just run the CAI into the stock airbox and open up the bottom to keep water out of the intake.

cheap. quick. easy :)

unless you have a hefty turbo, your not gona **** any water up. unless you drive your car through a river and let it sit in there.

i would smooth the stock air box. and get a panel filter, also cut out the bottom and run a tube to the bumper.

old school.

aem cold air intakes have a bypass valve thing that prevents water from getting into the intake
