Question intake questions

anyone that is running a cold air intake:
have you guys had any problems with them since snow is melting now? have you had any CELs because of the CAI?
I plan on gettin an intake soon. I'm thinkin about the Injen, MRT, AEM. I was also thinking about a Short ram, like the BLitz.
I also read that Weaoon-R has a short ram for the WRX.

I rode in a WRX wagon with the silencer removed. the turbo is more louder, so is the stock BOV. will a new intake make the turbo and the stock BOV even more audible?

With the CAI systems, just be careful when driving through deep water. All those intakes have a good reputation of no CELs and performance.

Yes, with an aftermarket intake the stock BOV and turbo will sound louder.

Who's wagon did you ride in with the silencer mod?

Yeh what I have heard is that you have to drive through some pretty deep water to Water-Lock your engine. My intake on my VW sits below the engine compartment, so I was pretty worried about it. But after talking to tons of people about it that live in places that get alot more water on the roads then we do, you should have nothing to worry about, and if you are really worried there is usally a way to Adapt somthing like AEM's By pass vavle on there.

I've heard the AEM bypass valve for the WRX doesn't fit because it was made for a Honda. Anyone heard different?

Not to sure. The company that I bought my Intake from (Evolution Motosports) sells a Bypass Vavle it is not labed AEM, but looks exactlly like it, and everyone that I have asked told me it is just a AEM with the Badging Taken off.

Question

any info on short ram intakes for the WRX? i know blitz has one, Sard. I also read somewhere that HKS will have one, and weapon-R too.

I am also thinking of replacing the turbo inlet pipe, but it looks really hard to do.

one more question, will the turbo sound louder with an intake than with the silencer removed?

Wish I could tell ya about the sound for sure. I dont have a WRX, but my Jetta 1.8T after I installed my CAI sounds just like a BOV, I was planning on buying a BOV but now I dont have a need for it. I do have a aftermarket Diverter Vavle tho. And that does add to it. I will see if I cant find out some info for ya.

AEM's bypass valve should fit on any intake if you get the right diameter bypass valve. All it basically is, is a hose that has valves in it that will open if the airflow will not pass through the filter.

It is pretty universal, and if anyone knows where to get the cheap generic ones, let me know, I would like to have one just to be safe.

Later....Kris

How much do they normally sell for? Evoms.com sells them for I think $50.00 or so. I will ask on the vortex and see what they can find out.

Ohhh you can get anything to work , but yeh I am sure some place out there makes one that will work tho. But I really dont know how much you have to worry abut waterlock. I will try to find the test that I saw, but they took a Intake and submerged it in water, it was on a Ferrai 360 I think, they were testing out the Bypass Vavle, if I remember right the intake didnt even suck up enough water to get anywhere near the engine. But I could be mistaken on that. Another thing is, on a turbo car water would first go into the Turbo, and mess that up and probably wouldnt even make it to the block. But then again I wouldnt want to mess up either.

I've read that is does and that it doesn't. MRT and HKS make short ram pods.

I would hold out on the turbo inlet hose until you are making more HP. For the amount of money you spend, most people have reported negligible gains from the hose. Plus, it is a PITA to change. I would guess 3 hours.

Yes, turbo will sound louder with an intake.

, Good point. But there might be other intakes that the AEM Vavle would work with? What is the Main intake everyone gets?

Chris you get so touchy. I'm just saying people have installed them with success. Hmmm, MaXxBoOsT must have bought an AEM intake? Don't ya think?

I wish I had my pit crew read the instructions before installing my AEM. All they could talk about was using Velcro. Next time, I'll do the install myself. By the way, thanks for the help guys.

Well I will see if I can find one and see if I can make it fit. I am sure it could be made to fit on there.

But if not oh well, if they did not design it to fit, then it must not be that big of a deal.
