i would think the stock underpanel would be right below where a bottom mounted open air filter would sit. It wouldnt have any effect from water but sitting lower in the engine bay will result in more heat soak unless it had a complete enclosure and an opening coming out the bumper. So unless your running into a 2ft wall of water youll be ok. I personally saw your setup, it looks pretty effecient
