The AEM CAI give you low end torque, which where I think we need it most..as the Injen gives you high end torque. Choice is yours.

And I wouldn't recommend getting the bypass valve unless you will be driving through flooded areas or lakes. The valve just decreases the already highly unlikely chance of soaking your filter. If your really nervous get a splash guard. Again...choice is yours.

I dont think youll feel much if any difference between the two Intakes. I say save your money, keep what your Injen Short Ram and use the other $250+ on a different upgrade. But hey...thats just my 2 cents.

Knowing that you live in Carson, Cali, you don't have to worry about heavy rain storms that are dangerous to Cold Air Intakes. I say go with an AEM or Injen CAI. They're both the same thing...

AEM's Air Bypass valve for Cold Air Induction Systems virtually elimates the unlikely chance of water ingestion should the filter element become wet from deep puddles, rain, hail, sleet or snow-or any other scenario in which the filter element could encounter or become submerged in water. The valve installs along the upper portion of the inlet pipe on the same axis as the throttle body centerline. Should a drop in pressure occur within the pipe due to filter submersion, the valve shuts down induction at the filter and routes incoming air through its external orifices, eliminating any chance of water ingestion

"Air bypass valve virtually eliminates the chance of hydro-lock in the event the filter of your AEM Cold Air induction system becomes submerged in water. The valve installs along the upper portion of the inlet pipe and shuts down induction at the filter when it becomes submerged, rerouting air through its external diaphragm to keep water out and air flowing in."

A money making scheme. Your only every going to need one if you drive through lakes!!

I suggest that you get the AEM CAI. I love mine.
