Oh. Didnt know. I thought I saw that detail in someone's post, but I wasn't sure which bonnet it was about. That's fabulous.
So if there's rain, any chance of water getting inside the engine bay?

The bonnet comes with 'rain guards' which can be affixed when it rains. If you don't use the guards, rain can get into the engine bay and make it a bit dirty. TBH, the guards arent the best design (a bit shallow) and I can imagine heavy rain still managing to get in.

Would there be any risk of damage from water getting inside if you had a CAI? I heard that it can possibly suck up water and end up inside the engine? :unsure:

I honestly can't see that happening. I have a CAI and feel confident that won't ever be a problem.

Hey bravo, that day when you said you felt the heat coming out the vents did you have the rain guards in or out?

Even in very heavy rain? I can not imagine it being food for water to end up inside the engine. :crazy:

Perhaps that person was unlucky.

I see a lot of guys always worrying about water in the engine. Yes if you go through 2 feet of standing water you may be looking for trouble.

Here is some thought for you. If you driving on a rainy day, because of the humidity in the air your engine can actually consume up to 250ml of water a minute at 8000rpm.

Thank you CivicRSA. :Thumbup:
Now that's some good perspective. I was also worrying because my cai is almost as low as the coolant fan and don't want to risk hydrolock, although I do have my splashguard on.

Fitted my bonnet.
the finish is awesome. going to be wrapping it in clear vinyl soon. want to protect it from the inevitable stone chips.
it did require some adjusting and fiddling. but sits ok now. just want to transfer the rubber liner. :cool:

I had them out. Having them fitted will block the air flow completely.

The main thing to worry about would be driving through a standing puddle of water. If it's deep enough it WILL cause a problem.
That's a no brainer.
A little water spray on the filter should not be a problem at all.


Wiki defines Hydrolock as... "an abnormal condition of any device which is designed to compress a gas by mechanically restraining it; most commonly the reciprocating internal combustion engine, the case this article refers to unless otherwise noted. Hydrolock occurs when a volume of liquid greater than the volume of the cylinder at its minimum (end of the piston's stroke) enters the cylinder. Since most common liquids are incompressible the piston cannot complete its travel; either the engine must stop rotating or a mechanical failure must occur." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrolock)

So to sum up, "DONT DRIVE THROUGH DEEP PUDDLES OF WATER" and you should be just fine. ;)

Alright, good to know. Guess the guy who had his engine hydrolocked was unlucky and the others over cautious?
