Thumbs up Stage 3 + aftermarket CAI

I've been contemplating on adding a CAI, possibly a V2 to my TL Type-S. I understand that the vehicle already has an intake, and I'm not after any sort of performance mods, I'm simply looking to give it a deeper nicer sound. Currently, I have the stage 3 mod and I enjoy it. However, lately I've been wanting more and was wondering if anyone has added a CAI after doing a stage 3 and what were the results.

I'm considering the AEM V2 because members have said it produces the best noise....any input would be appreciated

You've been here long enough to know that there are PLENTY of threads regarding CAI..

If you really just want it for sound, just remove the resonator and call it a day..

I'll be interested to hear your results. I currently have the stage 3 mod. I bought an AEM V2 Cai a year ago, but I have been too lazy to get around to installing it lol

So I've been thinking more and more about adding the AEM v2 and came across a thread that mentioned how the position of the intake (near driver side fog light) makes it susceptible to getting water in/on it.
This is a pretty big concern for me as I see rain for the better part of the spring/winter months.

any thoughts on this guys?

Ingesting water via the intake is the absolute fastest way I know to destroy an engine. I've torn down a few engines which have suffered hydrolock and have to tell you, the connecting rods look like they were designed by Picasso.

looks like I can scratch the v2 off the list then. Thanks man!
I guess a shortram intake would work, but ill revisit this idea at a later time now.
