Cold Air Intakes and Snow and Debris
I have read a few threads where members have encountered snow building/caking up their intakes during snow storms. It appears to have happened with the OEM filter box as well as some of the aftermarket CAI kits.
If you have encountered this, can you please share what CAI or OEM filter box you were running, what the environment was (how deep and wet the snow), what you did to either temporarily or permanently avoid this from happening.
I just got my 10 F250 and had a plow installed. I am in the process of choosing a tuner, staying with the OEM filter and filter box, using a drop in filter in the OEM box, or going with a S&B or AFE CAI. At this point in time, I plan to be running a 250 or lower tune but I keep hearing good things about the Kem 275 tune as a daily driver tune.
With the 2 snow storms of over 24" we received last winter, I am trying to be proactive as I don't want to be stranded on the side of the road during a blizzard because the engine can't breath or for any other reason.
Thanks for sharing.....
