Civic d series turbo engine misfire

Question

Today my d series turbo d15z has stating misfiring at low rpm my water expansion bottle has overflowed and slightly leaked on to my air filter and it’s damp, would this be enough to go through my intercooler piping and intercooler and into the engine? To cause a misfire as it’s a long way for water to travel. Help is appreciated thanks

it would have needed a fair amount of water to pass through. remove the filter clean and dry it then I'd be removing the spark plugs and checking the leads.. then go from there

Thanks for the reply today on closer inspection the car is not misfiring it’s leaking exhaust gases around the manifold area, could possibly be a blown manifold gasket, a blown t3/t4 turbo flange gasket, or a crack in the manifold I can not see it being anything else it has to be one of these that’s the culprit I’ll have to pull it apart and see what’s happened as I pushed the car to 150+ mph when this happened (private road)
