yea, this isnt true at all.

 

bit of advise, for you.

 

make damn sure you get a full ram CAI, because if not, you are paying money to downgrade your intake system and performance.

 

and, it wouldnt be a bad idea to compliment your intake with exhaust. they are very complimentary, and together increase power noticeably.

 

 

good luck

so are you suggesting that a CAI is a downgrade from stock?

wrong

 

SRI is better for low to mid range RPM gain

 

CAI is better for mid to high range RPM gain

i tell you what when i took my stock intake off and put my sai on my car runs so much better and sounds mad sick, and my low rpm went up quite a bit and my mids went up a smidge but i can tell its there.

 

 

and plus I "meaning just me my self and I" think it looks sick when you pop the hood and blam fatty intake sitting in your face, looks so clean and fresh...

Its your thread! :thumbsup:

I say go short ram, and dont blow big bucks on it. Get a Egay SRI and throw the filter away, or pawn off on some one. Then but a K&N filter! Spend all of $60ish! :)

is that what you have in that picture?

 

whats so much better about injen and whatnot than the others

 

I have no piping, filter is mounted directly to TB. AEM, and others are just over priced piping, with a good but way to expensive filter! :thumbsup: So I has the NRI (no Ram Intake) :laugh:

i guess i just wont understand lol

 

im worried im going to downgrade

 

Whats the main thing you are after? I am going for clean! I want full wire tuck, already relocated radiator over flow, will be doing battery relocation, ect! Having filter mounted directly gives me a bit snappier throttle response, cleaner look, and once you are moving hot air effect is negated quite a bit! Not to mention I will never have to worry about Hydro-locking my motor! :thumbsup:

im looking for good look, slight performance if possible, and gas mileage

 

 

 

egay doesnt have crap for 2.4L only 3

 

With CAI I lost 1-2MPG.

 

With SRI I still lost a bit of mileage, due to increased airflow. You increase the amount of air going in, you can increase amount of fuel as well. So computer compensates for that. Thats why you will see some gas misers doing a restrictive intake, smaller exhausts, and even warm air intakes.

ouch

 

any hp increase?

HP increase is going to be minimal! Thats why you do I\H\E. Those all put together will net you maybe 10-12HP? Roughly! How ever mostly what you are doing is moving where you make your power! You are changing your power band.

the weapon r's are decent enough they do the job but the filters are kinda trash, best filter to use would be the K&N filter, they catch the most junk, plus you can always clean them so you dont have to replace the it when ever it gets dirty until like 10yrs or something like that...

 

 

and intakes are intakes all depends on what kind of bends your engine bay will need, and the correct size coupling to fit your TB, think of it this way the less bends the better.

That is way too much to pay!! >_< Like I said look for a CHEAP Ebay intake and swap out filter! I was into mine a total of $60.00 with shipping! :thumbsup:

I beg to differ about which filter to use...

 

I MUCH prefer AEM filters as they are "dry" and do not have to be oiled like the K + N ... The AEM is about $40 for the filter in any parts store... If you can modify it, you can just put the cone filter in place of the airbox/resonator and use the stock plastic piping..... You will get the sound, keep down heat conducting in the piping and just be overall happy!

 

THat said, my AEM SRI was $105 and fit perfectly, designed for my engine..
