Talking Intake Heat Shields

I'm considering purchasing one soon, but is it going do anything other than look pretty under my hood?

Your expert opinions?

I've read on here that Short Rams tend to get wet after you wash your car. I think a few members actually bought the heat shield just to protect the filter from water.

Heat shields are good for SR intakes. For CAI, the air when idling will probably get hot, but after you begin to move, it'll cool down.

Water drips over the air intake when you wash your car and when it rains.

I have it, but then again I'm paranoid. There are all kinds of water stains on it, so I'm glad I have it but I've never heard anybody hydrolocking because of a little water though.

So i'm guessing that the water comes in from the edge of the hood along the left side (from inside) of our cars. So in that case, the shield is placed on that side to block water instead of between the intake & the rest of the engine? So much for "heat" shielding huh?

One of the things I did was get some rubber from Home Depot. It's about a 1/4 inch think. I put that under my Heat shield, between the filter & the shield. I also ran some 4 inch pcv from under the hole to the front bumper. I also have a body kit, so it's open. If you have a 01 or 02 & no fog lights it will work. U just leaves about 1/2 to an inch from the pvc to the opining, under the filter. So it's about 2 inch's from the filter. Act's like a ram air. It made a WORLD of difference. Even better then my CAI when I had that, before I got the s/r. So it gets cold air right up to the filter. I also don't drive it during bad weather, have a beater for that.

I disagree with that.

I think what you said is more applicable to a SRI than a CAI.

The CAI will be drawing in cooler air whether it's at an idle or moving. It is not sucking in hot engine compartment air either way. Versus the SRI, that draws in warm engine compartment air when idling, but gets cooler air once you start moving and the air under the hood starts circulating due to the car's forward movement.

How the heck do you SR people get your filter wet when you wash? That doesnt make any sense to me.
