Cowl Air intake

Considering doing this, what is everyone's view on this? Like the snorkel aspect and hey if i can get a 1 or 2 hp increase why not lol. In all seriousness do you feel this is a good route to go for cleaner and colder air, and also keep it water free on crossings? I really like the mustang write-up that was done.

I put mine through the cowl using a ford windstar filter housing, ford also uses the same housing on some explorers I believe. Anyway, I'm happy with it, don't know that I gained even 1 horsepower though. Raises intake up a few inches. My reason was to open up the passenger side fenderwell to allow me to mount a OBA compressor someday. Plan on adding a cowl scoop facing the windshield someday, for more protection from water. Have had a couple of crossings send a wave of water up over the hood, think the rear facing cowl scoop will help keep that out of cowl area some.

Does anyone know if there are any sensors to worry about in the newer models?
