Thought I killed my car

Well, I just got done washing my car at one of those coin car wash places. I didn't spray down the engine or anything but I'm pretty sure I got water in the air intake through the wheel well. Of course the car wouldn't start, I let it sit for awhile and ran home, literally, to grab some tools. I came back popped open the air filter and dried the box out, the engine started, coughed and blew all the water vapor out of the exhaust. The car hesitated for a little bit but after about :30 min. of driving it seemed fine. When I wake up in the morning are the rings going to be rusted into place? Is there anything more I can do?

Any moisture ingested that does not hydro-lock the engine will get evaporated in 30 minutes of driving. No worries. At worst you have a little water contamination in your oil from blow-by.

not sure with cars, but with jet skis you have 30 min-1 hour to get it back on the lake for 2-3 hours after you sink it or you'll be replacing the engine (trust me, there's a reason mine has a bullet proof engine )

I've always just sponged out around the engine, let it dry, then run it like hell. I have a kawasaki 900stx, how about you gearhead?

Honda's new ones have...... TURBOS, but my 900 is n/a, can I turbocharge it? Best tip is to maintain it and keep the engine dry. If not cared for the engines have a relatively small TBO. Enjoy.

95 Sea Doo XP with a bored out 720. Tony ducus racing crank and rods, Wiseco pistons, Vertex flame arrests (there's NO air filter), UMI racing water intake, and a Rossier Rotary valve. Hopefully it will soon have a Factory Racing (aftermarket company) pipe and a Rossier intake manifold (gonna have to run a premix on the fuel and oil). And hopefully we'll get a new ECU (up the rev limiter) and an impeller (AKA prop) pitched more for top end. NO idea how much power she's making, but she's supposed to have ~85 stock and I know that it's a lot higher than that. The only thing that beats me down low is the damn Yami GP1200R (155 hp)

My advice is avoid that ultra 150 fast924s. I'm not much of a fan of the kaw, more of a Sea Doo and Yami guy. I personally suggest a 95 Sea Doo XP limited or a 96 Sea Doo XP. They're both an H-hull (really light) and make ~110 hp stock. Yeah, Honda's new one is turbo, but I would be hesitant to buy it. It's Honda's first turbo engine, and it's Honda's first jetski; they're going to have A LOT of problems and improvements on them within the next few years.
