buy an injen and dont be a puss

i have one and live in the midwest and have no problems with water entering through the filter. i love it. it sounds great and at top end i think it helps a little. im pretty sure the injen is the cheapest and the only ones that are out now are the injen and the aem and aem v2, which all do the same thing. good luck

Well, I was thinking V2, or the Injen or the K&N for the water shroud it has. I don't care about cost, I just want power and comfort knowing it won't suck water. I don't trust cold air, nor the bypass valve. I just want to get whatever is best all around, maybe not the most performance, like the V2, but something just as good I can trust, like maybe the Injen? What do you think?

You need to stop worrying.. you live in SOCAL!! Even the raining season earlier didn't do **** to my V2.. and I had to drove through a huge dip to get to my garage at that time... that puddle alone is as high as half of a 15" rim.. (yup.. someone's car is parrked right in the puddle)...

its a subjective opinion, but i feel there was a lost in low end torque after installing the aem v2. Before there was all around torque with the default air filter system. Therefore i must say i was not too impressed with this mod.

Need a good reason.......... look above my avatar.

Only mods are Injen CAI and pre-muffler removed (and imo, the pre-muff removal did nothing for performance, but it did help improve the sound a little).

I got an injen used on ebay. I installed recently and it improves the car's throttle response insanely. I didn't feel lag from the auto transmission anymore, and I actually notice all around gain, especially when ur in second gear or above . The car moves more efficiently and the sound is great. I think this mod is a must since u remove all that crappy plastic that weighs like 25 to 30 pounds, and it makes the engine bay look great. U don't hear anything below 3000rpm or if u don't hit the pedal halfway or so it's very civilized. After the 3000k, the engine sounds powerful, different from others, and non ricey. It Made the car fun to drive, although I need to improve the handling a tad.


After the installation, all I got where compliments like: "man it sounds really good and clean", "i know it's the intake, but it sounds like u have turbo", "love the sucking sounds from the intake when u rev slightly in neutral", "man, when u passed by it sounded so good and it looked fast", "sh1t it sounds like u added an exhaust, loud", "much better".

Definitley the Injen, Im suprised so many people are on the same page as me. I defenitly thought everyone was goin to be on the V2's d1ck. The Injen roars at WOT, kinda NSX-ish.

What for, u already have the V2. Take it to the track to see if ur in the 14's. If u aren't in the 14's, change it if u want. Ohh, Is my description the same as how ur aem v2 works? If not, could u mention how the car responds to it?

Is there any interior noise or any noise below 3k with the premuffler removal? Any noise from the exhaust? I was thinking of removing one Catalitic converter, u think I'll get gains doing so?>

My experience I have with AEM V2 CAI is that it has gains in the upper RPMs (around 5-6gs) all throught out the 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears.

Most of your guy's Injen CAI gets it's benefit from the lower RPMs offering more torgue I believe in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th + also.

I'll probably bring it to the track tomorrow to get E.T.'s w/the AEM V2 CAI. I'll let you guys know what's up (problem is, I have 2 amps and a 12" L7 Solobaric w/box. ) It'll probably slow the E.T.'s by .20 - .50 seconds.

This is what we want. My car with stock intake IMO, does not have enough torque in the lower RPMs and the throttle response is poor. Both can use a major improvement.

I've noticed that it removed the surge it had before at start. U tend to feather it so it moved without a tire screech. Now with the intake, the response is better than when u feather it and the car starts accelerating without a breeze. I actually make lane changes without revving it high when it used to do that surge when rolling. It's much more responsive indeed. U still get the tire screeching so watch out.

if you want quick starts i'd say go with Injen CAI. for highway/freeway acceleration i'd say the AEM V2 CAI. it's all on personal reference. i'll give the AEM V2 CAI maybe another 10,000 miles and then i'll switch to Injen CAI. my .02cents
