    That's good to hear. What about the aftermarket intake guys? I assume all that goes out the window with the CAI, in which you would need a BPV.

    i dont understand what youre asking, are you asking f you need the bpv with and intake? If so, then yes you still do. The only way you wouldnt need one is if you got a blow off valve.

    I stated the OP should get a BPV, cause the title of the thread says "Rain..CAI". You mentioned it has a BPV stock. So are you talking about the Injen intake coming with a BPV as part of the kit, which is what you meant by stock? Or are you saying the stock OEM intake has a BPV? If that's the case, once you take out the stock intake you no longer have the BPV, correct? In which he would still need to get a BPV.

    I'm confused now.

    bpv= bypass valve....as in..something to open if water gets in the intake..to bypass the orginal spot of air intake..so fresh air..not water can get to the motor...and sence there would no longer be anything pulling the water into the cai..because the bpv opened...the water would then drain out...a bov=blow off vavle..is on the turbo..to let excess pressure out...so..bpv..isnt bov.....and the stock intake also has a drain...in the bottom of the airbox..with a little tube connected to it..so water can drain from the stock air box.....sorry if i rambled..

    Hey Cruzers, for all worried about rain; install a Bypass Filter.
    Attached is a picture of her car with a Injen CAI w/ a bypass filter.

    Installing a BPF will just reduce the amount of air coming from the CAI and increase the amount of air coming from the BPF. Unless of course you get a BPF in which the resistance of flow is greater than the CAI filter + the additional resistance of the extra 1.25 feet of tube including the bend + reduced viscosity of air in the compartment due to the increased temperature.

    In short, if you are installing a BPF, the SRI is probably a better option since the turbo will draw more air from the bpf and thus the engine compartment anyway.

    I tried doing the same exact setup and it drove me crazy trying to align the tubes and connect the filter so I just F-It and tossed the bypass. Oh by the way, what size did you order? I ordered a 2.75 bypass because the injen tubes are 2.75 but I couldn't get the tubes far enough through the bypass. Did you cut you tubes shorter?
