high set Cold air intake
Ok guys, I want a Cold Air Intake but i dont want one that is low to the ground because if i go through high water, I will wreak my engine. So is there any Cold Air Intake that sets a little higher up?

umm AEM or Injen CAI??? I have driven with my CAI since rainy weather has started and even drove in heavy rain conditions and no problems yet **knock on wood** Rule of thumb bro is you gotta drive careful and watch where you go and don't driver over any huge ass puddles. And as stated earlier before, to hydrolock you engine you would have To A:)run through a damn pool of water, B:)Run over a puddle w/o your under carriage plastics on, or C:)Be a dumb ass and suck in water intentionally but I'm pretty sure your a smart enough person to know these tips right thumbsup happywink

and some people like to play it super-safe by buying a AEM bypass valve to connect to your CAI...

If you really are THAT worried, get an Injen Short Ram Intake. You'll get slightly less HP gain, but you won't have any chance at hydrolocking.

as long as you won't run your car in a flooded area...you will be fine. I have my AEM CAI and my first concern was water getting but duct tape settled my prob. no rain had slowed me down ofcrouse if there's a flood on the road..i'd go around, if there's a pothole, i swerve and stay away from it.
