Actually if you go through fast enough, the car "gets out of the way" before the water has time to splash up into the engine compartment. And no, the lesson to be learned here is NOT to go faster when approaching a puddle!

I'm going to do what I have always done when it rained, since getting the Injen Intake... I think i might take the Celica out and go out sliding around in the water (and pickup a bag of doritos chips while I'm at it)

I love my Injen thumbsup
