Trying to decide if I should blow 1200 bucks on an IE intake manifold and Malone tune. Opinions?

Have a bit of a dilemma and question for you guys, trying to figure something out and needed some second opinions.

Currently I am running the APR Carbonio CAI for the 2.5L which you likely know relocates the air filter down below the drivers side foglight / grille area as shown in the picture below.



I also just purchased a Golf R front bumper in which the drivers side foglight / grille area has a GINORMOUS-ASS hole in the end plate (Piece 7) behind the grille for air to flow through on the very same side. Pictured below.



My concern is that the APR Carbonio filter is now actually set in a place where it might do more bad than good since the hole in the bumper is relatively close to the filter by being now even more vulnerable to rain and water leading to a chance of hydrolocking the motor.

Do you think this is a real concern or likelihood? I keep thinking that I should remove the APR Carbonio CAI and run a smaller short ram or something like that where it stays toward the top of the bay.

Thoughts, opinions?

Does piece 7 go behind piece 8 (the driver's side grill)?

From what I heard, as long as the water level is below the filter it should be fine. Regular rain won't be enough to cause the engine to hydro lock.

I live in Southern California and it's main benefit for me is not having to worry about things like that, having a winter setup, rust, etc. There is some kind of cover you can put over the air filter that can reduce your risk of hydrolocking.

If it were an option, the bumper I would put on my car would be the one in this APR page. Sadly the Neuspeed Thunder Bunny Bumper was only for the MK5s.

A concern? Possibly.

I would just sell the carbonio, and get a p-flo or any other short ram. They are all for sound anyways.

Thats the MK5 Thunderbunny Kit really awesome and I do wish they made a kit for the MK6. The side skirts are interchangeable between the 5's and 6's.
