    In my two t/a's ive owned, ive done all the free ram air mods and then some. On my old t/a, i lived on the east coast and would drive in hurricane force rain on the highway no problem. Out here in az where speed limits are higher ive driven in heavy rain at 70+ mph with the free ram air mods ( baffles removed, ect) and, on top of that, made my own bigger under the car bottom feeding ram air duct. never a problem

    I bought my car from a guy in FL and he supposedly hyro'd it at 20k mi. I have the carfax to prove it got a warranty engine then. He said it was freeway driving in a heavy down pour with the slp lid and scoop.

    First thing I did when I got the car was to take that stupid scoop off. All it does is block the radiator, trap dirt in the rad, and clog up the filter with dirt. I dont buy any "ram air hp" bs with that thing, just a dumb CAI.

    I agree, I've had it done for years without a problem. I think what happens is you get a handfull of people that have tried to drive accross deep water, and the air dam acts like a shovel pushing water right into the air box.
    You would have to be moving pretty steady to accomplish it though. I personally don't drive through water like that, turn around and wait for it to reside or find another way around. With common sense like that I've never had an issue.

    Even with your lower scoop removed you will still have access dirt directed toward the filter, because if the lower scoop was there, that means someone has already cut the upper shroud (aka free ram air mod)

    I've had my SS to the track, which already had a functional hood, and even at that I found the free ramair mod was worth a bit. And I also have the SLP air duct on one of the cars. In particular the one I tested.
    If you don't believe in it, it's simple to find out. I went to the track and made several runs, then duct taped the upper shroud shut under the filter, then made several more runs. I could not duplicate the MPH or ET I was running before. Try it,,,,it might surprise you. I know I was. Especially considering all the people that told me it was a useless mod on an SS with a functional hood.

    Well that's my thought too. To actually shovel water with the air dam straight up a good 1-1 1/2 feet to reach the air box and be sucked in through the filter you have to be trying pretty damn hard.
    Either that, or they are simply driving in water that is as deep as the air box is high

    Either way, even thinking of driving through flooded roadways in a sporty type of car that is barely 6 inches off the ground even at stock ride height is beyond comprehension for me.

    I've never personally hydrolocked an LS1, but that's how I got my WS6. The lady I bought it from hydrolocked it by driving through a 2-3ft. flooded road (dumb bitch). I'm currently in the process of trying to pull the engine out and replace it.

    Ya 2-3 feet,,,,that would be enough to do it

    I can't believe people would even consider trying that. I wouldn't even drive our 4x4 blazer through that crap, just for fear of being washed away before I reached the other side. What the hell is wrong with people.

    haha the thumbs up and hydrolock in the same sentence
    People have hydrolocked w/o it, I have the ssra and my biggest complaint is if you park to close to the curb it hits and eventually breaks. I have driven through some puddles I would rather not have with it, but the best remedy is to block it off in the rain. Then there is no problem.

    OOPS last year.

    I know alot of the "puddles" around here look deceiving and are ALOT deeper than they would seem.

    Yep, that's why law enforcement tell people all the time, don't drive through standing water, you simply can't tell how deep it really is. Turn around and find another path.
    But people don't listen, and when ever there is excessive rain there is someone making the 6 o'clock news

    Yep, especially in Downtown Charleston. Putting a city on a coastal peninsula was a good idea for the 1700s I guess for all of the shipping and all. But nowadays, all of the roads flood whenever it rains. Sometimes just when it's high tide. You're really fucked if it pours down rain at high tide. That's when you can kayak down your street, lol, which I have actually watched people do.
