Scariest day of my life while driving my car...
For some damn reason it started pouring rain like a mother [censored] today while I was at school. So when I get out of school to go home (20 min drive) it is still pouring and the roads are flooded. Now, seeing that I have a CAI I was scared as hell because I've never driven in rain this bad with my CAI on. So I get on the freeway an quickly switch to 5th gear going 50 mph. I'm just cruising along when all of a sudden my car starts to vibrate like hell and make a loud ass noise coming from the engine. So I quickly swith to neutral and roll off the freeway and turn off my car and just sit there until I decided to try it again.

So I went again and off and on it kept doing the same thing, but I decided to just get home as soon as possible. When I got off the freeway (about 5 minutes from home) there were mini lakes all over the damn city and I had to go through them. I was scared shitless because I was going through deep ass puddles with my CAI. Finally I got home and hopefully nothing happened to my engine. I will see tomorrow.

Sometimes I wonder why I even got a CAI. frown

damn man... You should take off the CAI and see if there is any water in it? and check out the throttle body too.
