Good advice but, I also doubt that. It would be quite hard to force water up the air vent, past the air filter and into the intake without submerging the car over the hoodline. You could stick a hose up the air passage or down the hood vent and water would not make it past the filter Into the motor. Cars are designed for eventualities such as this.
