Any ideas on how to prevent water from going into the carb or causing damage within the engine bay? I am installing a hood scoop which Ford designed to be non-functional; but I want to make it functional (only because I like when things look great and also have a functional purpose). The scoop comes from a '69 '70 Mustang. You can see a picture of the scoop if you go to Ranchero Pics then RANCHERO PICS ONLY, look at "As is '66" Ranchero; he has the same hood scoop on his '66. To maximize fresh air to the carb, I plan to use an air cleaner that has an element as a lid. If I simply cut a hole in my hood, when I drive in the rain, I'll be drawing in a certain amount of moisture. I'm wondering how a functional Mustang Shaker Hood catches, controls, channels and drains the water away. I'm sure Ford designers and engineers figured this out; otherwise, Ford would have instructed Mustang Shaker Hood owners to not drive their cars in the rain. I'm also wondering how water is channeled and drained on Formula One race cars' air intake ducts. Unlike NASCAR, F1 cars are raced in the rain all the time. Who has some ideas on how to have the scoop draw in air AND control and drain rain water?
