As far as power gains go, the short ram pretty much just makes noise. Everyone may say they feel a difference, but dyno tests(such as the one in the information articles) prove that the difference is more than likely a placebo effect. A cold air intake, while not producing the 8-12 horsepower that some people claim on our USDM GT and ST, will still produce a little bit more power. On some cars, like the new Hondas with the aAseries engines, cold air intakes can add substantial amounts of power.
