Short ram definetely louder. See my post about my new AEM Ram Air Shield kit that is coming out any day now to help protect the AEM CAI from water...

What are the chances that the CAI will suck up water to ur engine?? I live in Sacramento which there is not much of heavy raining,maybe couples of times, but not much. Do you think I am safe for the CAI??
