Yeah having the filter that low (practically resting on the splash shield) might be a little troublesome especially on the metal cap and paper pleats....

Getting it up even an inch over the splash shield might make all the difference...

And in all honesty, I really have no answer to the "wetness" thing. I don't think paper, gauze, foam, anything really, was intended to run after a complete soaking. The paper would become brittle, the cotton gauze would lose its oillyness (and thus its filtering capabilities), and foam just sucks all around...

The most honest answer I could give is during winter/rainy seasons, go with either the stock setup, or a "flatter" filter in the fender well....
