There are trade-offs to both. The short ram is going to be more responsive because the tube is shorter, so you will get gains high in the rpm range. In theory this is how it should work, however a short ram is going to be located around abundant amounts of heat given off from your engine, so you your power gains will not be consistent, and on hot days you may actually lose some horsepower with this mod.

The cold air intake is the better choice if you are looking for consistent gains in power due to the fact that it is located away from the central source of heat. The only real caveat to the cold air intake is that you may potentially get water into your engine if you are driving around through puddles often.

Personally I think Short ram is a bad idea, unless you encase it in the stock air box and have a tube drawing air from somewhere other than one of the hottest parts of the engine bay.
