    As other people have said, generally, rain and water is not a problem. The only time it is a problem is if you hit a very deep puddle (deep enough to immerse the bottom of the kit) at a high enough speed to force water vertically up the duck, overwhelm the air filter and get injected into the motor. It's very unlikely but "possible" so we advise customers of that in the advertisments and instructions.

    We do supply a block off plate with the kit that you can install if you have to drive in really bad weather. It prevents water from coming up through the duct and returns the breathing to exactly the same as stock.

    More Power for not alot more, plus sounds way better.... youll knock off more time with LT's than that system also.

    I would go LT first also. More power, better sound and such. The FTRA won't shine as good until you have a cam/heads to use the extra air coming in. That and once you have the LT to get the air out, the FTRA will get the air you need in. I will say this though, the FTRA is much cheaper then any header your going to get.

    Yup. I have th FTRA on my car, I bought it used. While it's a nice product, I noticed zero SOTP or mileage gains from it.

    I haven't track tested it yet, so I can't say 100% that it gave me no gains, but like I said, I didn't feel anything.

    I plan on track testing next week actually, so I'll post up my results.

    On the plus side, mine is a DD, and I've driven it through plenty of rain with no issues.

    Do you have the kit properly sealed up with the lower ram air plate installed? Usually when people do not see a mileage improvement or feel performance gains, it's because they did not install the lower piece and/or properly seal the kit per our instructions. These steps are very important.

    Thanks

    In looking at the FTRA, SSRA and SLP systems, frankly, I don't see any real difference between all three of them except for cost.
    And in reading threads that have been posted by members, all three give about the same results.

    Basically they are all the same, but in all honesty my pick(If you are set on this route) is the FTRA, it seems to be the most well put together/thought out kit, but overall as i stated above, my vote still goes with volant right now, i have yet to see K&N's version installed, it looks to be just a filter sitting out in the open but pictures can b misleading...

    The SLP system is not a ram air intake.

    SLP kit sits half way up the a/c consenser with no way to route the air into the air box.

    Our kit has a plate that goes right down the lower air deflector and routes air directly into the air box. Our kit also seels the airbox to allow pressure to build. The SLP kit doesn't positively seal the air box which prevents any kind of pressurized air from happening. Our kit also includes a block off plate to disable the kit. SLP does not.

    Thanks!
