1. please work on your grammar- I'm not sure I even understand what you said but I think you want to know whether a CAI or SRI would be better for a 4 cylinder Accord

2. I don't think there are any SRIs that outperform a CAI, if so please provide an example as the av6 is not one of them

So what I'm trying to say is get a CAI- the only reason to get an SRI is because you're worried about hydrolocking your engine, which is impossible unless you're going through 2 foot deep puddles as the intake filter has to be completely submerged

sry bout my grammar.. well someone said AEM SRI outperforms CAI in this thread http://www.v6performance.net/forums/...air+intake+cai
Quote:
It's been proven at the track that the SRI outperforms the CAI. Notice how AEM conveniently leaves the dyno results for the Short Ram off of its site? It's because they don't want people to know that their cheapest intake for our car outperforms the much more expensive CAI and V2 CAI. Sad but true. If I'd known this a year ago, I could've saved $150 and gotten the Short Ram instead of the V2
so my question is SRI better on 4cyl too?

CAI will shift your power towards the upper end, while sacrificing some Low End, SRI will not sacrifice low end, but the gains are small... i am not sure about the effects on a 7th gen. btw, 6th gens, 5th gens and 7th gens all have an AV6. so specify your generation

I have a CT Icebox and i love it, i would never trade it in for a v2....

really, does it really take 2 ft of water to mess up ur engine? i have friends who are afraid of this problem, they take off their cai's every winter so they dont hydrolock their cars. i told them that its going to be ok unless u drive thru a foot of water or so but they dont believe me lol. also they claim that if it rains while u park ur car out in the open, u wont be able to start the car since water will get in the intake....i think theyre just jealous that i got a sweet deal on an cai lol sorry for the originator of the thread, didnt meant to "hijack" ur post but this caught my attention...and from what i know, cai is better than short ram....
