steeda SRI results

I end up getting the Steeda SRI and just installed it. It sounds Amazing. Godd improvements through out the power band. It hits hard when I hit the 2nd stage on my intake!

Good......another satisfied Steeda SRI owner/user. I have to wonder why so many people bad-mouth the thing, and prefer to place their air filter dangerously close to the ground.

Some people complain about performance issues.....none for me.

Alot of the bad mouthing I think comes from people just repeating what they have heard others say. I usually run a S/R but in the summer I do run a CAI with a 90 bend at the end so my filter is up much higher, the colder the air going into the engine, the better.

I also have a steeda short ram intake and always thought that it could have heat soak.
But I actually did some data logging with my predator recently and found out that intake air temperature is just as cold as outside temperature with my short ram. The only time intake air temp goes up is when I am not moving waiting for a light, but as soon as I am moving it takes about 5 - 10 seconds until it is back down to outside temp.

Although I am not a 100% sure I think that the only gains from a cold air intake is the actual longer seize of the intake tubing, and maybe the ram effect a cold air intake would have if it is mounted low to the ground.

YES this is exactly my point i just never say anything cause people like to argue the point so i just avod causing a problem, ive seen 1200hp diesels and the run a filter under the hood and im sure they run hotter down the track then my svtf

I think SRIs have the same results as a CAI because they're less restrictive. I like them because they require little to no maintenance.
