-Good point. SOME water is not a great thing, but not the engine-killer that a full cylinder of water woudl be. I've splashed a little water into an old car, and had it stutter a bit, but nothing a 106k mile rustang LS couldn't handle...which is to say not a whole hell of a lot. Still, the cone filter on the TB thing seems like arbitrarily 2nd-guessing the basic design of the intake, and I can't see any reason to do that. You get a decent supply of cool air by simply removing the snorkus and blocking off the fender well. That's absolutely free, arguably legal, and at least won't have Officer Friendly asking pointed questions when you get pulled over for having done absolutely F'K All.


-did I wander a bit?
