Thank you all for your input... I'm liking the long tube Injen CAI and am probably going with that. My only other question is will it pass a smog down the road? Keep in mind... CA.

None are smog legal here yet. None have the carbon trap in the lid as the stock one does. Juts take it off when you go for smog in 5-6 years

You'd have to drive through 22" of standing water, completely submerging the filter, to worry about hydrolock with the long tube Injen. No offense, but you'd either have to be a complete idiot, or suffer an act of God, in order to do that.
Well, I'm here in SoCal where we get about 10" of rain a year. But like I said in another thread, I have a friend who owns his own repair shop specializing in imports. When I mentioned to him that I was looking at getting the Injen for my car he told me I should reconsider. Said he knew two guys who'd destroyed their engines by sucking water through a CAI in the past year. I didn't ask, but there's no where around here that gets 22" of water ever. Maybe half that on the worst day. I guess I'm still not convinced you'd have to completely submerge the filter to blow the engine.

Could someone post a pic of the location of the filter when the CAI is installed please? I'm just curious to see exactly where and how low it sits. I get nervous when I hear possible engine damage. Last time it rained here my car was nearly floating across the road while I was driving haha. And I do plan on lowering the car about 1" in the future if that even makes a difference in regards to this topic. Oh and also just curious... is there room to fit a throttle body spacer using the long tube Injen CAI? Thanks everyone!

Try this thread out for some good photos of where the filter sits.

I live just down the 91 from you in Riverside, there was some really bad flooding in my area during the last storm, IMHO if you have the hydroshield there should be no problem. I had to drive through some pretty wicked puddles to make it home and had no real problems, definitely recommend the shield though.

Question Anyone try the AEM Pre-Filter Wrap for rain?

Anyone try the AEM Dryflow "Pre-Filter" cover or Filter Wrap? It seems like it would work with either the InJen or AEM true CAI kits, but I'm not sure. From their website:

"AEM has released six pre-filter wraps for AEM DryFlow™ Air Filters. AEM DryFlow Pre-Filters are manufactured from a durable micro-screen material and pretreated with a proprietary hydrophobic process designed to prevent splashes of water or mud from saturating your DryFlow air filter."

Sounds like quite a claim and it seems a bit spendy, $$, but I guess it certainly beats repairing a damaged engine after sucking in a big glop of water. Anyone here try this yet? What do you guys think? Take a look:

AEM Dryflow Pre-Filter 1-4007 for V6 Camaro:
http://www.aemintakes.com/search/product.aspx?Prod=AEM-1-4007&cst=81515.1.0001

AEM Dryflow Pre-Filter Wraps:
http://www.aemintakes.com/news/news.aspx?ID=2496

I found this thing while researching here:
http://www.aemintakes.com/news/news.aspx?id=2721

I'm thinking about buying the AEM intake kit, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. I'd like to hear more about it from other users first. My co-worker with a V6 already tried the InJen kit but returned it after it leaked oil at the breather connection. He also didn't like that their awesome looking Amsoil air filter actually rests on the stock plastic brush guard/belly pan below the bumper, practically blocking off the filter element in the nose cap. The brush guard was used as the support! (???) I didn't get why InJen would to that when they have such a good filter.

Of course, what I really want is a turbo, (too $$$$) but then I couldn't use a CAI anyway!

....it seems all you talk about is AEM in all your post! Good way to bash other manufactures without paying sponsorship fees.

I lost a previous fairly new car to an urban flash flood and there are many places around here that you may be suddenly in a situation of running through deeper than you'd like water in a hard rain. That said, I felt much safer going with the Cold Air Inductions one and I like other characteristics of it better. Just my 2 cents.

The Injen longtube filter is in the same location as the filter on my car with an IPF supercharger. I do not have a rain hydroshield on it and perhaps that would make a difference...

But I recently discovered I can no longer visit my "touchless" automatic car wash when I'm lazy and just want to knock the dust off (it's just water jets that pass around the car a few times).

I've tried it once with car idling and once with it shut off for the wash (yes, I'm really lazy, LOL) and each time when I tried to leave the car bucked and tried to stall for several miles.

I've got to get that rain shield on before my luck runs out and I get caught in a real downpour!

Here is JRE's results for V8 Camaro's- note the results of the CAI brand with a cold air scoop. I have to expect we would get a similar bump with that combo on the V6. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...VE&hl=en#gid=0
