CAI or SRI?
I know a bit about the differences between a cold air intake, and a short ram intake, but I want some people's input who have experienced either or!
I am driving an '03 Duratec, and i currently have a Magnaflow 2.25" cat-back exhaust. Will either intake change the exhaust note, or will I only notice a difference in intake noise?
Also, I know the SRI's are prone to heat-soak, where the air warms up during city stop-and-go driving, and causes poor acceleration. I do a lot of city driving, will I really notice this a lot, or not so much? We do have pretty hot summers here.
I know CAI's can get waterlogged, or even suck water into the engine, how likely is this to happen? I live in western NY and we get a fair share of rain, and lots of snow and slush in the winter. I don't want to mess up my engine.
I want the intake that is the MOST practical, I know they each have their pros and cons, but what is the best way to go??
Insert opinions here! :)
