[QUOTE=brfatal;376202]You have that backwards.

I'm speaking of the "hot box" designs like Cobb. I've personally never heard any short ram under hood intake that's enclose in a hot box make the audible noise that a CAI makes during acceleration...

The designs without a box certainly are a little louder than a CAI...that I def agree with. But open designs "scream" without a box. I personally don't care for the tone a short ram makes without a box. But again, this is just an opinion OP.

Plenty good until and good until are different stories, but flatly put, if you're stage 2 you should have an intake because it's a worthwhile investment.

The AEM V1 SRI I had 10-11 years ago was outstandingly loud. It was the most annoying sound ever. My APS 70mm CAI and current Perrin BigMAF SRI are silent. It varies intake to intake, but I've never heard of a CAI making that awful suction sound. I imagine the fender well does a good job insulating sound.

^LOL^

Any ram intake is certainly annoying. That's why I say CAI all day if you're buying one. The tones are def horrible.

My buddy Josh has a 10' STi and runs the Cobb SF. I've driven and ridden in his and I think it sounds horrible!

Best thing to do OP is hit up a car show or meet and find someone with the 3 different types. Open/Closed ram and CAI. See which one you care for.

^This

Or you can also Use Youtube to get an idea.

I use a "Boxed" style short ram personally and I think it sounds fine. You can hear the BPV sneeze between shifts and a little bit of suction noise but it's not overpowering.

We don't carry the AEM, but if you decide to go with the COBB I'll be happy to hook you up.
