Hey guys I was wondering what the difference between Cold Air Intakes were to Short Ram Intakes? Also is it possible to have Cold Short Ram Intake? Is there a big difference between them? is there a hot or warm air intake? haha sorry im a little new at the engine mods.

A short ram intake still sucks air in from the engine bay. A Cold Air Intake sucks in air from outside of the engine bay. Basically, one is longer than the other. You can also use a short ram in conjunction with a hood scoop. A shortram is a better idea when the temperature of the incoming air isn't quite as important as how much air is flowing. Namely - cars with very well-ventilated engine bays, or turbo cars. Naturally aspirated cars, especially ones that don't have huge air demands, are better off with a cold-air intake. Even though the intake is longer, the cooler air will help make more power.

Nope.. cold air intake is cold air... the intake head is close to the headlight or down near the fender. you can't have a short ram short pipe and get cold air like that.
