A short ram air intake (SRI) is another type of aftermarket modification that can be made to a vehicle's engine. It is an alternative to the cold air intake (CAI) system and serves a similar purpose of improving the airflow into the engine for potential performance gains. However, there are some key differences between the two.
A short ram air intake replaces the stock airbox and intake tubes with shorter, straighter, and often wider-diameter components. Unlike a cold air intake, which aims to draw in cooler air from outside the engine bay, a short ram intake typically keeps the air filter and intake tube within the engine compartment. This means that the air being drawn into the engine is generally warmer, as it is in closer proximity to the heated components of the engine.
The primary advantages of a short ram air intake are as follows:
1. Increased air flow: The shorter, wider intake tubes and improved filter design reduce restrictions and allow for a higher volume of air to enter the engine. This increased airflow can potentially enhance engine performance, particularly at higher RPMs.
2. Improved throttle response: With improved airflow, the engine can respond more quickly to throttle inputs, resulting in improved acceleration and throttle response.
3. Simplified installation: Short ram air intakes are generally easier to install compared to cold air intakes because they don't require the relocation of the air filter outside the engine bay. This can make them a more straightforward and cost-effective modification.
