My cold air intake is raining

Post by Obevemall » Tue Jun 04, 2019 7:11 am

It's been raining in New York lately, and today as I was driving I could feel these weird vibrations under the seat, and then I rolled down my windows and heard like this popping noise. It sounded like I was making popcorn down there, and I got scared thinking that I got water into my throttle body. According to my mechanic, when water hits the filter or is absorbed by the filter, it kind of suffocates your car, which makes the popping noise, and raises the loudness of your exhaust. I have a Greddy Evo, and the thing is loud enuff, and while this was happening it was like I had a straight pipe bolted on. Anyways, my question to you people who have a cold air is, did you make a custom shield to put under the filter? or do you have the same problem? When my mechanic put my car on the lift I could see there was nothing between the ground and the filter. I knew that from the beginning but didn't think anything of it. Well, I'll stop talking, and help me out. Thanks
