Halfway through jb3 pin out install, it starts pouring!!

NOOOO!!

I just removed the cowl when it started pouring like crazy! Stupid Texas weather...

So i quickly threw the air filter back in, wasnt able to screw it in tho and closed the hood.

i also put towels where the windshield meets the hood.

i should be okay right??

As long as an Armadillo doesn't get under the hood and relieve itself down your intake, your good.

Meth kit, stett charge pipe, jb3, dci. Took me maybe and hour. And this time only the radar detector because I have it hardwired and my sunroof isn't working properly so I don't want them blaming it on that.
