    On any model, it isn't that hot of an idea... The rather modest
    performance increases (if any) are counteracted by an increased
    propensity for problems, especially during rather wet weather with
    large puddles...

    It's unlikely to cause much in the way of problems, but unlikely to give
    you any noticeable benefit either. Most cars already draw in relatively
    cool air once the car is moving.

    Honda specifically warns against the use of cold air intakes in the April
    '05 issue of Honda Service News.

    lol... CAI performance gains on a CRV?

    In all seriousness, if you install the true CAI you will have to drop it
    low, where driving in the rain will cause potential hydrolock issues.

    If you go with the short ram CAI, it is more of a Hot Air Intake since
    it will be under the hood where the temperature of the air running
    through the short ram can be as much as 45 degrees F over the factory
    air box! In other words, the short ram intake system will generally
    HURT performance!

    The OP should just install a snorkel, he'll get cooler intake air and
    water protection.
