I just recieved my updated version. Too bad Pumpkin is parked til April. I was one of the lucky ones with a weak MAF sensor, Patrick hooked me up with a good one. Can't wait to see results.

I will have the new unit on thursday. I will let you know how it works. From everything I have researched, this new unit is dialed in very well. I love the OTR aspect and now they have it working. I'm very confident I will love this unit.

They were having problems getting the unit dialed in. Why would they send in a intake that they knew may have problems. They have discovered that some of the MAF's are the problem AND they have added a honeycomb screen to the unit and now they having a nicely designed unit. Yes, it took awhile, but they got it right.

I had my dynoed with an LMR intake and a Vararam intake. My car was tuned for both intakes by Jeremy Formato (he's knows what he's doing).

After a few pulls both intakes made the SAME RWHP. But Jeremy didn't give up and kept working his magic. He eventually got a little more RWHP out of the Vararam intake (4 RWHP more than the LMR intake)

But to be fair to LRM, Jeremy spent more time tuning my car for the Vararam intake.

I'm hoping to hit the track real soon. I ran 12.5 @ 111 mph with the LMR intake. It will be interesting to see what kind of improvement (if any) I see with the Vararam intake.

But the conclusion is: The Vararam intake makes very similar HP as the other intakes on the market (at least the LRM intake).

And this is key for me. I love the OTR design, it's different than most who are getting the traditional off to the side intake and it makes good numbers.
