intake system

I am having trouble finding a full air intake system for the 2009 2.2L. So far I have found the GM and K&N systems. Looking for a dry intake this time. Any ideas?

Are you looking for cold air or short ram? When you say dry intake do you mean dry filter rather than oiled?

AEM, Fujita, Injen, K&N, GMPP are your options (probably forgot one). 4 out of 5 people will probably recommend the Injen. I do. It has both SRI and CAI capability. It does have an oiled filter, but you can always buy an AEM dryflow filter to replace it with.

I will be upgrading to the AEM dryflow filter in a few months. I figure I might as well get some use from the Injen one first.

I guess the 2007 will fit the 2009 (Injen)? I was looking for a dry filter, you are correct. I would like to get a plastic intake. I think it keeps the air a little cooler.

All intakes will fit all years. Also all 2.4 intakes will fit 2.2's. As far as I know there are no plastic aftermarket intakes. But honestly it really doesn't matter. THe air is rushing through the intake piping so fast, that it doesn't have time to get hot.

IMO injen or K&N is the way to go!

Some say that an oiled filter can damage the Mass air flow sensor (MAF) because the oil comes off the filter and gets on the MAF. But this is only true if the filter is OVER oiled.. I have had an oiled filter for 3 years now.. NO problems with my MAF

The dryflow filter is just like a paper filter that is not oiled

Even though my intake is hot to the touch after driving?

Like I said.. the air is moving so fast, it doesn't have time to cool. If it was an issue, performance intakes would be made out of plastic

anyone have pics of installs? I like the Injen (how it comes down for more air). Is it to far down rain would get in?
