Default How is this intake?

Mugen Air Cleaner and Box.
A little pricey, ($680) but does anyone know if its as good or better than an aem/injen cai?

I live in northwest florida, and I don't want to get some cai and have my car hydrolock on me. What do you think?

Ho-ly Ca-rap. I don't think any intake is worth $680 unless it looks like a snail shell.

i dotn get why everyone has such a problem with hydrolock...ESPECIALLY in florida. florida is in the middle of a frickin 15 year drought. im in michigan (and it rains 60% of the time here cuz of lake michigan just west of us) and havnt had any problem (nor have my friends...'cept the one with the lincoln) have problem with hydrolock. yeah its bad ****...but i dont think the risk is all that great unless your intentionally swerving into two foot deep puddles

yeah, Sacramento roads are officially some of the worst in the country, and it puddles up here SOOO bad when it rains, and yet, i only know one guy whos ever hydrolocked his motor. and that was pretty much because he was following too close to a Jeep when it sunk into a puddle, he didnt have time to react.

My K & N CAI has a cover over the filter called a dry charger. Feels like thick silk screen material. We get some pretty heavy rains here in North Carolina and I haven't had any problems.

the problem isnt the mist or even moderate moisture you get on your filter. its the puddle you dunk your tube into and suck water out ogf like a straw. a little mist wont do much except clean your valves. will it Polo
