Exhaust mods will be more rewarding.

Depends on what but back in 2003 I had to cut in the inner well for my rsx-s and also change the windshield washer bottle to a smaller one........The Vtec sounded sweet but being honest I gained what probably 2-3hp ........car nowadays have efficient stock airbox. You might actually lose some hp. Also when you're doing the maintenance it's easier to change the filter from the top then to play at the bottom removing inner fenders and what not. Back to your question if you already have it youll be fine...Ive never seen a car hydrolock it was our fear back in the days but it was a myth or some marketing by AEM to sell bypass valves

Newer direct injection, force inducted vehicles uses a MAP sensor, which will eliminate excess fuel.
With that being said, an intake will be of no value either; without a tune.
