The difference comes in whether or not its a short ram, what i have, and a full intake like what justin has. Yes they do the same thing, that's why i said you could do what steve is doing and get the knock off. I call it that because its exactly the same as my injin. Could be different in how thik the metal is but thats it. Maybe the filter is cheaper. You can always put a better filter on it.
As for hydrolocking it.. i would really worry about it. Not like you are gonna be fording rivers and s***. They make dry chargers for the filters to prevent them from pulling water and they also make bypass valves. If i put he filter in the bumper id really only have to worry about puddles that are 2 feet or more lol. The dry charger takes care of splash bro.
The diff in a short ram vs a full cai is basically the intake temperatures. A short ram will pull air thats 15 to 30 degrees hotter than ambient while a full intake may be 1 to 5 over ambient. Thats where you will make the most of an intake.
