Reassurance? Just close your eyes and pull the trigger!

Slap a K&N sock over it if your really worried. Check out STS turbos or any rear mount. thats alot of money riding out there open to the elements and I havn't heard of failures due to the elements.

I thought about the same thing when I did my cam, headers, etc........ I do drive through some puddles here and there so I felt it to be a lot safer to do the standard 4" intake. The minor loss over the fenderwell intake I make up in peace of mind knowing that I can drive through water if I had to.

Just my 2 cents

Chris, I'm in FL where it rains constantly and I've yet to have any problems. As long as you don't submerge the filter you won't have to worry.

I'm in pa to bud, and I felt the same way with mine. At first it kept acting up but a quick spray of cleaner on the maf always cleared it right up. And now I haven't had any issues in a few months!

It poored like a mofo one day on my way home from work and I started to not down shift when i put my foot down. Took it easy all the way home. Later on I opened the whole thing up and I had pulled water all the way to the throttle body. Sprayed some maf cleaner and dried out the intake changed back to a aem dryflow with a k&n water sock or whatever its called havent had problems with that one. I guess the cotton ones just plain old eat ass.

To tell you the truth i have been through multiple car washes since having it installed and no problems yet, even with the under spray. Now keep in mind i drive over the underspray very fast till the filter is cleared then i slow down and then when you stop i turn the truck off and let her sit until i need to start it up again. I was worried too in the beginning too but just like others say dont go through or near standing water!

Depends which filter you use. once you have the filter part number you can look up the correct sock on K&N's site.
I would look up the sock part number but i dont know what the part number for the filter is. Does anyone with this setup know what the part number of the filter that PCM uses is?
