    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 :laugh:

    you are bleached to a cinder blonde dude...

    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"

    Made my evening, thank you!
