My advice...become an advanced mechanic before you go through water that high. You will be submerging your entire drivetrain, steering, and interior and all these will need to be rebuilt often. Sucking water into the engine may be the smallest concern.

You run it into the cowl righ under the intake in the cowl. Spectre has a intake kit or you can make one yourself. People have used a variety of filter boxes from other vehicles such as Ford Windstar, Buick and others. I don't remember if there are threads here but has a lot of build it yourself threads.
