You will definitely have issues then. It will basically suck the water right ii. There is even an interview on youtube (Army work computer won’t let me imbed it) with Jim Wangers talking about the Royal Bobcat package. He explains how it works, what it was, etc…and he specifically mentions “you wouldn’t wanna drive the car in the rain” and laughs. One thing you could do, which wouldn’t be particularly stock for 65’ is to install the pull tab like a 70’ GTO had. It’s a knob under the dash that said RAM AIR. When you pulled it, it opened flaps in the scoop letting the air get “rammed in”. Or you could leave them closed if you were driving around Plant City, FL in a rainstorm. On a stock 65' with the kit you were just "ramming air" all of the time.
I have a 65’ myself (you can see it in the Garage tab under my avatar” and I am thinking of putting a Ram Air kit on mine. However, I am stationed in El Paso (Fort Bliss) and won’t be using it as my daily driver, nor driving it the 2 days a year it rains there. Others opinions may vary.
