    Im looking at getting an URD True Cold Air intake: http://www.urdusa.com/p1260518504/URD-TRUE-COLD-AIR-INTAKE,-05+-Tacoma-4.0L-V6/product_info.html?osCsid=h2c446vbuj70lkba8hmfscr6g1

    The problem Im having is deciding if i should get it or not due to the fact that I live in Alaska and it rains a ton. And with it being in the grill I think it might get too much direct moisture, and im not sure that that shield (Hydroshield) will give me enough protection.
    Also Im planning on putting in a grillcraft grill, so that will reduce water protection as well...

    Let me hear what you think?

    Thanks

    I dunno what size filter URD uses, but some companies make "hydro socks" or water covers for those cone type filters. They fit tight and still flow air great but are essentially water proof. I had one on my CAI on a scion tC here in Portland OR. Never had any issues..... until a drunk driver crashed into us.. but I think thats unrelated.
