OK what the deal hear, theres a big arguement that SRI (short ram intake) isn't better than CAI (cool air intake). I have an injen SRI and it works fine for me. You guys think CAI is the way to go? Some of my friends say that CAI doesn't do much as far as noticable hp gain. IMO SRI sounds awsome. :mrgreen:
CAI = better because it gathers in cooler air. Cooler denser air = better =
A SRI gather warmer air and hence is known as a warm air intake. A CAI should get about 50-100% better power over its SRI counterpart. Seen a ton of dynos with different intakes on the K20a2. The SRI's averaged around 7-9whp...the CAI's averaged around 13-17whp.
its already been said, but just had to reiterate. Cold air=good, warm
have you ever noticed how your car feels a bit more powerful first thing in the morning? before the engine gets up to tempreture and starts warming its air intake? build a custom heat shield and cold air box! maybe even a feeder pipe from the front of the car up to the airbox. not too low as to possibly draw in water through puddles, but low enough so as to bypass the hot air above the engine.
thats my opinion anyway.
hehe, yea. she was always so happy when i took her out on trips at 4am-5am. wouldnt complain one bit.
my sri doesnt give me any problems. works fine for me. I guess ill give cai a try if its "better". :mrgreen:
Well yes cold is better but i'd rather have a SRI cuz the long tubes from the CAI always frightened me like as if one day i'd need the space for something important.
One drawback about CAI's is they are a SOB to put in. Have to remove wheel wheels usually and front bumper at times...SRI's drop right in, in 30 minutes or less.
