hey all, I have a TK CAI and I'm starting to get a little nervous about snow (not to mention I think I'll be one of the people driving on a trip my friends and I are taking to Vermont at the end of the month) does anyone use a cover or some sort of extra protection they could recommend? Also how often should I take the filter off to clean it and re-oil it?

Injen makes what's called a pre-filter that slips on over your cone filter. Not sure how much they cost though

ive actually seen a little shield that covers hlaf the fliter, usually the half thats most likely going to get hit by the elements more. i think... its called a cone filter shield. look on ebay, they come in diffrent colors and styles. ya know, ill go look lol hold on

ya but those things look like a major pain in the ass to put on. you might have to remove the whole CAI or jack up the car and take the wheel off to get to it so you can put it on. the cover i posted is easy to put on. just get under the car and take off the 6 screws that hold on the piece right under the bumper and you can easily slide this on. idk maybe its easier than it looks :p

Kinda looks too big, no?
Not at all. it's the an actual OE part in Asia to cover the bottom of the engine bay. Don't know why we don't have it over here in North America.

You dont think there would be a temperature problem with that closing up some of the lower air flow?

It shouldn't if it did Hyundai wouldn't have made it. Plus none of the German cars have issues.
