Induction kit on a Ford Figo

Postby Ryan Snyman » Mon Jan 05, 2015 8:09 am

Good day everybody

Could somebody please shed some light onto the myth of the worries of hydra-lock due to a induction kit?
I recently fitted mine again and heard from some people that they pull in water in heavy rain and this in turn obviously gets into the TB and therfore into the engine?
I'm just concerned now as I am staying right by the sea as well.

Thanks in advance PS: Like I said this is what I've been told so I don't know how much truth is in it!
Live and love as if today is your last day!

Plenty engines have been lost due to CAI kits, but normally only the ones where the filter relocates to the bottom of the bumper. Ask Stu, he had first hand experience of losing his engine to this, so it is not a myth.

Induction kit on Figo is top mounted, so chances of water being pulled into motor is very minimal.

Thanks for the reply boet, So if its mounted up top by the battery and intake it won't/can't? Logically it LOOKS as if it cant get all the way up there but I just wanted to check you know.

Speaking of Stu, how's his soon to be finished cab?
Now, I admit that there are two distinguishing features that you can use to tell apart the Audi sedans. One is LEDs. The A4 has roughly seven, while the A8 could guide damaged ships to the mainland.
