Many people are afraid of a cold air intake and hydrolock. Stop worrying. You can't get rain to hydrock any car.

When I was 20 (and stupid) I has a 79 limited edition T/A. For kicks I turned on a water hose to full (no nozzle on end) lifted off the air cleaner and cover, and put the water down the carb. Full blast out the house with a lot of water pressure. I had to give it gas to prevent it from stalling out. I just wanted to see how much water an engine could injest. It actually ran great at WOT. On a side note no damage happened, and it created a HUGE cloud of water vapor. The vapor was the coolest part of the whole experiment. LOL

So the only way I know of getting hydrolock is to run it into a pond. :rofl:
