    Is it a concern if you have heavy rain coming in through the supercharger?

    Supercharger is sealed so no water will be getting in the supercharger. As for the hood vents water is not an issue otherwise the vents wouldn't have been made

    After 2200 miles, in rain, snow, and a car wash, there have been no problems. Water would have to get past the air filter before it got into the engine. The air box where the filter is located has a small water drain hole in the bottom. Not to worry.

    Thanks. I hadn't looked too closely but I knew there was some type of opening. I learned something new today.
