My Ride: 328i
hydrolock prevention...

I have a e46 328i with a AA level 1 supercharger. I'm considering cutting the CAI snorkel down so it sits just inside the engine bay instead of near the bottom of the front bumper to avoid the dreaded hydro-lock.

Can anyone think of any reason why this is a dumb idea? I can't imagine that the CAI actually adds a lot to the blower hp gains especially considering how warm the air gets after the compressor. Plus hydro-lock = 0 horsepower.

I'd like to hear some thoughts on my plan before I do it.
