So basically, without another true ram air kit for the twelves being available, I'm shopping for real gains.
But what's still up for debate for me is how this can't be tuned out from the '12s allowing for ram air. I'm still having a real hard time grasping this from the minimal information available.
OK, didn't know if you were keeping up on this whole thing. I have the same questions as you, but not sure I understand the whole process enough to understand even if someone gave me a full and honest explanation. It does seem odd that Vararam hasn't made a peep basically since we saw their prototype at C5FestIII. Perhaps Maryland Speed k nows something (they were the ones displaying the prototype, i believe).
