in all honesty neither is going to be a big change the CAI is "better" since it pulls in cooler air, but its not a big deal. and a larger MAF is only necesary if you over load your stock one which you have no risk of doing without F/I

So the CAI is slightly better? Then why do people have larger MAF's? Some that i have seen them on do not really have excessive horsepower but they still have the larger sensor.

People have larger MAF's bc they have f/i and they need a bigger one than the stock one

so they can say they have it, it is like a bigger TB it has its place, but if you dont do the supporting mods you dont see the gains

No the some of the cars i've seen them on are NA. No turbo, supercharger, nor any nitrous or anything like that?

oh well they wasted their money bc a bigger MAF doesnt really do anything. unless they are planning on going f/i and get it before hand.

the fender well cai getts colder air = better
the short ram air one has a strater path so there i less turbulance = good

and 2 reasons you will see bigger MAF's on N/A cars i sone they have big power with sirious mods. the sock MAF is good to around 250-270 RWHP so if you get to that point of higher you will want a bigger one.
secound reason is because they think it will help but don't know that it wont

So is the colder air or the straighter path more important?

its not a big deal get which one you think looks better I have a SR on my scion cause the CAI's tend to sit low and suck up water, but CAIs on a mustang dont have that problem

The ideal situation is straightest path with the coldest air.
For the mustangs there isn’t to much bending in the fender well so IMO that is the best unless you go to the strip a lot and remove you headlight so you are getting cold air forced in to the ram air set up.
