    I've herd that cai will give you more power but if it's a daily driver I wouldn't advise it because you have a greater chance of sucking water up.

    I was reading an article that said the CAI was the way to go with the k20A2 engine and that the SRI produced considerably less power. You said it's been proven that the CAI doesn't do well with Vtec is the iVtec in the K different or what?

    i believe in a lot of cases the cold air intake has advantages over the sri. i also believe that dynos can lie a little, since cold air intakes would function better under real driving conditions with more air flow. cold air intakes are proven to make a fatter curve in the power band, which i consider better than a slight increase in peak power. how many people are really revving past 8k everywhere they drive.

    i live in south florida where during the summer it rains pretty much every day. i have had cold air intakes on several different cars over the years, even my fiancees rsx has an injen cold air on it. we have never had a problem. the roads puddle up really bad in super flat florida. if your car is very low then just be careful and dont hit really deep shit.
