I drilled a small hole in the elbow that connects to the exhaust off the turbo, otherwise I used to use rubbermaid drink containers.

i just treat it like I always have, dont cover mine up or anything.

Only problem I can forsee is corroding the inside of the pipe near the elbow.

Mine only sits over night though, If I was leaving for a few weeks or something I might cover them up

even if they do it would take a week of rain at an inch an hour to fill your downpipe up enough to get it up past your turbos exh housing, the only thing you have to worry bout is all the black that will come out when it does rain and your pressure exh pushes it out
