      The only force in nature that can stop a 1.8T is a hurricane.

      What if the 1.8T's name is Ditka?

      Pretty obvious that 1.8T wasn't chipped. A chipped 1.8T named Ditka would rip a hole in the space-time continuum.

      That is in Moab Utah. It is a popular part of the Slickrock Trail. I have ridden mountain bikes there. The trails are insane, and the red rock surface is super grippy! It is really fun out there.

      Looks like Lion's Back Ridge to me. *shrug* Unfortunately that part of trail is now closed... from what I've heard. Haven't been out that way in ages so I can't confirm / deny first hand. But from what I understand it's off limits to 4x's.

      Most water should get pushed out or prevented from coming in by the exhaust pulses. The rest would drain out of the weep holes in your mufflers. The headers would just cool off quickly. Nothing should happen but I'm sure there is always a chance of warpage/cracking.
