well the question is; is it a problem to have water go onto a hot engine or something? because my reverse scoops on my car are open and water rolls right into them when washing, but usually if it rains water flows the opposite way so it don't get into my scoop

not a good idea like others are saying, your going to get water in there and it will create more drag for a better chance for the scoop to fly off and what if it doesn't look good after you do it JMO Dan-
