For low maintainance, low cost, and the peace of mind on very rainy days where deep puddles are like everywhere, get the SRI. For better performance, get the CAI. Although I heard there are bypass valves for CAI nowadays so that you dont get hydrolock... But I agree with my05civic, as well as many others, the AEM V2 kicks serious ***!

there are advantages to both a cai and sri. with sri, the throttle response is better because the air gets to the engine fast through the shorter tube but the disadvantage is that the air is warm since its closer to the engine.

with cai, you get air just a little bit cooler (the air gets warmed when it passed through the tube near the engine block) but the throttle response is not as noticeable because the air takes longer to travel up there

cai, sri, both offer basically the same performance, but the v2, supposedly a combination and not actually a sri, is the best

read this:

to be honest, cold air intakse arent that great either, by the time the air gets to the motor, it has warmed back up. That is why there hasnt been a difference (if at all) between CAI & SRI -Remmy

and V2 FTW!
