Filter getting wet they hood vents

So I noticed in rainy days that my car makes popping sound from the intake upon startup. And struggles to idle. Only when it has rained. So I saw a puddle of water in my jlt intake shroud. What can I do to stop this? I used the little foam thing they provided but it still gets wet

I guess try readjusting it maybe. I use the insert too and it doesn't get wet.

Go back to your stock cold air induction air box with a K&N drop in. Sell your CAI or return it. CAI are marketing hype.

Just goes to show you how much r&d is really going into these systems. These problems you are experiencing are all over the web. Call up to the vendor that sold it to you and let them know that the design is flawed and let customer service or the manufacture solve the problem. Watched a test on youtube with the steeda unit and it was completely soaked.

If you have to keep it then get creative with your insulator blanket that has the rain catch. Put in a drain tube in the front.

Well I may have the same
Problem when I get my supercharger kit as I am going with the cold air for it because it's about 25 more hp with the vortech kit. I will be selling the JLT soon though

I wonder if it depends on the system you put in. I have an Airaid setup and the car has sat outside in the pouring rain for the past 3 weeks with no problems. From now on it will be in the garage.
I agree that some systems are all hype, but when the Airaid was installed it did produce more HP/TQ, being a drag racer for 35+ years my butt is a finely tuned instrument, and Airaid has done dyno tests showing an increase...............with a tune......IMHO

Go back to stock or get one like this: K&N Series 63 Mustang AirCharger High Performance Cold Air Intake 63-2578 (11-14 GT) - Free Shipping

2 benefits:

1. Rain protection
2. You don't suck in ANY HOT engine compartment air.

My only ***** with these companies is the tests are on their dyno with hood open and in a cool shop. Close the hood on a 70 degree day and start looking at intake air temps on the CAI. Now dyno that. You could probably run the same tune with the k&n drop in or similar and have the same power. These companies would like you to believe the intake made the difference when actually the tune is just a we bit more aggressive. Heck why not just cut off the factory air box and add a fancy cone filter to the end of the factory intake tube, same result.

I agree when you get into power adders you need some more flow but the last thing you want is shoveling hot underhood air in to your blower/turbo. Intercooler is a must for the big power imo.

Call Beefcake and ask for discount. Tell them you will do an install write up too. Problem is most places are held to tight pricing by the manufactures. At the end of the day your going to get what you pay for when it comes to stuff like this.

I have a 2012 so no problems with the vent issue but I have the AEM CAI. Its seald just like factory, looks good under the hood and has the nice reusable K&N filter that requires NO oil. Do a search on the AEM and check it out. I think you might like it.
