... so many people are wanting to get a better intake air feed, but 
concerned about the ramifications :) involved with taking the intake 
from the front of the car.  Has anyone thought of the old late '60's 
trick of tapping into the high pressure area at the base of the wind-
shield?  Seems to me that would resolve your water ingestion problems 
at the same time.  You didn't need that air for the passenger compart-
ment anyway ...

Hey honey ... do you remember what I did with that old shaker hood?  ;-)
