Default Short ram intake VS PDM/GANZ flow intake & K&N filter, which one is better?

Hi all,
i have both types of intake lying around and now i'm just deciding which one is better.

i tried both on and here's what i feel
pdm gives better high end, the power won't die past 5500 rpm
but the short ram has better mid range power and sounds better.

here's pics of both intakes

the short ram:


pdm racing:


comments/suggestion/opinions plz~

is there anyway to improve the high end of the short ram intake by using a better cone air filter (i'm not sure what's the air filter in side now, looks like K&N coz it's pink.. ) and an air/fuel ratio controller?

thx in advance

well i would say if the short ram gives better mid end then stick with that. unless you race a lot. but for daily driving you dont need top end.

ps: ill be glad to take that ganzflow off your hands. or the short ram. whichever you dont use.

Well the best setup, would be the SRI with the air box at the end. You wont loose torque in the car, which is useful for your daily driving.
So keep the PDM, have both filters in it, the cone and the regular stock.

Good luck,

If you do the "factory air-box mod" (3" nipple, into the airbox) like is on imprezars.com, (same place they sell the intake) you'll keep the low-end torque of the air box, and you won't lose top-end, 'cuz you'll have 3" all the way into the airbox (right now you have a 3"x2.5" reducer to mate the intake to the airbox). It's what I did, and I didn't lose any torque, and it pulls hard all the way to redline, no dropping off. It's very easy, use a 3" holesaw, and a dremel, and some good rtv to glue the new nipple in.
