I know I wont be the only one to say this, but dont get a short ram. Save up the couple more bux and buy the full CAI replacement it is so much more worth the money, the gains are so much better overall.

You could probably find a full cai for a little bit more.

positives - no worry of hydrolocking the motor, but that is very rare
- It's a bit louder than a cai

negatives - no gains really at all
- waste of money

from what I have heard, there is no real difference between the two. The difference in the air temp is like just a few degrees. The hp difference being maybe 1 hp.

Do just what SpecJoe suggested. I did this about a month ago, and I have felt a small "seat of the pants" increase in power. Before, my car wouldn't chirp third, now I can on a good day.

And don't even spend the $140 or whatever. Get a flange for a 240sx, buy a K&N cone filter and build yourseld one. It'll cost you like $70-$80 CDN. Just my $.02 worth.

Oh yeah, and the sound is just killer.

i have short ram and would recommend it, even if its like 3whp less than a CAI you wont feel a difference, and you dont have to worry about hydrolock :) so thats good, and it sounds really mean, i have nismo header and apexi ws2 exhaust and like 80% of the time i hear the intake over exhaust it sounds really good, would def. recomend

Check out AEM mine was just over $200.00, I had a Tenzo short ram for awhile but I only paid $35.00 for the cone and adapter plate. So like every one else here is saying go with the true CAI
