I have a SAP, not sure if it is different under from a non-SAP, BUT I have a splash guard under and the inner tire fender-well will block out pretty much ANY water you can throw at it. It doesn't rain often here in AZ, but when it does it POURS and I've NEVER had a problem with my intake being that low, and I have the FRPP suspension kit.I also use to live in Utah and the snow was never an issue either. IT was made pretty well. I can get under pics if needed.

The intake and catback exhaust where my first mods, same day actually, and they where GREAT. The header was also a good upgrade, and the tune sure did help in many ways as well.

In this downpour we have had the last two days (over 5 inches since friday night)I have drove mine from Tyler to Terrell twice and around both towns and I don't even have the hydro shield on my filter right now. You have nothing to fear. Our gen has a splash guard under the engine connected to the front bumper and the air filter resides against the inside of the bumper. you will notice all of those people who fear or have experienced hydrolock either 1 have an older gen without the splash guard or 2 were in water so deep that the filter completely submerged... Which if your in that situation then you have much more to worry about then hydrolock lol.
