Do the cold air, unless you're good at fabricating heat shields. I built this one, but you don't have to remove the bumper.

Mine looked like this B4 I got my new headlights and couldn't clear the tube.

If you go with a short ram, it will definitely be safer against water entering the engine......

a heatshield is not difficult to make for a short ram. i did mine in cardboard then transfered to some tin used for swap cooler ducting and added a thermal barrier using some old school oven mitts, zip ties and velcro. Works like a champ. all it takes is some time

318TI,

The first buttefly valve is the ASC. This is used for traction control. Directly behind is the actual TB.

The cable and motor you see in the pic is the cruise control motor.
