ZOODAD CONFUSION

I was just looking at the zoodad mod, wondering if that benefits a stock air box or only an aftermarket intake ?

Well the intention is to get more cool air to your filter. So either way it should help. Does that answer your question?

If you plan on keeping that truck, you really need to atleast do a do it yourself tymar air filter. the stock box and drop in are very well known for letting dirt by, and that will "dust" your turbo and is not good for the engine either.

it would take alot of rain to do that , but i have seen trucks come in during a snow storm , and the box be quite full of snow , and turn the gauge minder on , as far as rain i think it would have to be a very heavy rain and i think you would have to be traveling on the highway to get that much water to do engine damage

It can let water in but as far as I know nobody has had any problems with any failures from it.

A little water, like when driving is not a problem. If nothing else, it will drop your EGT's...LOL....
