Here's my Dilema.... I used to have a could air intake. I liked the sound of it and all but the only problem was that i didn't have a bypass valve so i sucked in water.... Ouch, yea so i planned on getting a cold air installed from the dealer so i have nothing to worry about but will having a cold air shorten the long term life of my engine? will having a bypass valve eliminate any fear of water getting into the manifold.... and is having a cold air intake wise to have while having a supercharger....? I'm thinking of getting a short ram but i miss that sound of when you switch gears and you hear the intake suck in air, almost like a whistle, which i think you won't get as much if you get a short ram....
