A friend of mine did this but as I stated the cai or cold air intake had to be completely submerged for this to happen. It is very rare.ombastic said:i've never heard of people hydrolocking their cars because they have cold air intakes? has anyone ever had this happen to them?
If it would be unavoidable yes that would probably be the best bet.pints99 said:If you're on the highway or something, and there's no way to get out of the way of the huge puddle, then I would suggest putting the clutch in and shutting the car off. Flat out, may not be the best for the car, but the suction from the engine will be cut off and no hydrolock. IF you live in missouri or some big flood area go with a v2, but other than the that it's not a big issue and the CAI gains are irresistable
