If you are an idiot and drive through 6" or more of standing water and somehow your engine ingests a significant amount of water.

+1. You really don't have to worry about engine damage with a CAI. As said above, just don't go through small ponds worth of water and you are pefectly fine.

Not always possible. Example: last week we got some major t-storms rolling through the area dumping loads of water in a short amount of time. The road I'm on is one lane each way, hardly any shoulder, with a speed limit of 50MPH. The rain had stopped but I suddenly came up on a section of bad ponding on my side of the road that extended over into the other lane. Loads of traffic in that oncoming lane, no way for me to avoid it. Was able to slow down to about 30 but had loads of water spray up on the passenger side of the car. Thought I was in big trouble with my Cobb so I coasted the next 100ft to a red light. It's been fine, no problems whatsoever.

+1 for Cobb even though they don't make one for the '05 yet.

I don't think they are planning on one. I talked to one of the guys over there about it earlier this year.

The 05s are MAF based. Isn't there a way to modify the 98-99 models to work?

Wish I knew more about the differences to give some insight.

Sure! Just cut up some aluminium tubing that has a 45 degree bend on it. Purchase a maf adapter, the PRM (Cobb) air filter, some silicone hose (or rubber plumbing connectors from Home Depot).....connect this to the stock snorkus airbox. Cut the air box on the other end and Voila! Instant ala Cobb cold air intake.

There are a couple other manufacturers out there but the injen, though it can be a pain to install, is probably gonna give you the best results.

I meant the Cobb for the 98-99 models.

I just hit a pretty good sized puddle the other day with my Injen, which is a fabulous intake, and it is fine. The only concern i have is i do not have foglights so the majority of the water comes through there. DragonRM is right is was a freakin pain in the ass. Namely connecting filter cone to the piping.
