what will give the better MPG ? I need some help picking one. PLz help
Cost isn't that high, DC CAI is like $180 off versaspeed. Intakes are usually bolt on, so you don't need a shop really, maybe if you are weary of disassembling a few parts of the engine bay. If you don't have fogs, some peeps drill holes into the fog cover to let colder air in while driving, works either way.i had no freaking idea about intakes before i read this thread...
i realised something called SRI and CAI exist after reading this thread.
any idea whats the cost of intakes...
and what kind of shops install intakes? (what genre of shops)
Yeah I chose the SRI over the CAI for the main reason of being safer from getting it water logged. My last car was an '93 Integra with a very low CAI and it got soaked when I drove through a flooded street. (It was a dumb idea)They both are really going to be about the same.
SRI are slightly louder and more safe in wet conditions....not to mention it is easier to install and service the filter. Thats why I went with that on my Honda.
I had that happen in the V not long ago same thing as you lucky for me I got the car running again after a few days.Yeah I chose the SRI over the CAI for the main reason of being safer from getting it water logged.

If I believe correctly when you drive the SRI actually takes in air that flows toward the engine not hot air from the engine bay. (As with most naturally aspirated engines). The only time that I can see the SRI taking in hot air is if you stand idle with your engine on for a long time. I mean a long time, not just a few minutes at a stop light / sign. The SRI is shorter so that why it could be so close to the engine, the air does not have to travel far and not make any sharp turns to reach the engine. But then again, as with most posts about the Versa SRI/CAI, it is mostly up to personal preferences since both provides about the same improvement in torque and hp.I highly reccomend the aem cold air intake because you get the best bang for the buck because the short ram intake still takes hot air in out of the engine compartment thus defeating the purpose of a cold air intake....
