everyone likes alittle security :)

Correct! Just a little piece of mind if I use the cold air extention, especially going through the car washes that have chassis sprays. I'd rather have it and not need it, than not have and get it wet.

your G6 has seen the inner-workings of a, gulp, "CAR WASH"? i would NEVER do that to 'Stella'....i bathe her by hand and dry her to a glistening Meguiars shine!

you know, there's a name for someone like you....it's, uh, it's, uh...well, let me think about it.

now, what were we talking about again?????

oh yea, i remember now. yep, the funniest thing that i ever saw, car related, was this time when a flat-bed pulled into the dealership and the driver, while loading a customers car on the flat-bed, had 'inadvertantly' pulled the car in two!!! THAT was cool....but for some reason the customer wasn't so happy!

what mom, its time for my shock treatment??? ok, be right there....just have to finish my email to Elvis!!!! mom, i don't think he's feeling well, he's in the bathroom throwing up......i told him he'd be 'ok' in the morning, but he should lay off the peanutbutter/nanner sandwiches just before bedtime.....

Interested in how the two differ....looking forward to your report ( I see you ended up being the guinea pig) :D
So far the cold air extention was better. The only advantage I see is a slight, 1 mpg, increase with the short ram pipe. On a side note, the intake resonates a light clicking noise out of the filter, not the engine itself, in second gear, quarter throttle at around 2000 rpm. It's louder with the cold air extention. I've been told by Injen tech suport that it is the fuel injector relays clicking. Not a real issue with me, but it is slightly noticable.

I have the injen intake also. I got a little worried tonight it was raining pretty hard and there was some flooding so I switched it to the short version to avoid the water. The switch only takes about 15 min tops. I plann on keeping both pipes on me just have the one not used in the trunk with my tools to change it back and forth according to weather. I am also waiting for the pre filter, I just don't want to suck up water. Nothing like a little extra security.

I found one site that carries it

Injen Hydroshield

By the way, do you have the fuel injector clicking noise coming out of your filter after the car comes up to temp and around 2000 rpm's with quarter throttle? Thanks..........

i will check on that i haven't noticed it Is it real loud or do you neeed to be next to the filter to hear it
I only hear it with the cold air extention on because the bumper well amplifies the sound. Only clicks at that RPM range for a few seconds. Injen has assured me that it is the fuel injectors making the noise. It only comes from the filter itself, not the engine. You should be able to hear it with the windows down very slightly. Let me know, thanks............
