Now is it possible to take out the intake and cut the tube to make it shorter or should i just get a short ram intake. Any suggestions or the cheapest way to do it?
Stock intake runs down there too. It's just covered.
Only way you can suck up water is high RPMs, like 5-6k maybe.
Otherwise, the filter is just going to get a little wet, and you can remedy that by a hydro shield.
No short rams are available for the LSJ, and you definitely don't want to cut the tube.. Leave it.
Cheapest way is to get that hydro shield on the filter.
