Both are good.
Both will yield a lil more hp, def. will make your overall driving experience more fun.

Short ram intake:
LOUD
Good high end power(if you can feel it)
Prone to sucking in hot engine air for combustion

Cold air intake:
Nice overall power within all power range, more low end(if you can feel it)
Less loud
Prone to water ingestion if filter is located in fenderwell without a bypass valve.

As for which is better?
that's really YOUR preference.
I would say, get a cold air intake.

My preference is the AEM V2, which is a SRI, but I'm told the Iceman SRI is the next best thing, a mate has one and a header and made 115kW at the front wheels with his 4g H22A

I will probably get what I believe is a SRI. It is a power chamber 1000 from japan(has carbon fiber chamber). Also, anyone know where to find a solid carbon fiber intake? Have seen them, but cannot find one for sale.

I think it's a resonable price considering what intakes cost. Type S is $159 I believe.

I've heard good things about the Type S intake. I'm half thinking about one myself. It gives in increase in mid range torque, as well as all the other advantages of an OEM part. (But if I don't go Type S it will be V2)

well, the cold air intake gives more power overall cause of the colder air that gets it lets in and the longer piping creates more velocity. the short ram may give a little more throttle response but over all the cai is better

thanks!

I would of go with a SRI for daily use and then the CAI for when I have to go race. So I would of recommend a 2 piece CAI so you can make it SRI type if you don't need CAI.

By the way I made my own SRI and CAI with the use of PVC piping.
And it actually works better in some cases against the aluminium pipings.
For example:
the PVC piping turnes hot slower then the aluminium.
but the bad point is. That when it is hot it takes more time to cool down then the aluminium piping. So think about it
You can make your own CAI or SRI for about $15
You just need to go to your local hardware store

Re: cold air or short ram?

I have a V2 and i was told that I can simply make it a CAI by buying a "slinky" type extending tubing that will connect from the V2 and I can put the tube through that OVAL shaped hole where the stock intake would be and reconnect the filter part to the other end.

It would be the same as any other CAI but it would save the time and work of cutting out a bigger hole to fit the pipe and filter through to the bottom front end!!!

i'm going to try that once it get's warmer and hoipefully post a DIY on it!!!

Re: cold air or short ram?

I personally had a CAI, but modified it to a short ram. We have alot of flash flooding in the area so its better not to have the filter hanging down that low to suck up all that water.
