Outside that, I like how the theory of the vararam intake works. Im not a fan of their spacer though.
And there are numerous "methods" to help you make those one time wonders.

You guys act like vararam is the only company that markets hp gains like that. Lol, your dissing your own products while at it because they all do it from cam swaps, spiral tbs, headers, other intake companies.

I think that is their point. Marketing departments often live in a different world. Don't listen to them, listen to real world data... Like the kind you find lots of in threads like these.

When you think about it, 80% of the people buying their stuff probably wouldn't understand the catch anyways...

Did you happen to notice what the title of this thread is?

You are correct that many companies do it. There are a few that don't. If you were to go back and read many of my posts in the different threads, you'd notice that I ALWAYS say "ignore the manufacturers claims".

vararam intake

I know everyone has there own opinion, I work in a shop and installed my vararam intake on my 2010 rs. It was not that difficult at all. I can notice a difference in power, sound, and general acceleration through the gears. I have recommended it to all members of my camaro family, it's an expensive intake yes but it's well worth it.
