Arrow COLD AIR INTAKE HELP: AEM v2

hi, i was wondering what is the differnce between a AEM cold air intake, and the AEM cold air intake v2...

im gussing the first one is a V1 and the 2nd is a v2 which is version 1 and 2...

what is the difference bwteen.

i saw a AEM for about 100 bucks, but its V1 i think, and the V2 i saw for about 250

but still, what is the difference between the V2 and the other AEM cold air intakes?!

V1 is one piece, v2 is two piece. v2 is louder than v1. supposed to be better gains as well.

also - i don't think there's a bypass valve available for the v2.

To be honest, I have the V2 and IMO it isn't worth $100 more than the V1 CAI.

In fact, I'm considering selling my AEM V2 and replacing it with an AEM Short Ram because the Short Ram offers better gains. The V2 is over-rated (at least it is for our 6th gen's, some other cars, like the 7th gen V6's, gain a lot of power from the V2).

SRI = Short Ram Intake.

Its where the filter sits in the engine bay itself

AV6 = Automatic V6

for those who have SRI, hows the sound? Im bone stock and im still kind of sketchy on modding my car. I dont want my car to be so damn loud all it will do is get noticed by cops since Temecula has the most cops in Riverside county. I mean i dont want to sound like i got twin turbo but then its really going 40mph u know
so how is it overall? oh and this is without any mods im talkin just the SRI on stock exhaust thanks
