what's the difference between just a cai and a cai w/ a bypass valve? and what's the function of the BPV?

I think the bpv ALLOWs air into the engine if your filter is sumerged in water

i'd say the BPV is a necessity in Houston.

SOME times it MIGHT be a nessisity here in vegas aswell. But it only does heavy rain once every 3-5 years

This is just my opinion, but I would feel better to have the bpv. It's better to spend the $$ on the bpv than to spend the $$ on a new engine. <img src=icon_smile_dead.gif border=0 align=middle> It's just a peace of mind knowing that you have it. <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

If you have a turbo you won't have a CAI, therefore you won't need the bypass valve cause the filter won't be anywhere near the road where it could be submerged.

Hey boss, you dont need intake with your turbo, your turbo connects it all up if you have a intercooler kit

When you have a turbo, you'll have a short intake pipe (no longer than a foot generally) connected directly to the intake turbine of your turbo. The filter will generally sit about between the block and the radiator off to passenger side of the car.
