Congrats. Noone seems to support you 2004+ 4 cyl guys. Give it a month and see if a certain company doesn't have something for you.

Great idea! Others have resorted to the "flower pot mod" and the "bucket mod" to create splash shields like yours!

i left the part of my intake that the filter sits in when i made mine, it still sucked up water.

a motor later, it will never happen again.
