If you're worried about ingesting water then the stock intake opening at the bottom of the bumper is much more of a risk than RPI scoops would be. Your car would need to be in water to the top of the engine bay for the scoops to ingest.
Thanks for the detailed answer, that explains it better to me and makes me feel more relaxed about the scoops. I'll follow your instructions and will take a look at the car tomorrow at work.
