Uh, the AEM CAI
is one tube that snakes its way down towards the driver's side wheel in order to take in cooler air. There is only one place to attach the filter to it, and that's at the end. If you wanted to make it shorter, then you COULD cut the tube down, but that would be stupid because:
1. It would look gay.
2. You spent more for a CAI
and just wound up making it into a Short Ram
, which you could have paid less for in the first place.
3. The intake doesn't have some magical power that makes the air colder when it enters it
, it simply reaches into areas where cooler air can be found, and sucks it in from there. Believe it or not, but some people actually think that the CAI Intake
is hooked up to the AC, and that it chills the air.
4. If you were to cut the CAI
down to make it look like a Short Ram
, it wouldn't work, and you could fuck up your car. NOTICE that in the picture below, if you were to cut the tube, you would remove a piece of the pipe that has a hose connected to it.
Also, I assume that he is talking about cutting the pipe down, cause that's the only thing I can make sense of.
