    Week before: Long story short. Rained. Pulled into garage. Turned off car. Approximately a cup full of water pours out of driver side fender well (Right where the CAI is located). Upon noticing my car regurgitating water, I drained and changed the oil that night and replaced the plugs. (no...

    Hey guys, I searched around the forum for something similiar to the problems I'm having but didn't find anything. My apologies if I missed something. So here's what happened to my 06 base.

  4. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So about a year ago I went through a deep puddle and the car stalled. After a couple of time I was able to crank it back up and there was a bunch of white smoke at first but I was able to drive it home (it stalled a couple more times, and didn't want to go over 4,000 RPMs). A day or two later...

    Yesterday I got stuck in some pretty heavy rain, it was also humid as hell, I was going up hill and the car starts to bog down a little and my Q300 got a really deep tone to it.

    Hey all, So I almost destroyed my engine a few weeks back by sucking up water into it via my AEM CAI. I was thinking about going back to stock but I don't want to lose the benefits of a CAI and I hear SRI are very loud and I don't want that either. Any suggestions on a quality CAI where the air...
