Black Friday DIY Intake

I amtrying to snag up some online deals so I can order the parts to make an intake for my 06 s-type, but I need to know what to get. My budget is mid-range around 60-100$. Any good suggestions for both ends of the spectrum?

Are there any major cons to creating a custom intake, other than a lower horsepower output?

No not really... They all do the same thing. Location of the filter is what's important, and with an SRI or a custom one, it's too close to the header which increases heat soak which eats up your horsepower making it almost worse than stock. The CAI relocates the filter to down in the wheel well, by the windshield washer fluid bottle which helps the motor breathe much better.

Would I need a splash guard for a cold air intake? And I also live in Maryland, would any tempurates during summer seasons cause problems in a cai?

Summer temps dont cause problems with a CAI, standing water does.

Just don't floor your car through a puddle and you're good. It doesn't rain too much here so you don't have to worry about hydro locking

or just mod the stock airbox.... take out the resonator only, get a K & N filter... and create a CAI style pipe with a velocity stack for better air inhaling

Im living in semi-low lying areas where puddles are frequent. How fast would I not want to hit a puddle? I see you have a short ram on yours, do you think thatd be more worth the money?

I live in an area where low-lying areas are decently common in Rockville. Should I do what you did and go with a short ram, or would a cold air be more worth the money? And if I were to hit a puddle, what would be a safe speed to hit it at because i'm not trying to hydrolock myself. Thanks.
