Diy intake question

I just did the diy intake on my 02 7.3. I use the truck in the winter for commercial plowing. After doing it I was wondering if the filter will get covered in snow in the winter? Anyone have expierience with this? If its a issue I will just buy a airraid or something lol

What is the part number of the filter you used? There are water resistant Donaldsons and then there's the plain Napa filter that isn't water resistant.

Napa was out of stock and couldn't order them. So localy carquest cross referenced it to a wix 46637 filter. No idea if its water resistant

the only time I've ever filled mine with snow was driving 30+ miles in a blizzard and busting drifts 3-4 deep most of the way, to get home. and then the whole engine bay was filled. I banged the snow and Ice off it and let it dry out in the house. I do keep a spare on hand so I could still use the truck while that filter thawed. even the water resistant ones can fill between the pleating with snow if it's bad enough.
