    Soggy Ram Air

    I was curious about how well the ram air hood holds up in the rain. I've been looking at getting an aftermarket hood and see the superhawk, SLP H.O. and raptors are pretty straight into the filter. Does water get into those easier and can that cause me any engine problems?

    I have a debaffled Factory Ram Air Hood that's been on the car for 8 yrs and I've never had a problem with water on the filter. And my car is Daily Driven in all Weather conditions. Same goes for the FRA mod.

    Thats actualy a crock of crap and effectivly slows you down due to areo dynamic drag. Those guys thatd rive around with no hood on, just think they are cool, or is suffering from over heating. No advantages gained in removing the hood.

    I know I was just messing with his head, the only time I seen a cars without a hood was the fast and furious movies, once this one integra tried that at the local drag strip, and I took a hood off of a honda because this dude was running his mouth.
