I must say going to first car show with a stock LS felt strange. Although after attending I met alot of nice people and saw alot of nice cars. I cant wait to attend next year with some changes to my car. I hope to attend more as time goes on.

Thoughts on the Vararam intake

Installing was a bit difficult as to cutting the brackets and ensuring fit was correct. After driving the car I feel it easier to get up to speed. I also hear a different sound comming out of my mufflers. Cars idle sound some difference. Cars driving sound a huge difference. When steping on the gas to get up to speed the car sounds nothing like a V6. Mind you I have the stock exhaust no modifications. For me I am happy with this purchase. Performs better and Sounds better. I cant wait for next mod, RX Catch Can and Oil cover filter.

Great job so far!

I can't keep up

As long as I get to help, maybe that will feed the mod bug...

What's next?
