teryx water terror

i have a 2011 sport with muzzys and msd box and snorkels decided to dip in some water to test the snorkels out. I'm guessing the water stop the fan which blew the fuse kept riding not knowing the fan wasnt working well eventually the temp light started flashing so i cut it off and let it cool down. Then started driving it again temp light came back on the fi then another light started flashing and the whole machine shut off.
Towed it back to camp all the water was gone out the radiator and it wouldnt do anything replaced main fuse and all lights and stuff came back on. Put water in the radiator and crank it ran fine idleing so i dont think cracked head or head gasket started driving it wouldnt go over 15mph and was shooting fuel out of exhaust and smoke like burnt fuel killed it and tried cranking the next day woundnt crank and computer was hot what is going on

I don't mean to be rude or anything but formatting your post with paragraphs and sentences usually helps get responses. That was actually hard to read....

The one I can answer is if raw fuel is coming out then one of two things is happening. That cylinder is not firing so the fuel is going thru or you might have a injector issue hence the FI light.

Download you service manual from tradebit.com for a 09 forward Teryx and go thru the diagnostic function to see what code is set hence the FI light.

I unplugged the msd box and it smelled burnt so I touch the factory computer so I'm thinking the computer shorted out and burned up

Did your connections all have dielectric grease in them?

I like a man that lets it all hang out, keep the pedal to the medal.

overheated

Can't speak for the fuel and aftermath problems.I can speak for checking your ventline coming off your fan. If you get water in your line (I have) your fan will not run and you'll boil over. If you pull off ventline and just blow water out that should remedy the problem. All the secondary problems you had I can't speak for. I have overheated mine and had issues with the fan but never with all the symptoms you speak of.
