Re: Air intake - some info, please!

I would move a fresh air intake foward to the front of the engine compartment where the air would be cooler.

The only reason why I moved (routed) it there is because I was affraid of water going in. The way it is now, water can't get in, at least not until I get in up to the windshield.
Not that I go through water that deep, it's just that I like water, and I hit it regulary, as soon as I see it (on & off the road). I got scared when I saw where the original intake was on my YJ, 'cos I just ran through a "lake" on the street, which was some 4-5" deep. I went in with some 30-40 MPH, enjoyed it a lot while water was splashing all around. And after I stopped to check if everything was all right, I noticed where thati intake was.
So I rerouted it, thinking there's no way water could get inthere. Plus, it's higher, so maybe I could hit some seriously deep water w/o having to worry about air intake.
Where should I hide it in the front, in order to stop watersplashes getting in? Behind the headlight? The grille (but the water passes there!)? Where? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
