Short ram intake VS Cold air intake
Im trying to decide on which intake to purchase... I live in cali and frequently drive out to the desert and mountains. What are the biggest differences between the two? And which is going to have better performance?

CAI will deliver a colder denser charge and deliver better low end torque. A SRI will deliver warmer air but will increase throttle response and top end power. It down to length of the intake and what you prefer.

I enjoy my SRI, sounds great.

Now with a SRI on a scale of 1 to 10 how hard is it to install?

SRI is a 2 on the scale.

Side note: On the Versa both the SRI or CAI would deliver the same amount of torque and hp increase. It is just a matter of preference.

Do have a question though. Which option would be best for a CVT? The average rpms that I see of my V is 2 to 3k. In this case, my knowledge would lean more to a CAI, but I still wanted to ask.

Cold air is not hard but time consuming, you have to remove the front bumper. Plus I like the response of the short ram, and I don't have to worry about hydro lock. Both are good for some extra power and sound, its all in what you like more.

Is there a reliable website to order the SRI from I was looking at and they have two on there for the 2011 Nissan not sure which one would be better though. Any opinions on which one?

Takeda is the one most run. I think someone used the weapon r, not sure though.
