here are both websites so you can compare for yourself... i find the dyno numbers interesting considering the price difference in products (yes steeda's torque numbers are higher, but that's an extra $120 for 1.6 ft-lbs more torque)
aside from all of that... i would go with a (true) cold air intake over a short ram given the option (which is why i stated that even if you gave it to me for free i wouldn't run it...)
Yes from a price/performance ratio the fswerks is better, but for that just do the drop in k&n and snorkel delete and get the same numbers for $40
Get the steeda if you want as much possible power, combine it with a snorkel delete or newmission mod for even better power.
