Exclamation Air Filter design flaw!! HELP!! Gm sucks!!

Ok, so i live on an island in alaska that gets 13 FEET of rain a year and with where the air intake is located everytime i hit a puddle or there is a heavy rain my air intake sucks in water, car dies, throws a code blah blah blah... well i consulted with GM about the problem and they are trying to find a way to fix it but they told me that nobody else has ever had this problem.. have any of you guys heard anything about re routing the air intake or anything like that.. I havent been able to drive my car in over a month and the dealership stuck im in a piece of crap subaru outback station wagon until mine gets fixed...

short ram intake that stays in the engine bay may help, anything to get your intake up off the ground and away from all that water, hot air from the enigne bay may hurt performance some though

^^^ Agreed. Just buy the GM short Ram. It may cost u a little bit, but you won't suck up any water and you will keep your warranty(assuming you still have it). I don't believe these cars were made to be driving in Alaska though, lol

thats the only one i could find that looks like it keeps in in the engine bay, kinda expensive though, but if it keeps it in the bay and up off the ground you should be good to go

there is another one on ebay a little cheaper and free shipping

sorry man but thats all i could find, i didnt find anything about a gm cobalt ss intake
