    Yeah, I'm seeing them all over FB and they just end up parting out their cars. I'm probly just getting paranoid especially having Upstate NY weather and snow in mind.

    I always check on the filter, its a habit now, clean and dry. I learned to keep my rpms low as can be. when I notice alot of puddles and heavy rain.
    Not sure why people take off the trim pieces.

    Only problem I had was washing my car with a power washer after the CAI install. Water was all over the top on the filter. And even then I found where the water was coming from. I used 3M double sided tape and small peice of bent sheet metal to guide the water away from the filter. Dry filter every wash. 💆‍♂️

    I know this is late as F, but there was black friday thing, like 5% or something. I wouldn't be surprised if they did anything again this month towards the end of the year.

    Given a CAI lowers the IATs by quite a bit, does this translate into better throttle response compared to stock intake in the same weather conditions? I think part of it is affected by the increased diameter but I wanted see if anyone has first hand experience to share?

    On Acuity's website, it says the intake increases low-end torque and minimizes the torque dip at 3k rpms. Has anyone with the take found that to be the case in real world driving?

    Thanks

    So would y’all say the AEM 1-4002 is pretty much a must get for the acuity intake if I’m worried about hydrolocking with the intake?

    It's more of a pre-filter. It's not gonna magically stop water from be sucked up if you submerge the thing.

    I know that but like as a small extra layer of security. I know that’s not going to stop it if it’s submerged or anything like that

    Are you really low to the ground and do you still have your fender lining?
