More like a short ram hot air intake lol. But the Dyno says it works? Then again the hoods open :D

I say check the deal section and by a bwoody on sale right now for the first 10 customers, it's a true CAI as well. Around the same price, so it's your choice ;) BTW, I'll be getting my bwoody Friday and installing.

Was looking at this myself only because I have concerns about water and the bwoody. Torn between the two

Oiled filter plus a dry charger = no worries. Just don't drive into deep standing water were the entire filter is submerged and you'll be fine.

Living in the south we have heavy downpours and standing water on the road
Enough so I think it could be problematic

I haven't measured, just an educated guess, but the filter bottom sits about 12" off the ground give or take a little.

What about Stage 6? They have a CAI in the works, waiting on the production facility last I heard. Filter is in a similar location, but is complete with a heat shield ;) Also, I remember them saying there is an opening in the fender to let more cool air in...

Bwoody made awesome results on the WK1 with a similar (same) design. I ran the Volant on my WK1, but since they don't have one in R&D yet bwoody it is for me for the WK2. I like true cold air intakes, on the WK1 it was Volant and bwoody FTW. Plus the bwoody makes nice eye candy when you pop the hood :D

Would the hood vents make a difference? Would the short design get air through the hood in the wk2 in a manner that it couldn't in the wk1. The video had the hood open but it also wasn't moving so depending on flow through the hood it could t
heoretically be more than 11 right?

I'm sure the jeep had fans pushing air while being dynoed. They normally do.

The hood vents create a pressure difference to suck hot air out of the engine bay. So I doubt it'll suck air in while in motion. Standing still maybe a different story. Also, with the CAI next to the hood vent it may always be heat soaked since hot air will be pulled out of the hood vent next to the filter element. That's just a thought.

I live in Seattle where as Im sure you all know, it rains. A lot! I had a Bwoody intake on my car for nearly two years. The only reason I took it off was because a Procharger replaced it. If you drive with a modicum of common sense when it is raining and there is potentially standing water you will be fine with a Bwoody intake.

I never used a dry sock either.....

That's right! I saw that post a couple of weeks ago, another possibility! decisions, decisions, decisions...

Stage 6 has their intake coming real soon. You can see it in one of the posts in the WK2 intake section. No potential for rain damage and also utilizes a heat shield.

I was skeptical of the 11HP claim because the hood is open, then I found this clip of the baseline run. Maybe it is legit. What kind of gains is expected from the other options?
