First off, I feel like a complete idiot. I always tell my wife to very careful when driving through standing water. I live in a town where the drainage is horrible, and driving from work today I ended up driving through some water that was probably a little too deep. I thought I was fine since I have the Cobb short ram intake. The water was only about half-way up the tire, but it was splashing. The splashing is what caused me the heartburn. After I got through the water, I pulled over to see if the intake was dry. Sure enough, a small amount of water had splashed onto the bottom of the intake, and it was a little damp. The car ran fine the whole time and I never got a CEL so I'm 99% sure that I'm fine. My real question is, "what is the danger of a small amount of water splashing up through the fender and onto the intake?" My understanding is that a little water in the intake isn't the end of the world as long as the intake isn't submerged in water as would have been the case today if I would have had a CAI.
Thanks for the help guys. Sorry for the long read.
