Bwoody short or long ram air?

Need help deciding between bwoody short ram and bwoody true ram air (long version). Heard the true ram air is a difficult install, not looking for a headache here. Also are there any proven dyno results out there without tuning. Thanks y'all

Re: Bwoody short or long ram air?

Not to hard to install if you are mechanically inclined just have to remove and relocate the washer tank and extend some wiring. Intake air temps are similar/better than stock and noticed an increase in throttle response. My only issue is that the lower bracket design sucks and will break off, it's just a matter of time!!

yeah actually since i posted this i did some research and its super easy lol i could do it no problem. Two things i don't like are the ugly washer fluid box, and the bracket breaking off. How expensive are replacement brackets and do you have to remove the wheel well lining every time to replace the bracket?? You could understand how that could become annoying lol. Thanks

Bwoody short or long ram air?

So I've done about as much reading about CAIs as I can stomach...

Bought a new '14 SRT last week, third WK2 in two years, by far what I should have been driving this whole time. My issue is, the 392 just isn't as throaty as I'd like, so it's intake time.

With dyno results showing almost double the CFM intake, it only makes sense to make the move. I've researched Injen (2 types), Fastlane (which seems like total BS), Hennessy's (very little useful info), and then BWoody's, which seems the most logical.

Pertaining to the BWoody options, and lord knows there's been a lot of talk about this God-forsaken washer bottle nonsense (gen 1, 2, 3, etc), I remain on the fence between a $550 true CAI that will require I "jerry rig" my SRT, or a high-dollar, seemingly conventional short CAI. I guess the big question is, has the evolution of this true CAI by BWoody's resulted in any improvements in this washer bottle business?

Has anyone ever compared performance, REAL WORLD, between the long and short BWoody's options?

Noticed BWoody's now sells the Injen CAI on their website as of 8/22/14. Curious. A big variable to consider is that the Injen comes with heat shields and is $100 less than the BWoody's shorty...

Rambling decisions decisions...

Re: Bwoody short or long ram air?

Difference between bwoody short ram velocity plus and the injen is the bwoody is a 4 inch tube while injen tapers down to a smaller opening. I like the bwoody short ram more than the injen but only issue is there is no heat shield

Yeah, I noticed that- a lot less taper on the BWoody's too...

Bwoody short or long ram air?

Well there is a bloke on this forum who knows where to get a CAI just like the Bwoody one but without having to remove the washer bottle and it's made in Australia I think the cost of that item was $600 but it looks good and works , and also Chad from Black Ops is working on a new True CAI but I'm not sure how far away he is from displaying that item , So there's still a couple more to wait and investigate :-)

Oh and the one I mentioned that was made in Australia is a True long air induction like the Bwoody not a short air

Re: Bwoody short or long ram air?

exactly. I have a k&n intake for my old 5.7 wk2 and i might addapt the heat shield for the bwoody short ram so i get the big tube but also the heat shield that lowers air temps

Re: Bwoody short or long ram air?

I just really dont want to mess around with the washer fluid? I like the stock setup it holds alot of fluid and works well stock it isnt worth it for me. I wud love to have the true cai but that fluid box is ugly lol and i hear the pump it comes with is crap
