Default Cold Air Intakes?

I was looking at some cold air intakes for my 03 accord 4cl and came across one that comes with a stainless steel air filter. I don't know if I can rely on it. Has anyone worked with a stainless filter to give me some feedback? In case you're curious, here's the intake http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...00160119812Why do I keep hearing that cold CAI's cause your car to suck water up from a puddle? The intake for my car is still above the battery and behind the splash guard.

as long as it can keep dirt and other crap from sucking into your intake and the air flows good it should be fine

I believe in that ad, the filter material itself is still paper. It is the filter housing (etc.) that's stainless steel (instead of the usual plastic).It really doesn't matter because they (the filter part) can be replace if you don't like it.Good Luck.

That intake will do the job of blocking junk from going in your engine. The mesh around the filter is what is made of stainless steel. Under that will be the paper filter that you have to oil and clean once in a while. My K&N filter has a black metal mesh (not stainless) and it does a great job.

I always shun ebay performance parts because they are well...crap. just get a decent AEM, they perform better anyways.

the guy above me is right, an AEM is always the way to go no matter what, bc they actually have some research and development for what is actually better for the car, most "performance" parts on ebay fit in the allotted space, but thats about it, i personally have a 99 EX b18c5 swap, with a vortec centrifugal charger and an AEM V2 intake, the V2 is so much better than any intake i have ever bought and i will never do anything but replace the filter, or just buy another one, so basically, if you dont care about the intake then dont buy it, if you want one, at least get one thats worth buying.

i wouldn't really trust experimental products such as these with the stainless steelbut if i were you, i wouldn't get a Cold Air Intake...okay maybe they give you more ponies under the hood but think about it.what if you drive over a puddle...all the water will get in you engine and it will make it stop working at all. so i would get a short ram intake instead.
