Hi, I was just looking at the AOS CAI at SpeedState, but I don't know what the AEM Bypass valve is, or if I need one (1996 Elantra, manual transmission). TIA for any answer you can give me. Also, anybody tried the AOS CAI? Any advantages or disadvantages known?
Thanks again.

Some peeps seem to like the AOS but it is not a true CAI.

I do not think the AEM bypass valve would be needed on the AOS but what it does is opens up if your filter gets submerged in water so your engine will not hydrolock.

On the AOS intake you should not need the bypass valve. Unless you live in a heavy wet area, the bypass valve really isn't needed!

I have the AOS CAI, with no AEM bypass. If I lived in Florida or some other place with very deep puddles I'd consider a bypass. If there is a real danger that the end of the intake pipe will get submerged, but water splashing up on the air filter from the road shouldn't be a danger.
Cottonmouth, you have an AOS with no bypass as well don't you?

Alright, you got me there Autobot. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Why wouldn't be the AOS kit a true CAI? Because it doesn't direct a cold air flow direct into the filter? or because the cone is exposed right at the engine bay?

Ok to answer your question Zman
A By pass valve sucks in air when your regular filter at the end of your intake is submerged in water.
I have the AOS CAI, it DOES sit pretty low to the ground, like when I jack up my car, and I get underneath it, its right in my face, Its a very good CAI, Good in performance and souns. Get the bypass Valve if you live in a wet climate and have alot of puddles.

Sorry for double posting, something is wrong with the edit button, but this is my engine bay with the AOS CAI. Very nice system, I didn't want to spend much on intake anyway hence because of turbo. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Yup<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

A true CAI will not suck air from near the engine. It will locate the filter some where such as the fenderwell. This is what KORE does with their CAI. This does not mean the AOS is a bad intake. Infact it seems that most people are happy with their purchase. I personally would still go with the KORE CAI but it is a little more $$$.

Hope all this helps.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

The location where the AOS intake grabs it's air is a very good one for keeping the air cool. It is away from the engine and recieves lots of cool air from the air flow under the car.

Just because the intake doesn't take air from inside the fender well doesn't mean it isn't a CAI...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I have the aos and cut a little piece out of the shroud on bottom to let more air in through the cone. The best thing is it it EASY to install.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Anything is a lot better than the Weapon R one, unless you are just putting a filter on the end of your MAFS.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

OK, getting serious again, here where I live it N E V E R rains, it looks a little like Vegas (though, I don't know if it rains in Vegas, when I went it was summer and it wasn't raining). The point is, hydrolock only occurs when filter is submerged, but what happens if you pass through some water spilled on the ground, the splashed water could be dangerous to the engine or is it stopped by the cone?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

NO that filter you have to remember is OIL-COATED<img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> so truely the water will just beed off. My intake sits right in the fenderwell and the splash guard is not there, and I have had not problems.

I also am running a SAFC and I can get my air flow readings. I have noticed that with the bypass valve off I have had a 8% air flow increase.

Ralph thanks
