I purchased a 2013 3.6 OB last month, and I'm absolutely in love with it. I was a big honda fan before, now I've completely made the switch and I couldn't be happer.
I live in SE Virginia, and flash floods and puddles are a huge issue. It was the deciding factor in going from a sedan to a SUV type vehicle.
Last week a torrential downpour came through and I was stranded at the gym. I had to drive through over a foot of water, it was probably even more than that. This happens often around here.
So, I have two areas I'd like more information in.
First, how deep of water can I safely push my OB through? It is completely stock, no modifications as of yet.
Second, what recommended modifications can I make to increase the water height I can tackle? I read a thread about adding a breather to a the rear diff, but nothing in the thread was specific. I've also heard about adding a CAI to the engine, but that it can also introduce other water problems. Perhaps a lift kit to get a few more inches of ground clearance would help?
I know very little about cars and modifying them, but I have an interest in upgrading my OB to be awesome.
