Last month my girlfriend must have thought she was a captain in the navy and decided to take my car through about a 2-3 ft wall of water during a flash flood. She calls me up in the middle of this storm saying the car 'stopped' and 'wouldn't turn back on.' Before I even got there I knew what had happend, and the large oil slick under the car just confirmed it. She'd hydrolocked it bad enough to send a rod right through the side/bottom of the block. Now, I'm sure that the Injen I had on it didn't help, but I think judging by the fact that I had water in my trunk, it would've happend anyway. In the end, my insurance had to pay for a whole new engine and some interior work. I just got it back yesterday and it is surprisingly OK. I expected some moldy smell in the interior and for the engine not to be 'right' but so far so good. I'd really hate for this to happen again (as I'm sure my insurance would too) and it just keeps raining, but I also really don't want to take the Injen off (love the sound). I'm wondering if anyone has any experience installing the AEM bypass valve on an Injen, CPE, K&N, etc. I'm thinking of just cutting the intake right near the TB and splicing it in there. I'm just concerned with the diameter of the bypass vs the Injen.
