Derek,Derek said::lol: I live in Hawaii, so snow is not really an issue with my setup. As for water, I've driven through some very heavy storms and flooded roads without any problems. I believe AEM sells an air by-pass valve that solves the water (hydro-lock) problem; should also work for snow situations as well.
Makes sense! 8)Derek said:Hey Sig, Interesting reading how that one reviewer said that his intake sucked up water like a giant straw; and his engine was flooded with water. :shock:
Now that I think about it, my custom intake has an extra little tube that was supposed to be used for the valve cover vent hose. I opted to not plug it up.
Therefore, theoretically my intake can not act as a giant straw because there is a hole on the intake tube between the air scoop and filter. For example, take a drinking straw and puncture a hole into it and try to suck liquid through it. You can't, because there is not enough pressure to create a vacuum. I just hope that I do not cross a deep puddle to test my hypothesis. :lol:[/img]
