Ok it is more then likely not "hydrolock". Hydrolock is when the water gets in the engine and wont compress like air and it bends a rod. The only way to do that is to have the engine at 6000rpms and drive in a lake. What you did was get the maf wet. When the maf gets wet it dumps fuel and the engine dies and wont start. You maf have gotten some water in the engine but i doubt it. Pull the plugs overnight and take off the maf and clean and dry it.

3/4 in spark plug socket, couple of extentions (wobble extenstions are best) and a socket wrench. Your brother-in-law sounds like a dick. If my brother-in-law charged me for a tow I would kick his ***.

Just got back from the shop.He had it in the garage with a battery charger on it.We pulled the plugs and 4 of the eight plugs had ice in the gap.I tried to turn it and it did'nt budge.I was thinking doin it by hand might be better.Anyways,he said to let it thaw out a bit in the shop and we'll try it again later.Wish me luck!

This happened to a friend on mine's son's 98 Cobra. The engine was blown and the insurance company gave him $9k for the car. He bought it back for $300 and rebuilt the engine and had a profit. That is the way i would go, I wouldn't worry about the old engine. You could afford a Termi engine for that....

if its gone take it to a engine shop and have them machine the block if its not cracked, and polish and port the heads. then all forged internals and some cams since its all apart. sounds like alot but now would be the time to do the work while its apart.
