2001 V6 Mustang... Cold Air Modification

Yo Yo, its winter in Sacramento, and startin to raaaaiiiinnnnn......

yummy im slip slidin all over the place.

so heres the scoop. i was a gonna take my BBK cold air intake off and put the stock back on for winter. Just for the rain and all. Then i got to thinkin, how bout just slip that air filter on right before the Mass Air Flow Sensor inside the hood.

Essentially, take the original set up:

throttle body-pipe-MAF-pipe-Filter (outside the hood)

and change it to:

TB-pipe-MAF-filter (inside the hood)

Just wanted to know what you guys thought. Never really get any responses to my stuff but this is kinda important so whateva helps.

Im just hopin it aint gonna mess with my MAF or any problem in the engine.

Should be fine though, kinda like a short ram.

i would leave it as is,it will not pull in water..i have only seen like the little ricer cars do this when the filter is so close to the ground or in the grill.your setup should be safe.

Cherish those around you,for at the blink
of an eye,they can be gone.

Im with everyone else, you should be fine, I have the same intake kit and live in colorado. Last winter we had more snow and slush than almost any other on record and it ran great.
