If you get the Cold Air, make sure to get the Bypass valve so if the filter gets soaked from the rain or a puddle, your engine will last. Check out this article by Sport Compact Car magazine:

I've believe the V2 has the best dyno proven power but it won't come with the water bypass valve if you intend on driving it in the rain. Go with V2 if you want power and best AEM intake. Regular for better performance, econ, and all weather (make sure to get the bypass valve). Water in motor = bad $$$

The V2 is the better of the two because is uses resonance tuning too generate more power using a short ram air style intake. The cold air intake is good too, but i does require a bypass valve, sold by aem for like $50, to avoid sucking water into the engine.If your going for the most power, the Weapon-R Dragon intake has been proven by TunerPerformanceReports TPS.com, to make the most power for the civic, but the AEMs are definitley rock solid intakes as well
