Hood question

So I just bought a seibon 1M style hood with louvers. Should I have any concern with the louvers and rain/water into intake?

There's no "1M" style hood, the 1M hood is identical to the regular 1series hood. Do you mean the M3 style? I have the one with just the OE M3 style vents and I've never had an issue. I also removed the engine cowl and installed the BMS cabin air filters for the cowl delete and I've never had an issue with those either.
