    Just last month I was driving through water up past the bottom of the doors on my focus haha. That would scare me. That was on my hill. The road, on top of the hill, was flooded. We had a bit of rain.

    I'd route it above the exhaust for a WAI and better fuel economy.

    It all depends on the length of the intake, throttle opening, and the amount of the filter that is underwater. If only a portion of the filter is under water, but there is enough suction in the intake, it can suck water into the engine even though the filter is not completely submerged.


    I've got a bent connecting rod in my garage from a hydrolocked motor. Luckily it was not mine. It was from a friend's SRT-4. Not a cheap fix either.

    There is no part number. You'd have to buy the whole intake box or at least the half with the MAF housing, if they sell it like that.

    If you are like me and didn't get the fog light package you could simply pop out the plastic piece and run your filter in that general area allowing for some pretty cool are to hit it...just one idea

    The MAF sensor housing is built into the air cleaner box.

    More info here:

    Developing a MAF sensor housing for custom air intakes


    If you're looking for a MAF sensor housing for aftermarket intake, look here:

    Wait, are you saying it loss power in low end too? or were you saying OEM actually lacks low end torque because of how the OEM intake was mounted?

    I actually have to recant my initial statement. I believe my initial results were attributed to the car having such low mileage from the which the ECU adjusted it's tune.

    It does still lose some bottom end power, although not much, but mid-range gains a good bump and top end a slight raise in power. I only noticed this when comparing the setups when the car was over 20000kms, whereas before it was really low. Alos, in that time I changed from Sunoco 94 (10-15% ethanol) to Shell 91 (100% gasoline).

    Could you describe at around what rpm the gain/loss were? I mainly aimed to increase the torque around 2500-3500 rpm, since that's pretty much the sweet spot of where the CVT operates. And on highway, it almost never reaches under 2000 rpm. Do you also have scangauge to see whether it runs more efficient?
