I would get cold air because its cold air. The difference between them is short ram gets air from the engine bay and cold air gets the air from under the fender. My opinion is if your gonna get short ram you might as well the the stock air box. Oh yeah and just incase you ask bypass valve are overrated.

short ram with cold air box if u want the tiny extra hp and it rains/floods a lot in ur area. cai if it dosnt flood much. sri if u dont care for that extra 2-3hp yet still want that nice lil roar, good throttle response, and few hp over stock.
