yea i had a different car, and it did suck up alot of water bc i did try to get through a puddle that didnt seem deep then it got deep. I was looking at the perrin CAI and they "claim" that their CAI works with the stock ecu without any tuning. I read this al off the product page on their website. This is their exact words
With this said, it is very important to note that our intake is OK to bolt onto a stock tuned ECU vehicle. It is NOT OK to bolt onto a car with a custom tuned ECU vehicle. Because the intake does change how the car runs on a tuned map, we do offer Specific PERRIN custom tuned maps for our intake.
Also how far down in the wheel well does the CAI go? which kind do you have? I just want to be safe and make sure i dont suck up water, i love this car
