It would have been people run it while its raining and havent had problems. But with that chunk missing behind the filter it wont be. Your tire well be throwing water at it. I'd do something about that.

for your car to suck up any water, the filter would have to be roughly 3/4 submerged. think about it for a second, the tb on your car is about 2-3 feet ABOVE the filer, and there is about 4 ft of 2.5" or 3" pipe between your filter and the tb. it would take a hellova lot more suction than your motor can produce to get enough water through the restriction of the of the filter and all the way up to the engine to mess things up.
