I see lots of people running cold air intakes, especially the volant cai. How well do these work in cold winters like we have up here in Canada where it is often -40C for a month straight?
I've heard that CAI's can cause issues when it's so cold. I guess it would also depend on how they are designed as well. My dad and uncle seem to think it would be a bad idea to get one for my car.
Anyone run these cai's in really cold weather during the winter? What are your thoughts?
Hey man, I've had a cai on a few cars before my cts here in Montreal with no issue. No tripped codes or engine deterioration, as both cars, my old sentra and a ghetto style work up for my dad's elantra (don't ask) both survived 10+ years. The elantra still running it and it's been on since 04 with no cel. As long as you don't over review with a cold start you're good. Engine temps get pretty high even in -40 so I wouldn't worry
My drive to work is just a few minutes so the temp gauge often only just starts to move when I get to work. Would I have to let my car run for a few minutes first or does that not make much of a difference for the intake? This last winter I would let it run for like 2 minutes then go. Car never seemed to have an issue starting.
