i like them both but i personal would go with active autowerks intake it is sick they got this housing thing but if u want ed to go with those go with the short for ease of installing but if u potrentially want more power go with the long but ithink u will have to cut into the wheel well

Go with the CAI(long one). The short one will suck in more hot air than your regular filter box unless you build a heat shield somehow.
I am sure the CAI will fit without any cutting of any kind.

are u sure the CAI one will fit without any cutting? it looks so long? and to fit into a 318 front end? i dont know it just doesnt looks like it has enough room for the MAFS and all that piping but maybe... cuz i guess you get rid of that black plastic piping huh, but i might be able to move around a few things to get it all the way down there haha im gonna go look at it!

david whats your max budget for a CAI or short intake? you realize you can built your own and make a head shield to go with it.

save yourself at least half the price.

I bought the long one and so far it has been good. There is no cutting of the wheel well. I wasn't to happy with them. It is a good intake but i have the sports edition and i had to take out the brake ducts and the tempture sensor. I remounted the temp sensor but there was nothinig i could do about the brake duct. Over all it was a good intake. Maybe i will post some pics up. I painted it all black to look stock. Also i would go with the longer one because i tried just hooking up the upper piece of the intake and it didn't sound as good as it did with the whole thing in.

if you know what angle to bend the pipes at, you can get some tube stock and have an exhuast shop bend it as you need to fit where you want it to fit. One thing I have noticed is that CAIs and ellipsoids dont really fit in that space. Once I actually get the propper HID kit back and install the whole set up, then I plan to make a custom heat sheild and have a custom pipe cut and bent to my specs.

tube stock is way of saying whatever mind of metal stock you want in a tube shape. In this case, aluminum is best due to heat retention/repulsion properties. $30-50 should be enough to cover material, cutting, and bending. If you wanted to go extra-cheap, you can use aluminum flex tubing for dryer vents and rig a system of bracets and zip ties to hold it in place and shape.
