So the Cold Air Intake out powered the Short Ram by a little. When would you want to run the Short Ram? We think the short ram might do a little better when the car is moving and more cool air is blasting through the core support, way more air than our dyno fan can move. This would reduce the hot air spillover past the heat shield.
The Short Ram is also a good intake to consider if you drive in the rain a lot. The cold air intake moves the filter down low to where it might suck water in really wet conditions. The short ram has the filter in close to the stock location reducing the chances of accidentally hydrolocking your engine.
We are going to run the cold air intake because we think it will give more consistent power under a wider range of conditions since this is not a daily driven car. Stay tuned as we will continue to test more parts on Project 350Z.
