Misfiring

We got some flooding in the local area, and being the type of person I am, I was dickin around driving through puddles. The last one I hit pretty fast, and as I was coming out of it my truck started sputtering under harder throttle. It would idle fine, but anything over 1/3 or 1/2 throttle it would misfire alot. It reminded me of a gasser with shot plugs and wires. After about a 1/4 or 1/2 mile it started running fine again. What made it misfire like that? Mind you that the puddle was big enough, and i hit it fast enough that my truck probably disappeared from the amount of water that went flying.

Water is probably getting in one of your wiring harnesses, I know when I wash my engine off with the power sprayer the temp gauge starts twitching and the truck seems to stumble for about 10 miles then it straightens right out.

DIY intake with Zoodad, huh? Is it possible with your intake to injest a slug of water when you hit the monster puddle?

Would that make it misfire under heavy throttle, yet idle smooth?
