I am not familiar with the spyder version CAI but...
Does your car not have a splash shield at the bottom of the bumper or the shield on the front drivers side wheel well? Between those two guards, your CAI should not be in direct contact with water. Most CAI i have seen position the filter element inside the front bumper. It may get the occasional misting but other than that, it shouldnt be getting wet unless you are driving through large puddles/standing water.

This is the shield on the bottom of the bumper:

Or try modifying your CAI so it is shorter and sits higher in the engine bay.
