Anyone use a bypass valve on their cold air intake?

Anyone use a bypass valve on their cold air intake? cuz im thinking of getting a cai + velocity stack but im worried about sucking in water.


just wondering what your opinion is on it. you guys run a cai on the winter?
anyone notice any loses in power when using the bypass valve? cuz im too lazy to take off my bumper a few times every year to swap out the cai for a short ram when the rain is here + it pretty much rains all year here.

i really dont think water can travel that far up the intake pipe for it to harm anything... if you keep your filter cleaned and oiled, you shouldnt have a problem... and even if a little bit of water gets sucked in, think of it as a meth injection system

if you're worried jst get it, but that's quite a bit of water to get up that high, you'd have to get splashed quite hard to get the water up that high.

Second that. My gf's car almost hydrolocked this year, and the filter was clean and oiled... it doesnt make a diff. If you're going into a deep puddle... a clean oiled filter isnt going to do shit to prevent water from going into your pipe. Look into a hydro shield by injen if you dont want to cut your pipes for the bypass valve.

I ran a cold air intake for years and never had a problem.
You need to drive through a flooded area enough and have your entire filter submerged in water to get hydrolocked. I don't think you would want to drive through something like that anyways.
Bypass valve is a waste of money.
But if it makes you feel better, then get it.
