To all those Injen/AEM/K&N CAI folk out there..
I understand the Injen CAI is higher up in the engine bay, unlike the other two..
That would mean that it's less likely to hydrolock (from water from below) doesn't it?
I'm thinking of whether to get the Injen or the AEM at the moment.
Methinks that an Injen with a pod filter heat cover would be the perfect protection against water?

supposedly, but if your driving through high waters its still very dangerous and to drive through that deep water... I bought the Injen cai and im only using it during the summer.

The Injen CAI won't hydrolock under most circumstances. If you do manage to hydrolock the injen, you would have probably hydrolocked the engine with the stock airbox anyways.

I just drove my car through torrential downpours in VA this morning and I didn't have a single issue.

i have the injen and from where it sits..it'll be hard to hydrolock unless you really drive in a puddle..but downpours and heavy rain wouldn't hurt it..mines is fine..just dont drive in any deep puddles

When he says deep puddles he means like 2 foot lakes.
