    That's why it's called the "Deck Plate" mod. If you get worried about water getting in, simply screw in the deck plate and you're covered.

    Only if its submerged will water get in the engine. Spray wont get in any more than a CAI, which doesnt hurt anything.

    Iam running the airaid intake tube with the AFE prodry drop in filter.My question is Am I getting the same gains in HP & MPG as I would get if I did the deck plate mod?

    Probably, possibly even slightly better. The idea is that the DPM gives gains of a CAI without the cost, and it allows you to close off the box if you plan on going through a swamp.

    Just curious when it says add a "bead" of silicone to the deck plate does that mean one drop at some point on it or a line of it around the whole thing?
