Installed my brand new Injen CAI/SRI as the short ram.
I want to go install the secondary intake tomorrow but should I wait until I get a hydroshield or is it that big of a deal?
Any pointers are highly appreciated!

you should be fine...when i had my intake i bottomed out in a puddle and the filter was soaking wet and the car ran fine
LOL Not recommended though. Running a short ram you shouldn't have to worry about anything water wise.

So i heard on another forum, of a way to keep water out without a hydroshield, they said to put a condom over the filter, cant say it works though just read it once

Okay I'm going to install the secondary intake so that I will be running a cold air intake until I order a hydroshield...
It's super dry here but when it rains it comes down hard lol but I think it will be fine until I get my hydroshield personally =)
Thanks everyone for the much needed advice ^-^

I have a Spectre filter on the end of my modified stock SS/SC intake. I pulled it off a few months back - it was wet on the inside of the filter, and all around disgusting looking...put a K&N drycharger on it, and called it good. Hydroshields FTW!

actually i have a drycharger if yo u want to be technical, and ebay is way cheaper, make sure you get the right size, i had to buy the K&N drycharger bc my Fujita filter is too big for the Injen hydroshield

I do not have a Hyrdoshield...
you also dont have opening in your bumper.

If you have grills or foglights, I reccomend it. My Ex's cobalt had a CAI and had problems where it was sucking water in and throwing codes and riding badly until I got her a hydroshield.

Yep - mine is wide open - perfect for sucking in air. And water. And snow. And salt. And babies.
