Default 2000 Mustang 3.8L v6 Air Filter

I have to change my air filter (is a MAC), and wonder if there is a recommended brand for mustangs (K&N?).

Also my air intake is similar to the one shown in:

2000 Mustang 3.8L Coupe Pictures - 2000 Mustang 3.8L Coupe Photos - Mustang Picture Gallery - AllFordMustangs.com

But since down here we have tropical rains some friends recommended me that I should change the position of the filter to be on top (like its original position).

What do you think?

you just have to clean and recharge the filter with a K&N cleaner kit.

You don't have to worry about rain.

Is just cleaning? I have attached photos of the air filter.

Regarding water issue, tropical rain here usually floods streets for a while (4 hours maybe), so if I drive into a street with a level of water that reachs half of my wheels, shouldn't it affect the air filter that is considerably low? What is the benefit of having the filter in that position besides having it on top?
