AEM V2. CAI or Short ram? huh??

I'm currently running an eBay CAI in my Lude, I want to get a short ram because I live in Utah and I don't want any hydro lock. So, after doing research I'm wanting an AEM V2 but.... The only one I can find says it's a Cold Air Intake, not a Short Ram... Is it actually just a short ram or is it a CAI?? I found this intake at autoanything btw.

Wouldn't it just be easier to cut you intake and make it a short ram air?

^^ this.


I would just cut the intake vs spending the money on a V2. But your car, your money - so your call :)

I have the v2, it says its apparently the best of both, but it doesnt stick down as far as a CAI so no hydro lock if that helps. I like it alot, sounds good.

Will I have to stick it inside the hole that was already cut out for my current cai?

No you won't have to stick it in the hole. Plus a v2 is like 4 inches around at the filter end it wouldn't fit hah.

Sticking it in the hole has my vote.

Cut it so it sits where the original air cleaner was. cut it long and keep trimming it. make sure you get the fillings out of the tube tho.
