Exclamation Cold Air Intake in a 98 GLT?

hi, i have 1998 S70 GLT with about 150,xxx miles and after hearing how good a my friend's 2001 Jetta VR6 sounds with an intake, i want to put one on my vehicle. so before i make any choices i decided to hear from you guys on your opinion. im looking for something around $60 range. so if anybody has any ideas on the brand, or even a link to the sale, than that would be great!

I hate to burst the bubble but...

1. No one really makes a Cold Air Intake for our Volvo's.

2. IPD USA and EuroSportTuning (EST) both sell what is called a Short Ram Intake (SRI). The cone filter is attached to your MAF and a heatshield is placed around it. It can be covered on three sides or completely enclosed on all sides. With the three sided version HOT air can still be sucked in. Even with the fully enclosed version HOT air is still prevelent problem because the filter is still closer to the engine. HOT air in the intake isn't a good thing.

3. A Cold Air Intake (CAI) will have to be custom made if you want it to be a true CAI. Not hard to do, just will take some planning and the proper parts. Mandrel bent piping and a cone filter with T-Bolt clamp or Hose clamp. Shouldn't cost you much to do it either.

4. K&N they may have one for the newer s40/c30 models, but this will not fit on your vehicle. So don't even try it. BMC CDA had something, but they were around $300 and always out of stock.

FYI the best setup is the stock airbox with a performance filter inside of it.

Yes I have the EST SRI and while it looks cool under the hood and it makes a great deep throaty sound it still gets major heatsoak in the Summer time.

That is what the BMC CDA looks like for a lot less. FYI it is just like a stock airbox.
