Default I need a new intake for my 06 Camry

I'm in the market for new intake, but i don't know if i should get cold air or short ram. Any suggestion between the 2?

If it rains where you are get the short ram. The CAI will put your intake into puddle land. If you drive through a large puttle you better have the pypass valve or your engine is going to break some rods trying to suck in that water.

Don't worry about hydrolock, which is what happens when your intake gets tons of water in it. Your car would litterally need to be flooded to the headlights and running to get hydrolock. I drove around my city with a cold air intake in my Honda for almost a year, and my town it rains 80% of the summer/spring/and fall. Don't let it hold you back!

All depends on where the CAI would sit. If it sits low to the ground I don't advise it.

I can only find this one, which is compatible with the 05 Camry. I'm pretty sure the 06 Camry is the same as the 05. So this intake would fit?

If the land is completely flat then I doubt you will have this problem. I live in phoenix and know it can be a problem when monsoon comes around. Its just rolling through the puddle that is about 6inches deep creates a 1 foot wake. In my car and Cdubs car, it is deep enough to cause hydrolock. If he gets his car lowered he should get the bypass valve. I think that 50 bucks now is cheaper than 1500 bucks later. It will also give him the assurance that he can go out in the rain if he needs to.

My CAI was probably 4 inches from the ground maximum. And it rains all the time here. It's really not a problem, unless there is a flood in which case you wouldn't be driving anyway. However for some peice of mind, just pick up a short ram system, if you are really worried. Make sure it has a heat sheild though, or it will be sucking in hot air from your engine, which defeats the purpose.

Some places you will get low to the ground. I have a friend in my car club who had to replace two cylinder sleeves and two rods because of hydrolock. His del sol was not lowered. it just happens that the wash he was drving through was too deep. but he said he went through it because everyone else made it fine. He should get a CAI if he wants. It is up to him. I just think he should know that it can happen. Just because it has not happened to you does not mean it is impossible.

The purpose is less restriction and colder air. most intakes are put in the corner where there is colder air. A heat shield is easy to make and does a good job. If you have a nibbler it can be made out of a old computer case

Mikey,
How do you like your new Camry? You got any pics? Is the 06 the redesigned model?
