let me just start off by saying GREAT STUFF MAN!!!

but as a newbie (who has learned a lot from the great foci gurus here hehe) if using an Iceman type system, why is there not a fear of water getting into the engine, and where else could , if by chance you were installing a more "homemade" cool air, you place an air intake to get your cold air from? Would running it down to the underside, like a true CAI, run risks of sucking up water..... And doens't the stock air intake still get water into it? Is it accually avoidable? Does the filter box keep the aqua out? I'm still a bit lost on the whole water sucking up issue.

Please help me great gurus

Remove the underhood padding, I took mine out a long time ago.

on mcnewsautomotives the intakes they have there are the cold air for the zetec and one for the svt.. i would be better off with the zetec since i have a zetec engine right or are the engines similar and i would be better buying the svt.

since no one answered for a month i guess i will :P the ice man filter isnt succeptable to water (sp?) because of the filter placement. no large enough amount of water will ever reach it unless there is a flood! the aem and long tube ones can suck water just by runnin thru a puddle

the only way you warrenty can be voided is if the adftermarket part caused the problem so if you have a problem and you take it to the dealer be carefull on what thay say and if you have to pay for a second opinion do it. the dealer might mess with you and say it helped caused the problem even if it dident just so you pay to fix it. i know from experience it saved me not all dealers are like that but some are .

So when you say that the FC ram-air hood fits perfectly with the Volant CAI, does that mean you just install each part and they line up, or that you have to do slight modifications to one/both of the part(s) for them to line up?
