Warranty?
I'm sticking with the things that I know won't
hamper my warranty. I'll do the UDP at 36k miles
though...;)

At the rate willy is putting miles on his car, his warranty will run out based on time, not miles....
They always do....I have never got to 36 K on any new car I ever bought.

I had my explorer for 2 years and only had 10 K on it when I go the Alti

Excellent question, Bill...I'm glad you brought it up.
As a matter of fact, that was the same question that
almost prevented me from getting a CAI.

Here's the layout:
The Altima's inner wheel well (space between the
engine firewall and the exterior body) is surrounded
by plasitic paneling secured by pop rivets. This cavity
is where one of the oe intakes resonators was placed.
You must get inside that cavity and pop out that resonator
box. This is the space where the Injen's 3.5" conical filter
rests at the end of the tube. There is a small hole
at the bottom of this paneling where the fresh cool outside
air comes in to be suck up by the filter. So, as you can see,
the filter is essentially protected from the elements by the
wheel well paneling. The insignificant amounts of road spray
encountered during or after a rain event is not enough to
cause problems to your intake. In order to hydro-lock the
engine you'd have to drive into a lake or a flood pool at least
high enough to engorge your filter with water. Not likely where I live.

Does this help...?

Depends on who you talk to.
Injen says theirs'. AEM says thiers'
There is no question that the Injen is
by far a superior product when it comes to
materials and finish.

ok, i asked my shop if there was anyway to convert an AEM CAI to a AEM WAI where the bypass valve would sit. they suggested to me not to get a bypass valve. but i told him i dont want hydrolock. then he told me that over a period of time the rubber in the valve warps and starts to suck in hot air from the engine. so a BPV was a bad idea. then he told me the injen could be converted, thats why they come in pieces. is he full of it or on the money???? can the injen be converted??

Just say "no" to the BPV.
It reduces hp and unless you live in a
swamp, you'll never need it!

I totally agree. I was in Houston in early November when there was heavy rains and flooded streets. I have the Place Racing CAI w/o the BPV and hit a flooded street going 35 mph and did fine. No hydrolock or anything. Just my .02 :D
