Hi @PRL-Motorsports,

Im looking for an air intake, im having doubts about the 2 intakes that you provide, the short Ram, and the cobra cold air intake,

1-What is the difference between the street and the race MAF (I will use this with ktuner so i think it will be the race MAF)?.

2-Is there any noticeable difference in HP profit between this two? My first choice is the short ram intake, because i like the style when you open the hood, but i dont know if the cobra will have better tuning for performance.

Thanks for your support to the Spanish community


The cold air will be the best option, as opposed to the short ram. We do not recommend a short ram and only provided one to market by high customer demand. You will probably lose 4-5 horsepower with the shortram in comparison to the cold air. Short ram in this case sources hot engine bay air while the cold air sources the best possible air from behind the fog light. The street MAF version is able to be installed on a factory car and still operate correctly. Race MAF version is a larger diameter and requires a tune or proper calibration (Available through KTuner and Hondata as a basemap option). You will see 3-5hp gain with the race MAF over the street MAF.


Thanks for your answer.
Seems pretty clear that we should go for the cold air intake, but one last question.
I’m worried about hydrolock the engine with a cold air intake, is there any problem using this in the civic 10th? Is there any anti water filter to put in the cold air “Cobra”?

There should be no problem unless you drive over a very deep puddle IMO.

This seems to be a common misconception stemming from the open engine bays of the late 1990’s Hondas. Our cold air places the filter (depending on if or how much your car is lowered) about 20-25cm from the ground. It is also guarded by 2 plastic pieces from factory. You would have to submerge your entire filter in water deeper than you should ever drive through for this to be an issue.

If you think about the path any significant amount of water would travel it would first make it past the two shields, through an oiled filter, uphill through 3 bends in a 10cm diameter section, through your MAF housing, through a hot turbo, down the hot side intercooler pipe, through your intercooler, and uphill through 3 more uphill bends in your cold side intercooler pipe to reach your throttle body. A little different path than going straight from a filter into your throttle body.

We’ve had several employees drive our cold air on road trips and through all seasons in our wet Pennsylvania climate. Even driving our big turbo kit through town with flooding streets pouring water into the drainage system. 0 issues arose during any of our experiences and only 2 people have ever hydrolocked to our knowledge. This was due to BOTH of them driving through upwards of 38+cm of standing water, which you shouldn’t attempt in any car. At that point it would be user error. Use common sense and your best judgement, but for 99% of normal driving you will be fine.


Thank you very much, you have cleared all my doubts
