DIY intake in the winter?

I was on my way home and we were getting hammered with snow and wind in mid-Michigan yesterday. I plowed a couple of drifts (not intentionally since the kids were with me) and the serpentine belt started squealing. It eventually quit but when I got home I popped the hood to make sure it was still there. I noticed my air filter was packed with snow. Anybody ever change back to the stock air box in the winter?

well here, i dont see snow, much, lol. but anyway if you have a marine rated version of the filter i know you'd be ok(baldwin is, maybe donaldson too?) anyway I can see your concern, but if you didnt suck anything in and you dont go plowing drifts all the time, i wouldnt worry about it.

Donaldson..The 085046 filter is for high humidity applications. This has little to do with the hydrophobic capabilities and deals with micro biotic growth since constant high humidity, think of boats that are always in the water moored to a dock, will have greater abilities for mold and such to develop on them.

It should be noted that the 085046 filter is a LOT more expensive and there is no air flow or hydrophobic benefit over the 085011.
