There was a mod for the dodges that didn't have the foglights where you cut a hole in the bottom of the airbox and ran an air duct down to the vent. They tested it in a downpour going puddle splashing and stuff and it didn't soak up any water. This looks like the same basic concept, unless i'm mistaken. If you drive through a lot of creeks I wouldn't recommend it, but if your staying on road I don't think you would have any problems. The open airbox really help keep stuff from being sucked up into the filter, but also really only makes it effective at high speeds

That is definitely going to be the best cold air option. I wish the slot wasn't so narrow at the bottom so you could put more air through it.
