Hello, first post here, playing with the intake system (I'm a certified A&P mechanic, so I'm not a car expert by any means but I know my way around motors and most vehicles enough to get around.) and I came across a small (2x4") carbon looking filter, resonator, or air deflector of some sort. Does anyone have any clue what this is?

Moisture isnt a problem for an engine.
Tell that to the bent rod in engine of the cruiser I drove into a flooded section of road...

Well Ford seems to disagree. There was a video post on here recently where (if I'm not mistaken) a Ford exec. was explaining why they purposely decreased the air intake in a Ford RS. He essentially mentioned too much humid air as being a factor.

It's for emissions. The Subaru's started using them a while back as well. I remember seeing the differences between the PZEV vehicle and the non-PZEV, and one of them was the carbon filter in the housing.
