notice previous posts regarding bonnet scoops,have you given any thought to a device for your exhaust pipe,like a flap arrangement ,if you stall mid stream the flap will close and no water would enter the engine,something like the inboard speed boats have,where the exhaust goes through the transom.bye barry

If you do manage to stall mid-stream & fill the car with water as opposed to just wetting the tyres, then I personally wouldn't be trying to re-start it, get it towed out let the water drain out, check every thing before trying to start it again.

Any water on the inlet side needs to be investigated thoroughly, hydraulic lock is a bad thing.

G'day barry, when I do a deep water crossing I fit a half metre of motor bike inner tube over the end of the exhaust pipe to keep the water out - works well, sounds funny, simple, efficient 'n cheap! hoo roo
