to it (clean, rain, etc)
Even if it rains a lot where you live I would not worry about hyro-lock. Just avoid flooded streets and standing water (huge deep puddles). I plan to get an Injen CAI and when it rains it pours here in GA.Joker said:The CAI gains more HP do to taking cooler air from outside the engine bay, vs. the SRI which pulls warmer air from the engine bay.

The problem with the CAI and rain, is that you can hydro lock. So yes, if you live where it rains a lot, the SRI may be the way to go.
Good points. However, I don't think is that hard to clean...on my EP3 I just had to peel back some of the fender well lining and there was the filter. Besides, you shouldn't have to do it that often...maybe ever 7,500-10,000 miles.euroR813 said:previously i did have a CAI, and i'm not trying to get another wreckless driving by avoiding puddles, hahaha, but i think its just easy for me to clean, and plus AEM have the shield, and improve the air, so its not as warm as others, of course CAI is better but too much work involves when it comes to cleaning
Hurry up slacker! I'll come down there and help you install it next week.Joker said:Injen also offers a heat shield for their CAI, and they claim it helps against hydo lock.
I bought it, along with my Injen CAI, but have yet to do the install.. Soon
Ah, good info! :thumbsup:TSX 'R' US said:If you go with the K&N CAI, it comes with a drycharger...kinda like a sock for your filter.
Also, if you go with Injen or K&N, you have the option of converting it to a SRI if you don't like the CAI configuration.
When your hook up doesn't charge you to use their dyno, you are at their mercy as to when you can get on that bad boyHondaMan said:Hurry up slacker! I'll come down there and help you install it next week.
