Free Flow Plumbing
Is there any reason why I can't make a straight shot from the waterbox to the free flow pipe? The oem hose goes up in front of the IC and then back down to the resonator. I want to get rid of all that extra hose and clean up the engine compartment. I saw that the R&D free flow kit basically does this.
My concern is water ingestion with the engine off. Opinions?

you can do it. I made a stainless pipe to do that a couple of years ago and have had no problems. I did it that way so I could do an intercooler and keep the stock resonator, it was making me deaf with a resonated powerpipe which uses the stock outlet.

I think it's like that to discourage water from backflowing into the engine during tump-overs and such.
