Not sure what up talking about. I have been consistent that I think CAI are overrated and people often split hairs with this stuff. Not sure what you mean about following.

Oh please.......what a true liberal way of thinking there INDEED.

Any how I bet Vararam (although I am a fan of the intake) will be taking naive folks money when the corvette owners get a power wedge for this TB too hu? Talk about magic dust

How is testing it both ways being naive?

It it gives a increase then it obviously does something if it doesn't its garbage flat and simple
but Lethal whom has a sterling rep believe they work and have no connection to the company other than being a huge supporter of the original intake.

I'm betting he makes about 25 bucks at most on one.. that is not worth lieing to sell to ruin a rep.

No I have a cold air intake, I think everyone should have one, along with long tube headers. Air in and air out. It's a process. But reading this forum I see people driving themselves nuts over what brand to get, I saw one thread where a guy was going to rip out on brand and install another one because he was convinced it was going to have better gains. I also don't think a power wedge is going to do anything. You can talk about the few hp it claims its gonna give you, but good luck feeling it and it's certainly not gonna make a difference on your times at the track. If you look up the past 10 posts I have made about CAI they all say the same thing, I take exception to the "following" comment. I have been and will always be consistent. I didn't mean to offend you.

That's fine, I've been next to the Dyno during testing of this gimmick and it showed nothing during back to back testing. Not gonna mention who cause they are a sponsor and so us vararam. You can pick up 10 hp on a cammed and heads car just by cooling it off lol.

Sorry bud but I just don't buy it that's all. Nothing against you or anything, what bothers me is that vararam threw this at is started selling it and they never came back to defend their product or get into details of how it's supposed to work they just left us bickering. Just saying.

Fair enough.

Agreed on that well most of it.

10 from cooling between runs is a tad high maybe 5 or so.

And I totally agree if it was the manufacturer claiming I'd say pffft ya right but its someone I actually trust telling me different which is making me think 2x

why does it always come down to how much HP something makes? ported TB's show some gains...but the most important improvement is throttle response. why some people get so caught up in chasing numbers they forget there are other variables in the mix is beyond me.

i haven't done before and after testing with mine, but i suppose next time i hop on the dyno i will. and i'll do it in conjunction with a ported TB just for S&G's.

looking forward to your results OP.

That's easy. Show me any tangible graph that can show the increase in throttle response of a wedge vs stock. Opinion and SOP is so subjective it's not even funny. We have guys stating their new exhaust free'd up 20+whp on their cars and will SWEAR to it, just because it feels 20whp faster. Do you believe them too? If you want to make claims on here, we need them to be backed up with some kind of proof. My throttle response feels faster just doesn't cut it.

A shop with a engine dyno in a controlled environment should test this. It would put this debate to rest. Same goes for the ported TB.
