Default PCM protection after installing CAI

I need some advice from everyone about how to mount adn where to locate the PCM after installing my CAI. Right now it'* sitting in the same location as stock but on an aftermarket battery tray. I'm a little afraid that with rain, snow, puddles and carwashes that it might get wet and quit on me. Has anyone but a housing for it to protect it from the elements? Found a better place to locate it? Am I worrying about nothing?

thats a pretty common question here..

I have heard from many reliable sources that the pcm is weatherproof and there is no ned for an enclosure... mine is currently exposed however, i plan on rinsing the salt off mine every now and then in the winter time just to be safe

Hey guys,

i've been running my pcm open like that for probably the last two months and it hasn't harmed mine. And I have also heard from Rogue that it is weatherproof and it will be fine. Hope this helps.

Thanks, I feel better about things now. Still need to find a more secure way to mount it but I'm not too worried about the elements now.

We were resting wet bags of ice on Pdad'* PCM at the dragstrip over the weekend. Convenient place to set them. No worries at all.
