ya a cold air does lil difference then a short ram so the short is just a better idea K&N is always a good way to go. but as for the filter you do have to replace every so often(not so sure how often). but instead of replacing the filter all the time, you can just clean it with a K&N recharge kit, then you have to replace it the next time.Originally posted by 03LancerES@Jun 29 2007, 09:32 PM
I decided a K&N air filter will do the trick. Since all I read about the cold air intake makes a significant to no difference at all. I think K&N will do fine, I don't have to replace it ever again plus it says the car breathes better that way.

8+ HP? where did u get your intake?Originally posted by SpeedyOZ@Oct 11 2007, 11:36 PM
Ok Airflow 101:
1)Air dosnt like bends and turns! I know it looks fancy to have 3 or 4 bends going down to the bottom of your car,but its a waste. Try to find a intake pipe with a straight design as possible,and if it has bends,make sure they arnt extreme 90 degree ones!
2)Aftermarket intake vs. OEM intake
KILLER DIFFERENCE! Not only more ponies(usually 8+) but you get a cool sucking sound when you rev up!
3)Short ram vs. Cold Air
Ok,this question is annoying sometimes. The difference is in the name.Short ram RAMS the air into a short pipe into the throttle body, while Cold Air is a long piping into a colder area of the engine bay(usually fender area). Short ram is usually a better intake for low end power and take offs,while Cold Air is mid to top end power.
That should hopefully help alot of people out there!
