Possible LFX Vararam Group-Buy

Just say it happened, who would be in for the grand-unveiling of the LFX VR? I'm 100% commited to getting this thing when it comes out, but was wondering who else was thinking about upgrading from stock or even changing an existing cold air system.

I know its probably early, but I'm sure more people would jump onboard if the price was a little sweeter in a group. I'm guessing it will be priced relatively close to the 2010-11. ($349 on VR's site)

I'll just start a little list and see where it goes.

With all the effort that goes into making it right, I think we should be OK. I'm wondering how it will look due to the centered radiator cap now. Hopefully very similiar.






List is current.

That's my question too.. I wonder if they will do a dual system that pulls from both sides or do a relocation kit like other cai systems and the washer fluid.

IMO a dual exposed system would look amazing...I think... Even if the cap was exposed, but they gave you a matching one to replace it that went with the design, but it would be a PITA to clean, especially for my DD.

We will see soon hopefully.

You won't see this because of what happened with the first V6 Vararam introduction. Both us, and Vararam ran a preorder group buy. Then the ship date got delayed 2-3 months, and people started going on about how terrible we were and chasing us with pitch forks. They may run an intro special, but it will not be untill physical units are ready to ship.

... I can wait. I'm sure to save some money others could too. This is a theoretical group-buy thread to begin with. On the other hand if something does work out, you now have quite a list of able buyers. I can only imagine the second round to be a smoother process due to the experience of the first fiasco.

In saying that, list is updated and if you're interested keep on posting!

I reached out to vararam months ago when I first got my LFX. They never got back to me or gave me an estimate on R&D or a timeline. I went with the Injen CAI.

@SoCalThug, the airaid only sounded like it pulled in air for about 2 seconds and then it had a deep sound which i thought was loud. Well the vararam pretty much proved that to be way wrong! The vararam has a much deeper sound as well as it being a lot louder. I'm saying this in all honesty and not trying to gloat but people actually asked if I had a v8 after hearing the vararam. My friends who knew I had switched were amazed by the difference as well.
