I always use short ram intakes. I have used a couple of APS cold airs and they work okay but then again I have custom tuned them. I have absolutely no problems with short ram intakes like the Blitz, Turbo XS and Apexi.
How does the filtering of the Blitz SUS compare with the filtering of the TurboXS and Perrin short rams? I wouldn't think that the mesh filter of the Blitz can filter as well as the others. I'm sure this has been hashed this out a thousand times, but I'd just like to see some more info. Is there any info on the long term affects of using the Blitz?
