There will be little if any diffance between the too. Shortram is also safer for your motor.

That doesnt look like a good one being that there is nothing provided to stop your intake from sucking up water. Hydrolocking is probably the last thing you would want to do.

if you go cai just get a sheild. if thats the intake in the picture i dont see how its going to fit the svt. all in all i dont think there is much room for error in intakes. its an aluminum pipe. just a choice of short ram or cold air

the hydrolock issue has been discussed litteraly to death. Get your CAI and enjoy it. I have had NO problems with mine and I live in Houston and we get a lot of rain .... usually anyway lol

cp products is the crap they sell on ebay.... in general the review of this type of product is:

the overall product is a so-so imitation but welds are weak on the brackets... ive known people that bought these imitation CAI's and the biggest complaint is that the brackets break.... seems right for the money..but dont expect to get a long life out of it. Then again, u'll find people that have bought these cheap CAI's and say they have no problems.. Save the EXtra 100 bux and get a real deal CAI, IMO.
