truck dies in the rain

I have an 02 with 204000 miles, and recently put a new compressor wheel on my turbo and swapped the exhaust housing for the 38r 1.0 a/r and now my truck doesn't seem to like the rain anymore. It's not sucking water in the intake and all the plugs around the turbo are well away from water and well plugged in.

make sure you have good grounds, both on the motor(each side of block) and on the fire wall. Water will cause a bad ground resulting in a loss of power to electrical system.

Hmm ok. Will do. I have owned the truck since 06 and I've never had this problem until recently, I just pulled the turbo out and installed the gt38r 1.0a/r housing and did the whistlin wheel. But I can't imagine that having anything to do with my problem. It is frustrating knowing I have this issue and trying to dodge the rain. Thanks for the advise, ill check it out and post my findings.

You might have loosened something when you were installing that stuff. I would go back and check anything near where you were working.

Have you checked to see if road splash is getting up into your IDM connector, or your PCM connector?

Forgot to mention, there has been a known issue with some Cam position sensors causing poor engine performance when the windshield wipers are on. Sounds crazy but apparantley the wiper motor can interfere with the signal from the cam sensor.
