    I don't agree with all that but it can cause problems if you drive in high water.

    Well just like anything else that promises small increases in hp, they work a LOT better with other mods, then you get an overall worthy percentage of increase. In other words the intake will add more hp to a motor with say a header and cam than it would a stock motor.

    If you have a quality filter it will not damage your engine. I have a true CAI with a bypass filter in the engine bay with a shield that i have over it so i have a CAI but when it rains i pull the shield off and it acts like a Short ram intake.

    It's expensive to go with the full intake unless you can find a used one.

    Any performance upgrade is going to negatively impact your mileage. You'd have to really mess it up to get it to overheat though. LOL

    I run a k + n filter cone right off the throttle body i think its 2.750 inches but i cant remember. I got rid of the air box junky plumning and i can reach down from the top to get to the oil filter. I wash out the filter about once a year.
