Intake Scoops

Anyone ever have any problems with the intake scoops catching water/moisture. I commute and therefore do a lot of highway driving at around 85-90 mph. would i have any problems with these intake scoops if it rained heavy?

Lol, excuse his bluntness, but you have to understand. These type of questions get asked all the time. For the short amount of time that I've been on the forums, I see countless identical questions being asked over and over again.

Next time, try searching for it, and if you cant find the answer, state that you searched to no avail in your post. People won't be so harsh that way.

No problems. Btw, it does make a difference, when going like 130-140 km/hr.

It's $50-99 for a few (keyword FEW) extra ponies at high speed. That should be plenty for you to consider. I still haven't bothered with them yet.
