An intake alone isn't gonna do it.

LMFAO, you are talking about an intake doing this?.... I will bet there is a 99.9% chance that you won't feel ANY different after JUST an intake. It will do..... nothing. NOW if you were to change your intake, throttle body, intake manifold, and a few other things... you will most likely feel a difference...

Not entirely true. The stock intakes on alot of cars are full of sharp turns and are very restrictive. Depending on the car, it could helps greatly or very little.

1. From most intakes I have seen, the aftermarket counterparts are not very different, look at 05+ Mustang intakes.
2. If you simple change the intake alone, and not the rest of the restrictiveness on the car ( throttlle body throttle body space, and the intake manifold to start with) then it will have little to no effect.

1. Theres a difference between short ram and CAI. Short rams are only intended to free restriction. CAI are intended to introduce colder air.

2. Most factory throttle bodies and intake manifolds are restriction free enough to generate at least 150 more horsepower than stock before even thinking of the throttle body or intake manifold actually choking the motor. Getting just an intake would replace the most restrictive part of the intake setup, making it flow just as freely as the rest can handle, rather than the intake being a bottleneck.

1. What's your point? Where did shot ram come into this conversation? I was refferring to cold air intakes.

2. Maybe with enough Nitrous or Forced Induction, but for naturalls aspirated purposes.... no.
