Originally the scoop fit under the hood sucking in fresh air (and potentially rain/water) into the fender area where it would meet up with the silencer/snorkus that is designed to separate air and water. I don't have the snorkus installed anymore so I am worried that the water will follow the air path and get into the intake.
