Well since I already purchased this one I was kind of looking for a solution on how to possibly modify it...maybe shielding it somehow or re-routing it.

the best solution for the bomz i would suggest is cut off about 6 inches of the end of the piping to raise the filter a little, get an aem filter, plus a heat shield to guard splashing water, and a bypass valve, this solves the solution and any possibility. just my two cents

I sold my AEM cai for the same reason. Best solution would be to sell the intake and get the volant.
