Default For those worried about water/mud/etc and Vararam

Well it finally rained for 2 days straight yesterday and today, I tested out to see how high the water hit on the Vararam for u guys worried about it coming into the grill. These pics are after driving on the interstate going 80mph while it was raining, down a dirt road, and hitting a nice puddle. As you can see from the pics it only came up on the first plate and not even all the way, most of it probably has to do with the angle at which it is but here's the pics. Sorry i would test the snow but it doesnt snow very often in Alabama esp. since it was 62 degress f yesterday.



Thanks again Steve and Vararam for a great product

Not the greatest pics, but it was almost dark and still raining. Water made it up on the radiator tray, but none in the air lid. The filter didn't have any water on it.

I am really thinking about getting one of these. I live in North West Washington, and it rains ALLLLL the time here. I am just a lil worried about the water. I see in your pics that the water isn't getting up to the filter, but am just a lil worried about it. I do a lot of freeway driving down to oregon for quad trips, and it just makes me a lil nervous about it...What do you guys think....? Thanks

The filter is oiled to keep water out. I went through a Seattle like rain the other day and nothing up by the filter, but the front lip was soaked.

Hey Timmy, after digging all around, I finally found an answer to the Vararam filter question that I had. So the question becomes... Is it better to have a dry filter or an oiled filter? I though a lot of the negative comments regarding "other" CAI systems was their use of "oiled filters". I had a K&N CAI on my F-150 and its oiled filter was always collecting debris, whereas the CAI's on my Turbo PT and my Wrangler use "dry filters" and seem to stay cleaner longer.

I'm just asking,...and I'm not trying to fire off a debate or hi-jack of this thread, I just want to know your (and others here) comfort level with having an oiled filter.

There both fine, dry filters can catch smaller particles, but a properly oiled filter is fine. If you over oil a filter, it cuts down on airflow. I prefer the esae of dry filters. Now I have oiled!
