Zoodad mod question.

I've got all the stuff together to do this mod but just haven't had the time. While setting in the car wash the other day I got to thinking about this big hole sucking in air and the water that is being sprayed directly onto the front of the truck. I'm sure this is no big deal but just got me to thinking.

My truck has been running that way for about 150K miles and never had a problem. Been through everything from Texas toad stranglers to a 3 hour 5" rain with never an issue. Just make sure you're running the blue donaldson synthetic filter and not the white paper one.

I have been in some rain heavy enough to scare me and nothing (that I know of) ever happened. I never even avoided the area when washing my truck. And I have gone through drive thru car washes where it pulls you along the track with my engine running and nothing ever happened (that I noticed). This is with both stock and aftermarket filters. I did find some rather large bugs when I went to clean it.

Long time ago when I put a turbo kit made by Hypermax on my 1989 7.3 it came with an adapter where you cut a hole into the space in front of the windshield where the wiper mechanics are for the air intake. This position always kept driving rain from being drawn in as the louvers were not directly above the spot where the intake was drawing from. Like to see someone figure out how to do this with the 6.0 with it's cramped under the hood space.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

On mine I have a permanent fine metal screen. Then when it is the rainy season I slap on a 1/4" foam sheet that has velcro on the 4 ends of it on the out side of the zoodad hole.

I have a fine screen over mine and have never had a problem even in torrential rains at 70mph.

I don't have mine installed yet

but I don't see it being that much a problem at all... but then again I guess it really depends on what kind of "screen" you put on there
