I have instaled an AEM cold air intake and worried that water may get sucked up into my engin. The intake is not that far from the bottom of the road and I already have had to drive through some big puddles. And it is only the beggining of the season. PLEASE HELP WITH ANY SUGGESTIONS. Thanks

Well I'm going to assume that the Z is your only Car, so the Best solution to not drive it in heavy rain would not be an option. The Filter on the AEM it pretty well protected from Light Rain, but you said puddles and those are not good. your best bet would either Return to the Stock Air intake setup, or Change your AEM into a short ram intake. That is kind of what I do. In the Summer I run the AEM. for the rest of the year I run an AEM/JWT Popcharger hybrid setup. Check Ebay, for some very Cheap Short ram Solutions.

The other option is just to buy the AEM water By-pass. for like $40 and add it to your intake setup Link here

What kind of intake do you have? Some of them have a bipass valve so that virtually no water can get in. I doubt that in regular rain storms that you could take enough water in to destroy your engine. Just stay off the 10! :biggrin: Where does your intake sit? If it is in the upper part of the grille area I would think it would be ok.

Put your stock airbox back on for the wet season?.....


There are other intakes that don't suck air off the curb.....like the Secret Weapon I just got....or JWT Pop charger, like I'll be selling soon...

have the AEM cold air like you and i took the extended pipe off and just attatched the filter there. makes it a short ram and easily reversed with a clamp or two.
