Just a query really... On mine it sits right over the wheel and where the water would spray... will the airfilter suck up the water and wreck my engine?

If not i'll take it for a spin

Fro & Gregg were driving without arch liners for ages, and had a foam cone filter, sometimes a carbon BCM iirc.

Now Gregg in the process of replacing bits, because he was getting water in the oil/oil in the water

...and there's a reason not to do it

If cars were ok without them, why are they fitted???
