Intake question?

Ok so im on the market for a new intake for my jk but im not sure if i should get a short ram or a cold air intake...i want as much gain as possible and i know a cold air will give me more but i take my jeep in some pretty deep water sometimes and arnt CAIs located at the bottom of your engine near the wheel well?...which would be a problem if i was in somewhat deep water..any way what intake will give me the most height about the water WITHOUT having to get a snorkel and is also not a piece of garbage and will give me some added hp? thanks!

honestly, if you're in the market for HP gain you'd have to do a lot more then just get the cold air intake.

for instance, I added a CAI, cat-back exhaust, throttle body spacer, and a superchips programmer and I barely saw any difference. I got maybe .5 mpgs more and a bunch of freaking noise. which is ok because i like noise.

now i just got regeared and it was a huge difference maker. i am not getting 10-11 mpg's anymore but 15mpgs. regearing made all the difference and was by far the best bang for the buck.

heres some videos. this is all on stock 373s and an auto tranny.

What you are looking for doesn't quite exist. Getting colder air and not losing intake height without a snorkel? Not sure how that could be done.. Snorkel or the new Humvee snorkel is the best option. Going in deep water with a stock intake is a bad enough idea as it is, should really consider that snorkel, or a backup mill lol

I agree with Goody's post above. And regardless of which one you go with, you should also look into extending your breather tubes.

I'd go with a snorkel kit, you will get the best of both worlds. Able to keep your intake high out of water range and you will also get cold air coming in.
