Speed Infusion....I also have a Dinan CAI. There should be a cover that protects the cone. With that said, you should have no problems washing your car, rain, or snow. Just try to stay away from big puddles. Ones big enough for water to get into your driver's side brake duct. That would be pretty frickin' deep too!
