If you got water in the ignition, 12 hours with the hood up may not be enough to dry it out. Try taking the coil wires off and if you see water in the plug wells or coils then dry it up by hand.

I just pulled the ignition wires, coilpacks, and spark plugs. I sprayed them with wd40 and dried them with my air compressor. Still no go. It's not fuel because nothing there just broke overnight. I wondered if maybe water got in some other connector, like the MAF or CAS. I unplugged a lot of the wiring harness and closed the hood to see if anything else got wet. When the key is in the ignition part there is the CEL, parking brake light, and the battery light (This is pretty odd. It's plugged into a battery charger, so maybe that's why it is showing that).

Didn't do an oil relocation did you?

Ouch, I'm so sorry to hear that happened to your car. No relocation kits here. I think it was just because the engine hadn't ran in 1.5 months when I took the pictures.

I actually got the car running again. What I did this time was unplug most of the wiring harness (stuff like the CAS, crank sensor, etc) and let it dry. After about a day and a half it finally started after a couple cranks while pumping the gas. It ran pretty bad for a while before it warmed up. But now it's running great. Pretty weird, I sincerely hope rain doesn't affect it like that in the future.

Remove all connectors again, put a dab of vaselin in each one before reassembly.
If it works well offshore it should work well for your wet

They make stuff better than Vaseline for that. I'll have to talk to owner of our Chump Car about what we use.
