So I did some research on the Vararam, it seems to be a good way to go for an intake. I had never heard of it, until your post. Thanks.

Save your $ and get an AGP Twin Turbo kit. Enjoy the ride.

Reasonable and expected results with the shorty headers, HF cats, RotoFab CAI, and VMAX TB came up to 410hp / 406ft-lbs. Of course my wife wasn't happy and said a Whipple and cam are needed

Not bad. I'll post the graph tomorrow once I can get it loaded.

Be sure to get a tune but keep in mind it will void your factory warranty possible...

+1 .....Great reply +1
This is exactly what I have minus the Cam and it's awesome, really makes the car into a new awesome performing and sounding animal!!

I have plans to do my cam next spring but I'll be staying NA ..so I'll be getting the most aggressive cam I can get with good road mannerisms...

Oh and don't forget get a Vmax ported TB as well..

Yes, Vararam isn't going to get you big numbers on the dyno but it will get the numbers when you get the car moving.. It's not the prettiest set up but it by far outperforms everything else out on the street.

I'm going to give Maryland Speed a plug and say call them because they've done some pretty good combo deals on intakes and headers.. My experience with them has been excellent.

Did you get a baseline and what were the differences?

Thats kinda low considering some 1LE's have been dynoing at around 400WHP stock, are you tuned at all for the mods?

No, no baseline was done as the mods were done back in April and I didn't have time to get it done before hand.

Yes the tune was done today. First pull was 399 then went up from there. Heat soak was seen in one pull, one pull didn't record due to a loose wire.

I thinks it's all subjective and goes back to each car is different, dynos are different and results will vary across the board. I'm not disappointed and wasn't expecting much more than the 410hp with the combination. If I had time to do a base line before hand then the true gains might be a bit easier to see but even then there's such a time difference between before the mods were done and now (April to July). The weather is so different, temp, and humidity. Would I like to have seen more, yeah, could I have gone LTs and gotten a few more horses, yeah but it's good enough for now.
