What a Crappy day hydrolocked the beater

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
On the way to work today its was down pouring here in the hampton roads area really bad. well I get all the way on base and the road right inside the gate is flooded. Against my better judgment I proceed to drive through it thought it was only 6 inches deep....it was more like 18 almost made it through but a guy going the other way in a big van thought it would be cool to cause a 2 foot wake to go over my car. It locked right up there in almost two feet of water. Two guys were nice enough to push me to dry ground. I checked the oil....there is water in it. I then pushed it 4 blocks to a parking spot. Going to get a ride to my house so I can get tools. Plan is to pull the plugs crank it over get the water out. Put new plugs/oil and oil filter in it, cross my fingers and turn it over.

It fired up and it runs just now has a check engine light it idles at 3000rpms. It started pouring rain again so I called it quits. First guess is vacuum leak. Second is MAP sensor.
