I had to rotate the radiator hose down a bit, and i had to get an 85mm Maf. $45 in the for sale section all the time, just make sure you have the 5-3 conversion harness for it. I also already had an 05/06 hood on my car, so it benifits from the scoops aswell. I also had to cut about 3/4 of an inch off the maf to get it to fit in there, just got rid of some non needed housing.

Meh, cars been running this intake for many yers without a hiccup from water. Im not really worried about it! Ive driven it about 4 or 5 times in the rain and it never bothered.

There are holes in the bottom of the intake pan for the water to drain out. The engine / radiator are hot enough the water mostly evaporates before that becomes any sort of real issue. Rain is a real issue on the intakes that suck air from under the car, even then its more so deep puddles than the rain it self.
