    Nobody else has this problem? OK well anyways I think it's a bad thing to be having dirty water from the freeways spooging into your engine area but I guess maybe I was the only one?

    Cool idea. I don't really think its going to hurt anything getting wet though, just gets everything dirty.

    Yeah you are probably right. It's been that way for 10 years and never gave me a problem but I did it anyway just in case. Plus it's nice to have an engine stay clean longer:)

    haha just kidding, kind of. its a issue, but after some intense days of working on job sites, water somehow gets into my engine compartment anyways. I appreciate the looking out though.
