Put one in your carbureted racing motorcycle, that's what they were designed for. They are ancient technology - no good for modern engines - especially one that is going to see a lot of dust!

What ? 250 - 300 degree range air Vs ambient air temperatures ?

Whose got a snorkle on their Jeep ?

How about a below the bumper CAI for those that do not water foliage ?
Wouldn't a below bumper CAI still suck in water when it's raining?

+1 on a snorkel, pretty much the only true CAI.

OOOOOooo.... I thought the filter itself helped keep water out

K&N Drop In OR CAI Style ? That is the Question!

Cost vs Benefits ?

K&N Drop In OR Homemade CAI Style intake ?

Both can be had for around $40.

So which one will provide the best boost in the LOW RPMs (ie Fuel economy driving range) ?
