I have been thinking about the vararam or cai but my next upgrade (hopefully)in the next 12 months will be a Whipple install. so can i still use the vararam after that or will i be buying a new one?

You won't be able to use either. Might as well get a rotofab iirc you can use those or a pipe replacement. Not sure. Check their website.

If you know you're going f/i in the future, why not add a cam that's a little more blower friendly?

Thats what I did. Saves you extra money when you decide you need a blower cam and have to get it all replaced. Im hoping to have mine in end of July beginning of August

I asked the same question and was told that cam was built with the whipple in mind. If that info is not correct let me know

An n/a cam that is capable of supporting 500 rwhp will have issues that a mild blower cam capable of 700 rwhp with boost won't have. With 10psi, you can get by with a very civilized cam and still make big power. If you like a little surge, buck, and shake, go for it. A big ole rumpy n/a cam can make big power with boost. Just know that a well designed blower cam can make just as much power and still have perfect manners.
