The 2001 doesn't have a MAF sensor. All of the sensors are right on the manifold. It made the job that much easier.

So I'm thinking about adding a pre-filter to my CAI. I have read threads and threads on the intakes and filters, but only once or twice have pre-filters been mentioned.

I'm not sure how much more it will do other than add some peace of mind. I plan on keeping the filter that came with the kit on there. I've read tha Bobzilla has kept that one on with no problems. They have ones that have been treated with a water repellent.

Thoughts/opinions?

true, you can go without one and be fine... but me personally with the conditions of the roads in VA i swear by the AEM bypass valve and have seen cars hydrolock to the point of needing new engines that didn't have them installed

I think the bypass valve to keep the water out of the engine, and a nice prefilter would work good to keep the dust out. Personnally I'd use both of them. I've always ran outerwears on my quads. I'd like to run one on my car, but i've never had a chance to find one.

AEM and Injen sell them for their filters... the AEM one would do great for the DriFlow filter (they tend to get destroyed when wet pretty quickly) < had one on a CAI and it was done in 3 months with wholes in it

Yeah, I think I'm going to wind up doing both the prefilter and the bypass. I am going to do the prefilter to start off with, and I will be getting the bypass in the really near future.

I drove in a pretty torrential downpour tonight and was nervous as hell, but wound up being fine. I just don't want to push my luck too much.

It's not the rain that's the problem, it's deep puddles. If you don't drive through deep water, you'll be fine.

Yeah, I've also been thinking about doing some slight modifications to bring the filter up a little. I have some ideas, so we'll see how it goes.

So I was doing some tinkering today, and need some input.

I disconnected the CAI tubing from the TB, and I wiped my finger on the inside right up to the butterfly valve, and got some black soot looking stuff on my finger. There wasn't a lot of it, and it wasn't noticeable inside the TB, but it was still there, and it's bothering me. I wiped my finger on the inside of the intake tubing, and it didn't have anything. All of the couplings are airtight, and the filter is on right. What is this/should I be nervous?

I have an AEM dryflow filter on its way, maybe that'll help?

Just threw on an AEM Dryflow, and Mitch's reviews are dead on. They do muffle it a bit, and I have no problem with that. They also take away some of the sucking noise that I got from a cold start.

Performance wise, neither better nor worse.

I got it off of e-bay brand new in the box for about $13 including shipping. I put one bid on it expecting to be outbid, but wound up winning (pretty sweet, huh?)
