    On a stock car, none.

    If you plan on using a Cobb AP base maps in the future, AEM or Cobb.

    If you plan on using a shop for tuning, contact them and ask what they like.

    Do yourself a favor and get an AccessPort (tune) first. After that, mod away and adjust your tune accordingly. I am using (and would recommend) this setup for stage 1+

    I went with the AEM CAI intake and have the AP. I have the Stage 1 93 AEM LWG map loaded. Gains looked impressive. Had 2 very nice storms here, and have had no issues with the CAI. And you get to here all the wooshes it makes.

    Just curious (not hijacking) - why LWG?

    Initial boost seemed high. Playing it safe. I may change back as weather warms up.

    I went pretty much the same route but added a Cobb DP with the AP stage 2 AEM map.

    As far as fear of hydrolock goes you probably shouldn't ever drive through water deep enough that reaches halfway up your bumper regardless of what intake you have. Like others have stated go with an AP stage 1 AEM. Cobb thought enough of the AEM intake to make a map for it, which says alot I think.
