Yes water does get in but it is in a place where no problems occur. I've had mine for 8 months now and I have nothing but PRAISE for it.

youll probably get just as much water in through the reverse scoop as the raised scoop. its not like a river is flowing into it. wink

Snow is probably better, but I'd recommend putting your factory Hood on during winter. It hasn't stopped raining here since May so yah, a lot of water gets in...I have a heatshield over my Injen Short Ram now but even before, water would drip onto it during the rain and it never caused any harm.

maybe you can put something inside the Hood where the grill is. like Fiberglass something to stop snow/rain from getting in

you can lay some plexiglass underneath the Hood to cover the scoop.
