AFE Dynamic Air Scoops in rainy climate

My concern is waterlocking the engine. Has anyone used these in a rainy climate?

Only going to happen if you run into a puddle higher than your splitter.

Considering that our normal intakes are cold-air, you gotta ask yourself how likely it is to happen.

Get Cyba scoops and you won't have a problem...they have slots cut into the scoop to allow any water to escape from the airflow. And they're the cheapest by far.
