I just finished breaking in my new os vspec. Well i was running it yesterday and it had rained and quit. I was tunning it down and it rained earlier. well i hit a big puddle of water (like a dumbass) and imediatley the engine cut out and went cold. I then took the air filter off and flushed the engine with fuel and restarted it ( started right up) got it back up to temp and shut it down to cool properly. Later i disassembled the engine, cleaned and flushed every piece of with wd40, cleaned all the deposits out. reassembled flushed with nitro and coated it real well with after run oil. My engine still has tons of compression, no parts look stressed (from cooling off to quickly) and actually is a tighter then before i cleaned it.

Is there anything i did wrong in this scenario??? I think in retrospect starting the engine back up was probably not the best idea, but it wasnt' that hot to begin with (200) And i was freaking out because it was alot of water.
