BMS Intake

Ive had the BMS DCI installed for 2 months and i love the amazing sound it makes, but im worried about when the weather gets 90+ here in chicago, if it will be a bad idea to have it. Would the stock airbox be a better bet. Let me know what you guys think. thanks

co-sign.

only thin you really have to worry about it. 100+ degree days in traffic after running your car hard. But you're not going to over heat.

You'll be fine, but if you're worried about heatsoak just get an aftermarket FMIC.

Running hotter with this set up has proven hardly any heat soak for years.
