cold air intakes have longer pipes.

they call this one a cold air intake but i thought a cold air kinda goes past the battery and kind curves towards the ground right?but they say one like you showed me is.the one im getting is way smaller than that one you showed me.

right and thats why im getting a short intake. cause i would rather have better throttle response. if the filter sits at the bumper less air flow but colder air.thats why i was wondering which was better.

if you had a turbo, id think cold air would be better..
but like you said, if you sucked some water up there, you might freeze your engine.

yeah, because cold air has smaller molecules meaning its denser, and the point of a turbo is to compress air, so itll take that and compress it even more.
