At the air box, I left the remains of the rubber boot and attached a correct size 'pvc' plumbing elbow [from any hardware store] on the upper end of the flex pipe. It works great. Water? The air flow isn't strong enough to pull droplets straight up, let alone it would catch on the ribbing if it could. It would take a very special drop of water to negotiate the two curves. Misty air might make it, but you'd have that with or without the low ram pick-up. The whole thing, including the K&N, was under $60.00. Hope this helps.
