That's correct, you won't gain 30HP from a CAI alone. We've seen approximately 10-15 HP gains from just the CAI, the rest of the gains (15-20HP) are from the tune.

Brandon, have you guys tried the vararam wedge with this intake? Just curious.

Its funny, the LSR intake never made the rounds with the paparazi on here, but that never swayed me.
We have not tried the Vararam wedge with our intake.

Thanks for your business! Glad to hear you like your intake.

Just curious if there was creep in the IATs due to it being a billet MAF housing?

Was this intake ever tested without the sleeve and a tune?

To my knowledge, there hasn't been any independent testing but a few members have run the tune only version with good results. I'm thinking in the 25+whp range.

And exactly what did you find? Another cliff hanger thread? What are you trying to prove? That LSR never got those independent testing of their intake to prove that it can make 20 hp more than other brands?? Well congratulations BJ...I'm proud of you.
