Moving to HOT climate! Which air induction?

As of right now, the X is stock (<2 wks old). I just got orders to Tucson, AZ, but still wanted to order some parts before I leave Cali. As far as air filters, CAI's, and short rams go, which one would be ideal for the hot temps down there in upper Mexico?? Thanks.

Stick with the stock air intake system. It's extremely dirty here and *all* of the foam type filters really suck at filtering dirt. They flow more air, but suck at getting the fine dust/dirt out of the air charge.

And it really doesn't get that hot here. It's ten degrees hotter in Phoenix.

I live in tx and am thinking about getting a mishimoto radiator, and while I'm at it I might as well replace the intercooler and piping right? I mean why take the bumper off more then once right? Will aftermarket radiators work with aftermarket intercoolers?

What does this have to do with him getting an intake?

...hot climate... It may be something else to consider to keep your car running cool in hot weather. I'll contribute to the thread: just get a drop-in that does not sacrifice filtration.
