I'm fairly new to speed tuning cars and have an 04 Accord Ex v6 coupe with straight 2.5" piping from the cat-back ending with flowmaster original 40s, but I was looking to install a cold air intake. I want to install a AEM with a bypass filter, but I wasn't sure if the gains are worth the risk of hydrolock. Like are the gains in horsepower and/or mpg worth the risk of hydrolock? Or is there any real risk with the bypass filter installed. AEM also offers a dryflow hydrophobic bag that can further protect the filter from water and dirt, does anyone know if this filter bag reduce airflow? Thanks

I've been running a K&N CAI for almost 2 years now (w/o a bypass) and have had absolutely no issues. Just my 2 cents. And if your worried about hydrolock, just opt for a Short Ram.
