Need help with which ccv kit to buy

One is for cold climate package? I believe my car has the cold weather package ( headlight washers/heated seats) but I'm wondering what the difference in the actual fitment is?

^ obviously this doesn't come with the valve, but in the description it states " not for models with cold climate version"

Mango/jfrof where ya at?

Thanks-

The Cold Climate version is the same as the other one, only the cold climate version as insulation around the hoses.

You don't need a certain package to run it, nor does your car need to be in a 'cold climate' all it's life. It's just insulation around the hoses that gives it it's name. The insulation is supposed to help condensation and moisture buildup from freezing up and blowing out your ccv

If you don't live in a cold climate then you could get by with the regular version no problem. From what I hear it's easier to install too.

Not knowing where you are makes it difficult to say if you need cold weather version or not...if you're in Canada or Siberia...probably a good idea. It is a pitb getting it in with the foam. I got cold weather kit and removed insulation from it. My old one was regular and it did fine. So far, years later, I'm still fine.

You don't need it unless you live above the South Dakota line
