Quick Intake Question

Hi all, Just a quick question. I have read all the cold air intake threads and such, and I understand why their bad, but I still have one question because I never could tell just what kind of intake IS acceptable. Is having an intake ok if it is a cone filter on the end of a very short tube with no bends in it? i.e. everything still under the hood. Then it is not taking in any cold air at all, just MORE air which I think would be good because the intercooler cools it all anyways.

Thanks in advance,

Mark

Yes that is a short ram. The problem isnt the "cold air" its the bend in the piping with the CAI. Go with the short ram.

So let's say I had no other mods and the short ram would be my first and only mod, would it still be perfectly fine and purely beneficial?

It wouldn't hurt anything, but you wouldn't see any gains from it (aside from noise).
