I really doubt you'd be able to make it across since water will pretty much stop you in a second... I rather be safe than sorry.FuLIsh said:still debating whether or not to buy the stupid bypass. i read on aem's website that they dont recommend the bypass valve because it changes the airflow inside the intake or something like that and have heard from members on the board that it can reduce the gains from the CAI. im lowered on progress springs, which isnt that low but then again new york does have its rain storms from time to time and i get scared drivin in them cuz i can barely see the road infront of me to dodge puddles. from what ive heard there has to be atleast a foot of water to submerge the filter. lets say roll into the "river" but dont accelerate until you clear it, will that help prevent hydrolock?
