Yes, of course a cold air induction would give better gains than a short ram. That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying that my current setup of uprated panel filter and short ram induction kit is giving better gains than just an uprated panel filter and an OEM air box.
Where did I say I think it's faster? When did noise come into this?
Now listen closely: All I'm saying is that my K&N short ram intake and my K&N panel filter is giving better air flow (which would mean gains on a more powerful engine) than a standard air box and a K&N panel filter. That's it. Nothing more.
hmm never heard that before (sideways whats your name? can`t be bothered typing absolu... life is too short!). Makes perfect sense. Battery relocation would be a pain in the arse though, short front end = no space
