ORIGINAL: marbro

air bypass still lets in hot air from the engine, the only real chance of hydro lock is if you drive through a puddle thats large enough, otherwise driving through extremely heavy rain wont ever cause a problem.
Even though CAI pulls in cold air you still will be pulling in hot air after the car is on long enough.

To improve things in general, use thermal wrap to block cars heat and this can be done on both the shorty and the cai

and they both sound the same, your just changing the position that the sound is coming from with the cai
This heat pad, sounds real helpful. Where can I get one? Any specific brands? And price ranges? Do you just wrap it around the intake and it keeps it cooler from the engine's heat?

hopefully that link works for you, if it doesnt just goto eastwoodco.com and search "thermal" and it will be under the exhaust wraps. If you do decide to use it, wear decent gloves when putting it on and keep your eyes covered, the wraps have fiberglass in it. Another option is using hightemp silicone spray to go over it as well to help with heat reduction.

"PROS: Since its farther away from the engine it get colder air wich carries more oxygen thus creating bigger explosions in the engine thus giving more horse power." 03sleeper

Sorry to burst your bubble but nothing explodes in an engine it is a controlled burn

Wow!!!! Pulling up the thread from the dead!!!! I disagree with both of you!!! The burn in an engine is uncontrolled, because "controlled" assumes that you can stop it at any time. It is also not an explosion unless the engine blows up. Rather, I look at it as a controlled charge that is ignited at the precise time to produce the desired effects from an uncontrolled burst of flame.

Aka, combustion, which is generally described as the controlled burn of fuel (or rapid oxidation) that results in a release of energy consisting of heat and light.

So technically you're both right, but are looking at it too semantically
