Default What is better SRI or CAI?

Guys, which intake would work better with an electric supercharger? I already ordered the supercharger from ebay yesterday and now can't wait to put it on when it shows up, but the stock intake has to go. Please tell me which one would work better with my new supercharger.

get the intake manifold from the 92-95 civic vx it has a gigantic tb then install the supercharger and buy dryer vent hose and run it under the bumper for SUPER cold air

Can I somehow rig the A/C to cool air even further?

You should try the ice method. I've seen people have great dyno results by taking a half pipe and attaching it next to the intake pipe, then filling it with ice before every trip. Good for 24% more WHP.

Also I've seen these vacuum cleaners that use water as a filter and it seems to be a lot better. What if I try to filter the incoming air through water?

I seen that before and it worked very good.
BUT if you go with the water cooling method, you will also need to upgrade your exhaust, to make sure your getting the most out of your water cooled intake.
Something like this would be perfect.

Just make sure you center it well, or else once you hit vtec the rear end might spin out of control due to the high HP

That looks like a typical EGR design though. What's so special about it other than that some pipes are removed?

its forced induction. air goes into motor, combines with gas, is combusted and expands, then goes out exhaust and forces the now expanded air into the motor
