Why are CAIs so pricey?

Other than pure greed and newness (unless I am missing something!) why are the CAI's for the new mustangs so gdang expensive? It would be relatively easy to fashion a sealed off area where the stock filter is and use a cone. I did one on a RX7 using rigid insulation. Duplicate the stock hose routing with silicone or smooth rubber.

What am I missing?

Tnx Fred

Also the new kits have to have a precision made MAF housing. Tolerances add to the overall cost.

Prices will go down.. it maybe 2 or 3 more years. I still remember in the early 90's when a lot of Fox Body Fuel Injection parts were expensive. Now there are so many intakes and fuel ijectors out there.... but I would guess a big factor is the MAF housing.
