Angry aem cold air intake air bypass ?

I live in seattle, and over the summer i purchased an aem cold air intake. Upon purchase the installer said they didnt have an air bypass valve ( in case the filter is submerged ) that went to the intake, but would have one soon. Ive searched around, and cant find one, but there are so many HUGE puddles around right now, i find myself swerving from puddles because of the horror stories of water flooded engines ive heard. Where can i get a bypass valve please help!!!!!

LOL, swiring puddles... some people say you don't need them, I say "whatever you can do to prevent, do"

www.summitracing.com has them

I know what you are talking about, however, I will suggest you not to get it. I believe that the bypass works better for the NA cars ... but on our turbo cars, it may suck so hard that you eventually suck more air from the bypass then from the CAI filter head itself - thus defeating the whole purpose of having the CAI altogether.

How bad are the floods? Bad enough for you to change your air intake? If it isn't too bad ... you can try driving through the floods really slowly, using as little as the gas pedal as possible ... have done that for my car in NYC and am still doing fine.
