Well I was going through a street ive never been down before went over this hill and what time my eyes a a huge puddle. I couldnt back up cause i had cars flying behind me. I have a Short Ram intake. The actual computer infront of the battery has water in it. Im gonna get a hair dryer and get all that decent. All the plugs going to the computer was soaked. The intake however was still dry. Inside the throttle body dry. I threw the car immediatly in nuetral as i went through it so I wasnt soaking in air. The car is making a weird like Wrx sound like its missing. I blew on the connectors and sockets but there is still a bit on bottom of the plastic. I know it has something to do with the computer because my damn wiper blades dont stop I had to pull the fuse. Im gonna drain the oil even though there isnt a milky residue and the filter and pull the spark plugs and crack it to be on the safe side. I drove the car home for a good 20 miles. The car still hits lift perfectly. But does had a bit of hesitation Im thinking maf . I also felt inside the intake tube no water. So this is a puzzle to me . Ive already put a motor in this thing before for sucking up water and it doesnt seem like that. Before I started the car up I let it sit for 10 mins and it cranked with no problem. Input please guys. :crazy2:

Yea im gonna wait till tomorrow and see how everything works out when I start it up for work. Time will tell I dont think anything is wrong with the motor istelf just a wet electrical system. Cause I can actually see water at the bottom of the computer. I went over the Walt Witman bridge like that and that thing is steep haha. But if there was water in the motor I would have sent a connecting rod right through the block.
