i would like to do this, but i'm worried about rain and snow. seems like that would be a straight shot in a good downpour or heavy snow for water to get into the intake and turbo...

I think that after the rain or snow makes it past the grill and hit the screen, its a mist and not a damaging effect

Everytime the snow or rain question comes up, everyone who has driven through it and has a zoodad mod says it stays dry and they've never had any problems soo.

The problems that I had with the mod were when I was following someone when it is raining. The mist from their tires easily gets sucked into the intake and builds up to where I could see drops against the air filter after only 15 minutes of driving. Because I figured that I would almost always be following some vihicle somewhere when it rains, I reversed the mod.

This mod is basically a cold air ram intake in a very simple form. Why not add a bend or two and have an opening lower? Any water would stay collected in the bend and the added ram affect of the cold air would still be of benefit. Correct?

I have had zero issues with mine in HEAVY downpours. I have a home made screen setup that is finer than the one shown and an Airaid intake any accumulation of water would drain from the bottom of the housing.
