Not unless you submerge the car into water, some CAI's actually route the filter down into this area and have had no problems with water vapor, and by the time the water vapor got through the filter and close to the throttle body I think the heat would evaporate it

Thanks bro...of course if any other ideas are out there, I'm open.

Oh YEAH! Cool idea there! Gonna have to look into that, with mine. After I get a CAI, of course.

Now, what about the "Auto Zone Route" that Yo mentioned? You know, I had seen those pieces at the Auto Zone in Fort Smith and wondered what the possibilities were. Is it possible that an "Auto Zone Special AND this Fresh Air Mod could give a fair return for the efforts?

Cool link there Jon. Thanks for posting. MY next question would be, I wonder how much that setup would end up costing, compared to the ones available?

I also wondered why, since we are talking COLD Air Intake, the intake tube wasn't insulated in some way or would the heat around the tube not be enough to cause the air inside the tube to be warmed up somewhat.?

hope this isn't considered "HiJacking", if it IS, I'll gladly start another thread. I've got some pretty good interest in this myself.

Ambient air temperature, what kind of material to use for the CAI tube, air flow, and all sorts of other topics have been debated ad-nauseum. The bottom line is that, on a street car, you're not going to be able to tell much difference between one CAI and the next. I was going to buy stuff from Spectre and fab up my own CAI until I ended up getting a Mopar CAI free with the Mopar Bucks. One thing I like about the Mopar CAI is that it uses a dry filter, no oiling. Amsoil and AEM also make dry filters. I will NEVER put an oiled filter on any car of mine.

Appreciate the clarification on that Jon.Like I said,I'm mainly used to dealing with the older Mopars ('66 Charger, '69 road runners and GTX) and it's almost like learning all over again and then there are some things that are basically the same as back then, but I haven't used them much since BACK THEN!
