I'm just not convinced that standing water in the airbox is actually the problem.

Somewhat releated, here's the "Intake Sound System"

I somewhat understand your point, but how would you explain my F8 suddenly runs fine in the rain after installing the temporary fix I posted pic of?

In 3 major thunderstorms beginning in December of 2008 to the present, My
F8 has stalled aprox 15 times in a heavy downpour.

It did not stall during the last heavy rain about a week ago.
