Airaid Cold Intake Concern

The Airaid cold intake I installed in my 2013 V6 coupe last year is of the type that it is not enclosed on top. When I clean my vehicle at a local car wash using the high pressure wand water sometimes collects in the bottom of the air box. I am not sure in the water is getting there from the gap between the hood and driver side front fender or from the box air opening. My main concern is that someday (if it has not already happened) water will be pulled into the engine. Is such concern warranted? Would the dry Airaid filter prevent such from happening? I have seen Cold Intake systems that are enclosed on top, should I consider replacing mine with such type?

Wrap it with a towel, saran wrap or aluminum foil. Just remember to take it off before you leave the car wash.

No it's not going to be covered under any warranty when it sucks in some water. Take the "CAI" off and sell it. Put your stock one back on and move on with life. Seriously, these things are not worth the risk.

Stock air box, AFE Pro Dry drop-in filter, and Airaid modular intake tube. Never worry again, and actually get cold air.

This thread proves that these aftermarket "CAI's" are not true cold air intakes as the stock boxes. You just indicated that warm engine air is drawn into the box, since water too is drawn in from the hood front/sides.

Should you keep it, NewMtang has a good idea to seal the top off during the car wash.

relax...the mesh of the filter will disperse the water enough that it will just be like driving in moist humid rainy conditions. +1 on not having any HP gains this is a sound/looks upgrade only. I only cover mine if I wash the engine bay

It's proven the stock setup is better than these aftermarket cai unless your running forced induction. I just did a airaid tube and called it a day.

Airaid does offer a cover to help protect the filter from up top. Not sure if this is what you are looking for but figured I would post this.

You have to call them and provide some info and then they can send you one.

I had this on my 2014 3.7 and after putting this cover on, my car did not have anymore trouble with heavy rain and car washes while I had the GT hood vents.

Without a vent in the hood, I doubt the water is getting in through the hood area. More likely you are spraying it in through the OE air inlet which connects to the Airaid box the same way as it connected to the OE box.
In other words I'm guessing you'd have water in an OE closed box too, if it was so equipped.
Simply try covering the box on top, with whatever, and see if you still get water in it.

Although I live in Oregon we have a lot more rain than Colorado....and again I never take mine to a car wash I do it the ole fashion way....buy hand.
I had an open Airaid on my 14 TrakPak and only collected a very small amount of water on really rainy days driving on the freeway. Like was said, the system will not allow any water to enter the motor and it would take a lot of water to cause any issues....A Lot of Water!
50+ years ago we would run a very small amount of water through the motor to clean out the carbon....water unless it's enough to cause a hydraulic lock will not harm the motor.....

Amen to Stock air box & Airaid modular tube. Cool IAT always. Personally I like the K&N drop in filter.

I agree with the stock airbox...although there have been some dyno tests recently that say the K&N filter actually looses HP when replacing the OE filter....a couple of HP isn't much....and I like the cleanable K&N.

AEM intake tube and AEM dryflow filter for me. Keeps the dealership off my back and the intake *mostly* sealed. Like Diehard stated, you can still manage to pump in water through the OEM inlet. However you'd have to submerge the vehicle to pull in enough water. As far as K&N goes...I'd stay away from oiled filters. Personally, I've had issues with them and MAF sensors in the past. I'll stick with a good dry filter, AEM/AFE.

Contact AIRAID and they will send you an aluminum insert free.
It does not completely close the air box but provides ample coverage
to not allow water to contact the filter.

Just the tube and reuses the Factory Intake Box.
The idea is you do away with the resonator chamber that's built into the OEM intake tube, allowing more sound to come through.
On the other hand, there are articles that say those resonator chambers are there for conditioning the air to be better used by the engine.

Roush's CAI is also a good one, Even with hood vents rain/car wash water never gets to my air filter

damn i like that ford sticker instead of the airaid! tell me how to get one! lol

oh and btw today i looked at a 2016 V6 engine online, and i realized they got rid of that stupid weird baffle we have on the stock intake tube. the new one is just straight from throttle body to air box like the V8's and like these airaid ones. interesting.

LMR. 3.5" x 1.5" on white background, not transparent. $6.99. It fits the raised oval portion of the tube perfectly. I didn't want it to say Airaid when I am actually running the AFE Pro-Dry filter.

If you don't have a hole in the bottom of the air box drill one so any water that gets in can drain out.

A little water being sucked into the engine will not hurt it. I remember my father telling me that WWII fighter planes had water injection for a quick boost of horsepower. I can also remember one way to get rid of carbon buildup in old engines was to pour a little water down the carburetor while the car was running. I don't thinh there is anything to worry about.

The problem isn't getting a little water in the engine. It's when the MAF Sensor gets a good amount of moisture on it, it will not read the airflow right and it will throw a Wrench light. Which then will cause the car to stutter and sometimes shut off.

This is a online photo that is listed as a 2016 v6. Look at the intake tube. No warts.

So what is the consensus? CAI worth it or not? I've seen several dynos that point to definite gains but is there an actual moisture risk involved?

gains with tune is probably what you've seen. I wouldn't worry about moisture but also wouldn't expect any gains. Up to you for the worth it..for me I scored one used for a good price the sound/bling was worth what I paid but wouldn't have been anywhere near full price.

If you did find no tunes gains lets see them plz
