hah yeah.. well when it rains outside i put a bag over it when its parked, and when i drive home during the rain im not too worried about it, with the heat, and the fact that we have that 2nd filter on our throttle bodies i don't see it getting too much water in the intake.. though i would like to have the gruppe M intake..

just rig up a piece of lexan under the opening, then its still clear and visible into the engine, but you are protected from rain.

Even if his filter would get completely soaked to the core with water, it still wouldnt even affect his engine in the slightest. the amount of water a filter can hold, combined with the speed air moves through an intake, pretty much makes it water vapor, which then steam cleans all the carbon out of your cylinders. a little water is good for your engine, sucking up a whole puddle with a low mounted CAI is bad...
