you have an SRI, correct?
the invader Hood can be a problem for you. but if you have the heat/water shield (that you can buy from this site) it shouldnt be that much of a problem.

yeah i have ask this before but i notcised to day that the stock Hood scoop dont let the water go rigth down its a plate or somthing der the scoop so the water end up longer back, and i was woundring if it was the same thing on the invader so the water ended up at the front plastic the one that is sitting on with some pop up plastick clips

(damn its low battery on the keyboard and i m missing a lot of letters becuase i must press so hard)

I think I can speak the final word on this subject.

I have had the VIS Invader Hood on my car since January.

I have had the Injen SRI on my car that entire time.

It has rained (heavily) here 70% of every month since May and I've driven in rain, snow, etc. with this combo.

No problems whatsoever. As I said though...if the car was going to be sitting outside in the rain while I was at work I'd throw something over that grill above the Intake. If you're still worried, pick up a heatshield, which I did last month.

...yes the Invader Hood comes with a plate to block off the top scoop to keep water out if that (at least mine did)

ahhhhhhhhh, haha.

sorry, i thought it was made clear earlier.
NO, there is no such piece for the second scoop on the Invader Hood. the water or snow or whatever just drains into it. as i posted earlier this didn't pose a problem and with the addition of the heat shield, just makes the water run off it and away from the Intake entirely. i am sure you could fab a piece to block that little grill but whatev... spineyes
