Both do the same thing, they basically just make a cool sound. Here is a good comparison video.

It seems like the remaining OEM intake pieces are helping the new intake get cold air from the outside though!

hmm and just how do you know that? Also you can still pull the silencers off the snorkel and just leave it.

Look officer I'm not being a smart ass I'm just saying if you caught me you were speeding too.

I took all of the stock air box components out, looks clean and I don't see how it can help unless your going really fast, as in 100 + mph. The ram intake sit where the hood closes so no air getting to it that way.

Tubtub has the Fujita CAI, and I have been for a ride in his car, sounds really good. Doesn't have the same response as the short ram, oh and as for those videos air intakes do add power you need a tune other wise the ecu will not allow the any extra power, Mart and Moog made a video proving this with a cat-back exhaust on a forester I think.
