My left wheel well in front of my left tire has about a 4'' hole from putting in the Injen CAI. My question is should I be worried about water or excessive dirt getting on the filter. I live in a place where it doesn't rain hardly ever but just seeing that hole there makes me nervous.

I live in a very rainy area and I have the same hole and not worried about it.

Okay well hearing someone else say its fine for some reason makes me feel more at ease. How often do you change your filter? Mine said something like 25k miles but do you check yours more often or what? Thanks

I change mine two times a year, spring time and in the fall. I found it easier to have a second filter on hand so there is no drying time and your car isnt sitting for 24 hours with no front bumper on it.

I heard that if you do get a tiny bit of water up there it will just burn off any ways. Just don't take your car through a creek or anything..
