Default What do you get more with???

I was wondering about the intakes the other day. I have a Short Ram and the Other piece to make it cold Air. I was told by i guy localy that short ram makes more power but cold air is better?? Is this true? Which is more effective??

cold air is actually more powerful but dangerous if you live where it rains a lot... thats why i stick with the short ram. i'm in washington.

Cold air long intake pipe to keep it away from the engines' heat short ram just a short intake how do you have both?! And intakes wouldn't had a whole lot of HP it's a good start get air flowing get your engine breathing. If your planning to turbo up your car short ram's better especially if you've got an intercooler what's the point of getting colder air if it's just gonna heat up in the compressor then get cooled down again?

injen sells the tube that connects from the sri and converts it to a cai, you can modify the aem's also to do the same thing, and sri's and cai's are useless once you have a turbo w/ i/c as most turbo setups use a sri "style" intake which will come right off the side of the turbo

Yea.. mine is the two piece like the injen! you can have it short ram or cold air all a matter of cilicone instert thing that you screw on! The only difference ive noticed is the sound when vtec kicks in. with the cold air is deeper and not as loud as to the short ram being louder and more of a raspy sound.

true, but once it passes through all the piping and such (which gets hot also) the air is warmed a lil there
