    Standing water and FMIC

    Is there any danger driving through puddles with a front mount?

    technically, driving through a big cuddle will help cool your FMIC down further if you're on the beans, although the thermal shock to the rest of the system will most likely do more harm

    Air going into the engine lives INSIDE the fmic.. air/water passing thru the OUTSIDE of the fmic is OUTSIDE

    This is along the lines of:

    "poured water and sand into my intake to port the cylinder head, now the engine won't start"
