We know that sometimes you’re on a budget and can’t spend as much as you’d like on your car. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get a quality product that delivers more horsepower and miles per gallon. AEM Short Ram systems are a product of the same rigorous development and testing as AEM’s Cold Air systems. AEM Short Ram systems come with the same high-flow Dryflow air filter and the company performs extensive temperature testing to locate this filter in the coolest area of the engine compartment. In fact, during the development of these systems AEM found that some vehicles actually performed better with the shorter intake length. An additional benefit to the shorter intake length is that it fits entirely in the engine compartment and is simpler to install. Like all AEM air intake systems, the AEM Short Ram Air Intake system is made in the USA and backed by a lifetime warranty.

Every AEM air intake system comes with the innovative, oil-free, high-flow AEM Dryflow air filter. Each Dryflow filter is engineered to exceed the normal flow capacities of the engine it is required for when clean, while providing outstanding filtration and dust holding capacity. And the flow requirements are exceeded by a wide margin, which allows you plenty of leeway for engine breathing modifications, without needing to worry about having enough intake airflow. The AEM Dryflow filter is constructed of a unique non-woven polyester-based filter media supported by aluminum screen wire for rigid structural strength. This filter media doesn’t require oil to filter and trap dirt and contaminants, and actually sheds dirt under engine vibration, unlike cotton-gauze, which holds onto contaminants until you clean the filter. When it’s time to clean, simply tapping the filter a few times will remove most of the dirt from the filter pleats. Then spray the filter with AEM’s environmentally friendly, mild, all-purpose cleaner. Rinse the filter with clean water and allow to dry, or blow dry with compressed air. Best of all, the Dryflow filter requires no oiling, so there’s never a chance of over-oiling. The Dryflow filter is extremely durable and will withstand almost unlimited cleanings.

John Concialdi and Bob Sullivan co founded AEM in 1987 as a tuning performance shop in Compton California. Both men had extensive technical backgrounds in engines and engine airflow, and in a short time AEM became the go-to company for performance modifications. By 1993, when the company relocated to Gardena California, it had become commonplace to see cars wearing the bright yellow AEM logo winning races. AEM tirelessly dyno tested and worked closely with racers and auto manufacturers in an effort to understand intake energy dynamics. This resulted in the sale of their first air intake kit in 1994. AEM can boast a number of firsts and unique products: They’re the first manufacturer to make an intake system with specific tube lengths and diameters to take advantage of pressure waves in the inlet tract; they developed the first dual chamber intake kit; they designed an air bypass valve to prevent hydro-lock should the air filter ingest water; and they created one of the first hybrid intake systems for modified cars. AEM continues to create innovative products to help you get more power from your car.

2001 Acura Integra | Posted by | (Stafford, VA)

Product is well made, looks great, installs rather easily, and works well to provide modest performance improvement and good sound. However, the supplied instructions lack sufficient diagrams and are clearly intended for general application which makes it a bit of a guessing game on your particular model if you don't inherently know what you are doing. Most will figure it out; however, on the 01 Integra there is a wiring harness plug attached to a metal bracket thet precludes installation of the PCV assembly tube. The wiring assembly and bracket can be removed and left hanging loose or can be reattached by turning the assembly, redrilling the metal bracket, and securing with a longer machine screw. It is an easy procedure but impossible to properly mount the intake without removal and relocation of the bracket. hence I would say the instructions are significantly deficient despite a superior product.
