Another Injen Question

Ok, not sure if this has been asked (I'm sure it has), but here goes. For a 2009 2.2L auto what is better, full cai or short. Looking for all around power. I don't want a loss of low end since I spend most of my time in town. I should receive my injen on wednesday and just wanted to know what to do before I install it.

If I have my facts straight the Short Ram configuration will help low end more, while the Cold Air configuration should help your top end more.

You wont even notice the difference in the 2. I chose short ram cause I didnt wanna buy a hydroshield.

If you get the Injen CAI, you can convert it into the SRI.

I had mine as a cai for a while and just went to sri. It does pull a bit better as the cai and there is still enough tq that it doesnt really matter. Now that I have it as a sri I can tell it drops off by like 5500-6000 rpm.
