carbs, pods and rain

I think if the air is already more moist, then it would run worse than dry
air at the same temp.  Funny things happen however if the water is
evaporating just before combustion...

My worry is that the wet filter would not flow much air.

Cool, thanks for the correction.
I wonder if condom would work too?

Moist air is actually less dense than dry air - water vapor is lighter
than air.  So when it's dry, engines run better than when it's humid.

Ok, I'm done spouting my newfound (or renewed) knowledge, back to pods
and shower caps!
