Airfilter prone to water damage
Hi All, I`ve had a few instances where , in wet weather, I`ve unavoidably had to drive into a large puddle......nothing that would normally bother me.........but with the 156 the airfilter is very low down at the front l/h side. I end up getting an engine management light ( Clears after a while, presumably when the filter dries out ) and the filter when inspected has obvious water damage.....wet and warped. I`m afraid some day soon I`m going to suck water into the engine and wreck it. I`ve searched the forum re air intakes....nobody mentions this problem but some recommend converting to the GT type for performance reasons. Does it move the filter up away from the danger area ? ...........Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance.........Dannyboy
