okay my friend was talking to someone and that person told and even convinced my friend that a short ram intake with a heat guard is better than a CAI(performance wise), he also said this is because the short ram took in more air than a CAI. i always thought and believed that CAI was so much better b/c it literally sucked in cold air to ur engine which produces more power. Can someone please help me and tell me which is true, b/c now i am completely confused. and a detailed description of how it works would be great b/c i would love to prove this kid wrong.

CAI's are better. Sucking in cold air is better than sucking in more hot air because colder air is more dense.

a cooler air charge will produce more power than an equal volume of warm/hot air because there are less actual oxygen molecules in the given volume of air

Mike is correct, although it is sometimes hard to tell, CAI's almost allways produce better dyno numbers than short ram systems.

the only way a short ram would be good is if you took of your hood, cold air runs better i had them both, and i like the CAI
