IPF supercharged owners question

when driving in heavy rain does anyone else have problems with the air filter. Since I live in Florida where it always rains, when it does my engine will start bogging and will not let accelerate and when I come to a stop the engine will die and have trouble starting back up the day after I will empty the catch can where it will be full of water. anyone else experience this or have a solution, I was thinking about shorting or possible relocation the intake, because im sure its not good for the engine.

Get a rain sock for the air filter and don't enter boost in rain.

Water in the catch can is condensation, hot gas from the crankcase entering a can that is being cooled by outside air.

I actually already have a sock for it, when I drive in the rain I never go above 1800 rpms because I thought that was the reason for it bogging regardless if it rains heavy the car boggs

It is a German MAF so it doesn't like water, only beer. If water hits the MAF it screws up the readings. If it was a blow-thru setup it wouldn't be bad but that is bigger problems.

It's a water keeper outer.

Jk just go to the parts department of your local chevy dealer. They should be able to pull up some parts diagrams and get you what you need.

I hope that's not the "water-keeper outer" with about 15 body panel retainers to keep it in place.

It cost me over $100 to replace'em after my car came back with most of those (13) missing!
