Question Volant CAI scoops and water?

I thinking about getting the volant CAI with a ram air scoop for behind the fog light. Has anybody experienced problems with puddles or rain getting water in your system?

i think you should be ok unless you go tromping off into a lake or a deep mud hole rain water shouldn't be an issue.

Can't speak for the RAM scoop, but the Volant scoop I had on my old Silvy blasted my filter with rain, sand, crud,,,, whatever was bumper height as I was flying down the highway,,,

After a trip in heavy rain, the filter would wash out 'white' where it was facing the scoop inlet...

After the scoop 'sandblasted' my filter and left it full of tiny holes, the scoop was promptly removed.

I believe Volant (now) recommends that you use a pre-filter if you plan on using a scoop.
