    I can tell you that you wouldn't! Unless you're changing to a car style MAF or something.

    Have you guys tested this in rain? I'd be REALLY worried about hydrolocking the engine with this intake.

    An engine can eat a little water when it's running. It's when it's NOT running and water gets in that it's a problem. (See New Era OTR CAI circa 2010)

    Define "little." I'm running Vararam atm and the way its been raining here in Texas i avoid using the car. Had to switch back to stock intake just to have a peace of mind.

    I drove my GT in torrential down pours with a Vararam with ZERO issues! My car was a DD and saw rain, snow, sleet... You name it, and it saw it!

    Like any intake, you don't want to be fording rivers!
