That was me. New Era has two styles. The one I have, OTR (Over The Radiator) and the regular cone style. The OTR moves the intake right under the hood vents, and water started to collect inside the intake.

Buddy of mine had the new style and lost his engine also.

I had the new style done as well. After a good rain decided to check it all out. Found water in it still. I ordered a Vararam and threw the New Era CAI in the trash.
