Water in exhaust hose

So I finally have my rebuilt transmission back and plan to do the install this weekend. I recall when I pulled the exhaust line (4inch corrugated)off to access the transmission, that it had some water in it (maybe half gallon)

Am I correct in assuming that is provide back pressure and I need to put about the same amount of water back in it when I reattach the hose?

Re: Water in exhaust hose

marine engines use a wet exhaust. there is water in it. you donot need to add water--id you are most fortunate and have no issues with your system, it will actually relieve itself of water.
