    Rain rain rain and injen cai

    Here in New jersey we got slammed with a massive amount of rain this week. This morning i must have face at least 10 areas of roadway that were flooded out. I reluctlantly went through them scared to death that water would get sucked up into intake. The car seems fine, the road must need over a foot of water for the intake to suck it in.

    Where does it draw air in from? I know in the Trailblazer, I can go through water up to the headlights, as long as I keep moving ~3mph or so, and it keeps making a wave in front of the vehicle, and keeps an air pocket in the engine bay...

    Yeah the bottoms of the cruzes are really closed off so a cold air intake should never suck in water they do make hydro sheilds though incase you do, I'd just check the intake after a drive in the rain and see if it's wet or not

    you should be fine, like i said the bottom and front ofthe cruze is really closed off, so no water should get in it.

    Yes, please. The fires are getting too close to home.

    Get a bypass valve. AEM has them. If the CAI does happen to suck up air the valve will kick in.

    CAIs can and will suck up water. I stupidly went through some in my '01 Neon back in '04. I thought, "I'll be fine as long as I keep moving". Well, I was behind my buddy's dodge ram, I thought all was well, (this was during the night BTW, and I didn't know how deep the water was, although tons of traffic was passing through) and traffic stopped. The car started to ride the water and sucked up water into the engine. Next week I had to get me a new vehicle.

    you have a stock bpv, no need for an aftermarket one unless you really want/need a new one. It also just lets the extra air back into the intake after you cut the throttle, it doesnt give it a constant supply of air.
