This is for all who think this is big, It's only 6lb no that is lees than the factory one, Hay my K&N air filter is 4lb by its self and the factory box is 10lb so you save some.

LOL thanks! Any weight you can remove from the front helps the weight balance. Looking forward to seeing the final production results.

Good pics'. If you could take more with good lighting, like the last one, that'd be super. Regardless, thanks for sharing.

I think that thing looks massive; and I'm glad of that because it seems like there's a lot of room for air and filter. Is it possible to take any pics' of it out of the car? I'm sure you're not allowed much by Vararam, but whatever they're okay with you sharing, would sure be appreciated, by many here, I'm sure.

Thanks a bunch though

I have a couple,

The MAF, it appears to be on the drivers side a few inches in front of the Throttle body is that correct?

Also can you datalog the IAT`s? I would be very interested to see what they are at idle and when moving as compared to the stock box.

Thanks man!

Good deal... the one I saw had a loose radiator at the top so must have still been missing something on the install.

This baby really brings the air in. Wide opening in the front grill for air intake.

Statonary numbers on a Dyno are not going to do this one justice...

This intake will probably make about the same numbers on a dyno as most other intake maybe a little higher cause of cooler air not sucking engine heat but you get the power the faster you go this is not a cold air intake this is a ram air intake .
