I have the Volant CAI with the ram air. After doing a bunch of research, I decided that it would be the best. It's a true CAI like the stock one but it has better flow. It probably adds a few horses - nothing too extreme but there is a slight power increase and it sounds good too. I have some pics of it installed on my build thread. There are some videos there too but you probably cant hear the CAI because the exhaust is too loud.

I think you are thinking URD TCAI. The Volant has a box so if any water did actually make it through the front air scoop it would sit in the box.

That sucks. Great idea but only for something like an X-Runner on the track.

I have sucked in a bit of water with the stock box on my Ranger. Don't go splashing through huge puddles at 40mph.

the money you spend on the intake vs the gains you receive is very minimal. the stock is a cold air.

what I would do is save your cash, pull out the secondary filter, the fender resonator and drop in a AFE dryflow filter, after that you could modify the tube going into the TB if you wanted but i have read a few places that the second resonator on top of the motor is actually useful in helping out with TQ the way its designed.

the one in the fender is to reduce sound.

I have a K&N drop in filter with the secondary filter removed. just trying to get the truck looking good. i know there isn't much difference bewteen both intakes. I'm doing it for asthetic reasons. i know the performance gain will only be maybe 5 hp at the most.
