Question First Post and I Have a Couple of Intake Questions

i have a 2.2l 05 base model.
and i have a few questions concerning cold air intakes.

I heard they get dirty fast and have higher risk of water sucking up into your engine is this true?

Also to install one do you have to remove your whole bumper or just your headlight?

I was thinkin about getting the injen 2 piece one that can be either a CAI or SRI.

Welcome to the forum!

They do run a risk of sucking up water but you would have to be going thru a huge puddle to suck up the amount of water needed to do any harm.

To install you can just remove the passenger side headlight and headlight bracket and it's that simple. 6 bolts and the the entire unit is removed.

I'd go with Injen as well!

Welcome to the forums.
I went with the GMPP intake.
With it there is no more chance of sucking in water then the stock intake has because it uses the factory air intake behind the headlight.

I have heard good and bad about fujita. I have an Injen CAI/SRI intake on my car and I love it. I have also had AEM as well and it is a good intake system as well. I would go with either and AEM or Injen, just my opinion.

To the OP: Welcome!!

To everyone: I had a Fujita. My only negative was that it retained the stock intake manifold to use it. I switched to an Injen because it allowed me to get rid of one more piece of black plastic ugliness. lol Other than that, I never found anything wrong with it.

Short ram is the most practical way to go imo. Less bs dealing with the weather. Where you from in Wisconsin??
