Cool Soaking the CAI at the carwash

I washed the car at the local carwash yesterday and really flooded the CAI box and filter. Attached is what I did to maybe alleviate any future occurrences. I used 1/4-inch thick gray household sticky weather stripping as you'll see. It won't keep all the water out but should help.

I'd lose that covering & probably find another cars wash, my housing gets wet in rainy conditions on the hwy, but that is about it, and the pre-filter works fine. Also it can be dried off with a towel fairly easily if you have a screwdriver to remove the filter.

I doub't he is losing much if anything at all. Pre-filters are very common on ATVs and dirt bikes. They are nothing more than a water resistant light fabric and help keep the larger dirt and dust particles from clogging the filter.

I think your going the wrong way with this.

The Airaid can handle getting wet. The bigger problem is making the Airaid breath cold air.
