as that filter sits now it seems it would swallow a bunch of water.
i would prefer my intake pipe not act as a rain spout.
id just prefer the intake run downwards rather than up as this one does.
you guys who hose out the engine bay better make sure you
protect the filter.

Did you remove your hood or something? If water is entering your engine bay you might want to check your seals.

As far as hosing down an engine bay, an intake filter is the last thing I'd worry about. Filters are oiled to repel water. The electrical connectors will give more trouble. Who hoses their engine bay down with the engine running and at WOT? That's the only way you'd be sucking water in.
