Cold air intake leaking just got done driving stepped out and heard a gushing

from under the car, opened the hood and water was coming out of air intake I
don't know really anything about cold air intakes I just got the car and the
owner took really good care of her, installed custom exhaust and air intake i
would really love some help

You either overheated shot coolant out of the overflow hose/tank, or burst a hose nearby and the coolant sprayed and filled the air intake box. There is no coolant parts in the cold air intake. Check all the hoses in the area, including the clamps.
