the most probable cause of the engine not starting is probably water in the distributor, or water in the electrical system. i guess let it air dry overnight to make sure there is no water in the system. many things may have happened but i think the distributor is flooded, thus not giving spark to ignite the engine to start. check it out. hope everything is cool.

Sounds like it time to get daddy to buy you the is300. That was your plan right? Just kidding. I do believe the water got into the electrical. Wait a day and see what happens.

Double check with your dealer that both fans are supposed to be running normally.

If you shorted something with the water then you might have blown a fuse.

This is the wrong place to be asking techincal questions about Mitsubishi products!!!
[hint: Go find a Mitsubishi forum]
