imo, the AEM CAI is a perfect match for an auto GT by increasing low end gains - but for shortram I'd go with Injen

yeah Injen looks nice, get a hold of a rmm heatshield too, it'll lower temps and makes it look cleaner

if you want looks, then Blitz is out of the question, so that leaves you with Injen

i believe it's more for cosmetics than funcionality. the heat shield can only do so much if the whole engine compartment has been sitting at idle at hot weather...air doesn't just stop when it meets aluminum shielding...lol rofl. it will help...just not much and not as long.

I have Injen Short Ram and heat shield. I took heatshield off because it seemed to always interfere with the Hood no matter how I adjusted it. With it off, it sounds a little louder, and I can't feel any diff in power. I have an auto gt also and I felt I got great gains from the Injen SRI. Get it, skip the heat shield and save $50

I didnt know you took that off...lol
Isaac said though, that in the summer you should keep the heatshield on due to heat soak with the Short Ram.
