THAT is not the point of this thread.

OK! so I'm sitting here talking about how my buddy just got a cold air intake for his old civic for 40 bucks from a pick a part, Then I realize, it's not cold at all... it has a power gain because it get's more air because of the cone rather than a box, but if anything it's hotter because the air is coming from the engine compartment rather than the wheel well. answer it.

Why doesn't the intake run to beside the radiator and point straight out the front? the air would be forced in the faster you go, and it would be colder than the engine compartment.

thanks!
Many car companies DO run the intake to the front of the vehicle for a "Ram air" affect. My Wifes Honda, My neigbors Mitsubishi, and PackerfanXD's Mitsubishi all have the intake air inlet at the front of the vehicle in a nice high pressure area.

The only CAI I think I have seen that grabs air from the outside is URD. It goes through the front of the truck and sits in front of the rad. The other CAI (true CAI) have the airbox right next to hole using a gasket to kinda make tight. The stock actually went into the hole. Not sure if this matters or not. Ther filter is in that box. I would imagine that the air should come in fine.

There is a TQ gain over a HP gain with a ram air and it usually isn't good for city driving.

Cold Air is mounted out in front of the radiator behind the grille (for these trucks it seems) but for most passenger cars they run a pipe from the throttle body down to the inside of the wheel housing black plastic (whatever it's called) where it connects to a conical filter. Usually you get a higher HP gain than TQ because you are sucking in cold air from the wheel well instead of forcing it in through the radiator which produces a more efficient burn.

The massive downside to a CAI is that you can hydrolock...the massive downside to a ram air is that you suck in hot air and get less power and fuel economy. Still don't know which one is worse but they both provide a slight power gain in their own way.

Personally I would go for a CAI over a ram air but I'm too scared of hydrolocking. So I just stay stock.
Hydrolock is a risk any time you put ANY intake in water. If you take your stock truck and drive it into a lake and leave the engine running- stock intake or any CAI you'll probably hydrolock. If you are driving into water like that you need a snorkel. If you are not- Then you would probably be fine with a CAI...
