My IS is dropped 2" and has an Injen intake. Do I have to worry much about hydrolock issue? Should I just install the stock intake system back for the Winter? I live the the Nortwest so we get alot of rain plus a few weeks of snow here and there.

Thanks for the help!

Hey man very nice looking IS u got there. So is it your daily driver? If so I guess really not much to worry about for me.

Unless you made your own intake and the filter element is behind your bumper or something, you should have no problems.

Hydrolock occurs when the filter element becomes submerged in water, and it gets sucked into the engine. If you've got an Injen intake, and you're filter is submerged, your car is fucked anyway....
