AEM CAI or Short Ram?

I've got an '01 GT AUTO. Is the AEM CAI or Short Ram better for my situation. I'm already worried about loosing too much low end being and auto but hydrolock worries me also.

Just dont go off-roading in the celica and you shouldnt have any problems with the CAI.

Ive talked to several different ppl who works in the auto performance industry and asked which one is better, Short Ram or CAI? they're answer was that theres hardly any difference. unless you're running a turbo or some other FI system there wont be much of a difference in gains.

no difference confused not tru with Short Ram you are gettin cool/warm engine air vs. CAI is gettin fresh cold non engine air which in returns gives you more power just as long as the tubing isn't ungodly long then but the ones for the celicas are thumbsup
