almost hydrolocked my car today

i have an AEM CAI, and it started pouring on the way to the gym today and i ended up plowing through some huge puddles of still water on the road, from where it had accumulated. I thought i would definetly lose it today on the road, i couldn't get off the road because of traffic and the curb along side of the road, so i was pretty much stuck with going through it all. Ended up being ok and no damage. At least it drives normal right now, but when i hit these standing puddles of water the water was so high it really slowed down my car when i hit them, id say they were at least 8in - 12inch deep. Makes me think twice about my CAI, but i really love the performance from it. What do you Suggest? Short rams making the same gains? And do they still have that hissing sound when acclerating like the AEM CAI, because i like that sound.
