well i'm new to the scene so i need some help with this. is it worth the risk to keep it as a cai, or should i go sri all the time. i was thinkin that i'd keep it cai during sunny days, and just switch it to sri on rainy days. here in nc when it rains it rains for like 2 or 3 days in a row, then sunny (xept in summer).

So I can't hydrolock a car if it has an SRI... and a CAI with bypass?

i think u can still hydrolock a sri but it's real real unlikely, cai is vulnerable to hydrolocking ESPECIALLY if there is no bypass, but there is still a chance with the bypass valve. i think that's right, correct me if i'm wrong.

In order to hydrolock your car with SRI, you need to drive thru a puddle that's as deep as the grill of the car.

SRI and CAI yield the same amount of power (none), the only the difference is the sound they produce. Id say go with the K&N FIPK.

sorry for the bad picture quality. my digital camera's lense is pretty fudged up. color balance and lighting filters are no longer features of the camera.

car looks good! slam it next!!!

listen how would you like to trade my 04 ex rims for you si rims???? there is no curbage they are still like new, i clean them once a week along with my car....idk i like your wheels better! holla back!
