I think I need to sell it.


It just isn't my style.

Because it works and pulls cool air instead of a shortflow that pulls hot air? I'm confused. I will admit that I occasionally have reservations about my Prodrive on the Fozz (which is made by AEM) just like my Injen on the STI - but that's purely because it's a low-mount passenger side intake and I worry that my love of splashing through puddles in every other car I own will catch me out in a painful manner if I forget and go nuts in heavy rain - but as long as you avoid pools of standing water (which you should be doing anyways in a lowered car) I don't get why you'd run a SF intake over the stock airbox, and definitely not over a properly engineered CAI.

Her'es jQQ in a nutshell:
asks for advice. disregards all of it. makes silly decisions based on 5 billion different (mostly wrong) opinions of some armchair experts on the interwebz. results mediocre. complains.

ILU man but you know this is true

PS: the aem is way better in design and results (from my personal experience tuning dozens of each) than the sf. It would take for you to drive through a lake or something seriously stupid to actually hydrolock the car with the aem. Water would have to be up to mid-bumper

Yeah, I was an Injen fan because they were the best option early on for the GD's that didn't eff with the stock MAF in an unpredictable manner - but the Prodrive/AEM is lightyears better in fitment, sounds nice (because, lets be honest, that's still a factor), and, like you said, sits at a reasonable height in the fenderwell - offroading or fording flooded roads is the only real risk.

Just get rid of the AEM and get this then you'll have the best of both worlds (CAI and the FMIC look)
