CAI or cold air intake

There are two kinds of CAI, longtube and those which utilize a box similar to the stock system

Longtube CAIs
these are popular but not neccissarily the best, a long tube (think short ram but longer) extends usually downward toward the front bumper. Depending on where you live they could cost you your motor, these are notorious for flooding motors from the filter being submerged in puddles, a slight precautionary fix for this problem is to install a bypass valve which in the event of submergance wouldcause the intake to breathe from the engine bay, this also requirescutting of the intake for installation. Or one could seek a CAI shield from www.myfordperformance.com . The relocation of the MAF into this long tube has also been noted to cause cold start problems for many

some of these include

AEM: see short ram
