I ran a cold air intake on my neon through the winter as well but i am concerned with the placement that this set up had that while the vehicle is in motion, the filter would be getting blasted with all the crap that comes off the road during the winter...by going right through the fog light opening.. This puts it in the direct path of snow, ice and slush...at least with the way the neon was set up there was not exactly a direct path to the filter for the elements of nature. I dont remember ever seeing any build up on the filter of my neon during the winter.i ran a iceman intake on my neon during the winter and the filter was just barely above the bottom of the bumper and my car was lowered.. had about 4" ground clearance (if even that) no problems.
No, there was no change in noise after the waterproofing. But it's really not a loud CAI to begin with. It's SOOOO much less sound than the K&N CAI (which I had at first) because the air filter on this CAI design is parked in the fog light cavity... far away from the engine compartment (and driver's seat). Plus I lined the fog light cavity with 1/4" foam padding (basic carpet padding) to dampen the sound further, which did help soften the sound more. I wouldn't call it a "noise" at this point. It's only as loud as the engine at any given rpm.I'm sold! What about the sound? Did the noise also go down when you waterproofed it?
SWEEEEET! Glad it works for you. :smileup:OMG!!! I completed my CAI and you were not kidding shaun! I raced a ford 150 at the light yesterday and basically walked right passed him. Usually I would creep passed 150's Now to add the nos and I will be walking about from all those stuck up mustang kids. REPS for Shaun!!!!
