Cold air intake question(s)

hey guys im looking to get a cold air intake for my svt, i am looking online and im seeing these short ram intakes, but im also seeing a long tube one that runs down im guessing by the fender well and drivers side wheel. i was thinking about geting one of those and getting a hydro sleeve for the filter to keep any unwanted debris or water to get in it, so my question is will the big long tube and filter kit fit and work or should i just get a short ram?


thanks in advance, hopefully someone can help me out. -Raleigh.

I've heard that the svt intake is the best setup you can have. I would probably stick with that one. But I have a zetec and have the kn typhoon system and love it

No short ram huge waste of your money your stock filter setup is the best compared to that, the actually long tube cai is the best

Moved to "SVT Performance". The stock system you have is probably going to be the best set up you can get. Short ram intakes soak up heat from under the hood decreasing performance. If you decide to stick with the stock set up, you can always get a K&N filter for it to help it breath a bit easier. A CAI system would be sufficient and probably work about the same as your SVT set up. There are dyno results on here some where but I don't feel like searching for them right now.

i have played with a 3 intake setups (plus FI) i found that the short ram worked best for me, although i did run a snorkel tube from the lower front grill to right under the filter supplying cold air directly to the filter. i always try to go with a round filter as apposed to a flat filter. you gain more than 2x the air flow with round. i think i have a pic...

I have the aem true cold air(long) intake and it sucks up a lot of moisture in the rain. And that's with an AEM waterproof filter sleeve. I'm not sucking up water just moisture and the car runs like shit. Something to consider cause its pretty annoying
