They offer far better flow rates and filtration, depending on the elements they use. :thumbsup:

CAI kits are good for racing where you want to ram as much cold air up through the system, however it reduces engine response and torque because there is so much extra tubing for the air to travel through.

SRI is good for increasing engine response and torque but is prone to heat soak at lower speeds, unlike CAI. They are also cheaper!

No problem.

With every car I have worked on, that pipe leads behind the bumper to a box with no inlet! :o Which is stupid.

But you can fit CAF which is Cold Air Feed and it is a tub that rams cold air up to the SRI kit. ;)

hi,I fitted a k&n 57i to my st. It came with a flexi hose that drops down through the under tray, this forces air straight to the filter. It's only 1.8 but did see a slight improvement.

Another issue as i have found out since fitting a hybrid turbo that now sucks better than pamela anderson is the breathers they both go into the intake pipe and not only deliver hot air into your intake spoiling your efforts of a high flow filter or cold air box but chucking in Oil vapour 2. the effective mod for this is catch tanks 1 for each pipe
