For a '96 318is.. does anyone really believe that i should spend the extra paper on a CAI or should i just forget about the 1-2 horsepower and go with a short RAM AIR intake?

short ram sucks in ALOT of hot air from the eninge and it is very noticeable. when i had short ram it ran shitty during the day when it was hot but great at nigiht when it was cool...go with cai or find a heat shield (not sure where u can find one tho...)
