Quick Question: About Air Intakes

I have looked around the forums but I can't seem to get a definite answer, I've had True CAI's before back when I had my Jeep Liberty it was actually getting direct fresh cold air but besides the point.. If I got a Short Ram Intake like the Weapon R Dragon would it damage my engine because some are saying that the warm air from the engine bay is bad.

Here's my thought though say I was able to wrap the tubing in that wrap that claims to keep hot air out (JcWhitney claim) would I be still damaging my engine or what? I don't want an Injen CAI because honestly I drive in Oklahoma where the weather changes in 5 minutes with that being said I just want a Short Ram Intake.. Any props on the Weapon R's? Also will an Exhaust help with an SRI?

SRI isnt going to damage your engine. Cold air is preffered for better performance and high end power and short ram is for low end power. and hmm i would say ditch the weapon R intake and get the Injen intake because you can adjust it to cold air or short ram whenever you want

R.I.P. :(

See that's the issue though I personally can't take off my front bumper and stuff in order to do the CAI for the Injen kit because it's my daily driver and I ain't got time with work and school..

you do not need to remove the bumper. just the headlight.

Or remove the right front tire and mudguard (I find that easier, alot more room to maneuver)
