Short ram intake

I have 2014 mustang v6. I've been looking for a short ran intake but cant find one. Any suggestions where can I purchase one? I prefer ram than CAI.

From what I've seen, they don't make one for the newer Mustangs. IIRC, their testing showed no power difference between coldair and ramair so companies just stuck with CAI.

With the CAIs available on this generation Mustang, it would be near impossible to hydro lock the engine due to a CAI unless you submerged the damn thing in a flood or left the filter off like a derp.

Nothing to worry about.

Some CAIs run down the fender and are need the bottom of the car. If it sucks in water you get hydro lock....not good.

Oh ok thanks. Well maybe that's the case with other cars but I've never seen a cai for the mustang that runs all the way down the fender.

Some people said that heavy rain can cause water to get sucked into the engine. Anyone?

^ Maybe on the gt's since they have the heat extractor vents but I've never heard any v6 guys have that problem. I wouldn't worry about it.

Personally i think the stock air box is very well designed.... looks at how it pull air from the front of the car. It's a tightly sealed box so no hot air from the engine bay get's sucked in... so it controls intake temps rather well. That being said i didn't care for the stock tube and the ugly air resonators so i picked up the AirAid MIT and a aFE drop in filter... very happy with the results...

Actually the Mustang CAI are kinda like the short rams on other cars.


You would have to fully submerge and submarine your car to hydro lock a mustang (anything is possible tho).

I agree and have been considering that same route with replacing the stock intake tube as well.

I've been through 2 aftermarket intakes Airaid and Injen. Different style and approach from both and the power difference I felt from both was almost the same. I don't want to get into this on here but I will mention that I was toying with an idea and enlighten me if someone has tried but what if you took one of these after market CAI and shorted it from where it connects to the throttle body. It might help with the list trq down low these intakes have a tendency to rob under 3K rpm.
