well the v2 is a cold air isnt it? id say just the regular aem cold air, you wont see too much aof a gain over the normal one with the v2, maybe an extra hp or 2 if that much really

go with short ram for a few reasons.

1. Cheaper
2. Battery acts as a heat sheid
3. Easier to get to filter for cleaning
4. take out ur air resignator and u have more open air to suck in.
5. From Cold air to short ram ur not gonna notice anyone hp gains over the other.

Actually, I'd have to say CAI. The 1st one is fine, and actually makes more power in some cases than the V2, which "has a better sound", I didnt care about sound enough to shell out the extra cash for the same or weaker HP gains. Try searching this one, there's more than likely a ton of posts on it.

I have the V2 on my Si with the H23 and it sounds amazing. Loud and great sound. It probally does have a lil more HP gain than over the regular AEM intakes. You might check ebay. You can probally find a V2 on there for cheaper than stores would charge. If u can find a good price i would diffently get it; like i said i love mine. Alot of people say though just to get an ebay intake and buy a better filter.It all depends on who u talk to really.

I wouldn't mind having a V2 for the fact of cleaning it....and it doesn't get as dirty as quickly.

If you want....I'll buy a V2 and I will sell you my CAI used.

If u have your intake too close to your battery then u might experience engine fires my buddy had a 3rd gen lude and he didnt relocated hid battery and he ran a short ram intake, i dont know wat happened but his engine was up in flames :wow :(

its a pipe. you can buy an ebay intake and K&N filter and basically have the same thing as an AEM intake. i just wouldn't leave their crappy filters on, they're known to deteriorate.
