front bumper with cai??

Just got the injen rd and I am looking for a body kit. The only problem is i don't want a huge hole right in front of the filter. This defies the purpose of the filter being behind the bumper. I will only go urethane. So my question is...........Does anyone have suggestions for a front bumper?[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]

Cutting a hole in the bumper is not necessary........so any front piece will work with that intake.

I think he means he doesn't want a bumper that has mesh right in front of the filter...So he does run the risk of sucking up water!!!

I could be wrong...but that's what I can tell from what he's saying...

Dont worry, it will be cool. I use a CAI and no purge valve thing to prevent hydrolock. You have to litterly be in like 2 feet of water to do any damnage. Normal puddle splash's do no harm to it.

i could have gotten some JACKED UP info on this one...but i heard that some cars actually run better if they suck up a LIL BIT of water now and then....it some how makes things run smoother and better. dont ask me how, this is just what i heard.
but seriuosly, that doesnt mean u should go pour water into your intake tho! and yah, that hole in the front bumper will not allow enough water through into your intake to mess up your engine...UNLESS your sitting in a 2 foot deep puddle, or flooded areas....
