hey guys, dumb question probably, but why doesn't water get into the engine bay through the open hood vents?

The left side has drain channels built in to the hood liner. They can be seen when the hood is open. They channel water away from the CAI. Right side is open. There is nothing for water to hurt.

One sides not really open. Other sides small and nothing for it to really damage below it. Not a lot gets in anyway.
