Scott that is all we can do as the dyno was only Abel to go to 160 Mph and at 145 the operator was scared to go to the end of the pulls in 4rth.

There's no way you get 40 HP with just an intake PERIOD. You can't do a baseline almost 2 months ago on a SuperFlow dyno then do the Vararam intake dyno now with
a Mustang dyno. They aren't even the same type of dyno. A Mustang dyno will always get drastically different numbers than SuperFlow and Dynajet dynos, there's no comparison. Besides that, you've put how many more miles on your car in almost 2 months? These cars build more horsepower as the engine and drivetrain break-in, all the way up to 10,000 miles.
Do the test on the same day, same conditions, same dyno, and then let's talk!!!

The only way you can do the test is 4 hr apart as the ECM on this car needs to learn, You need to drive it some 50+ MI for it to learn.

Put i will tell you what in 1-2 weeks i will pull of the Vararam and put my stock air box on and go back to L.V. and redo the Dyno for us.

Either way, for this and the NE OTR intake your not gonna see its full potential on the dyno. Ideally, you'd want to go to the track around 7pm make 2 runs with the stock intake (hot off the street), switch the intakes out, get permission to leave the track and come back at 8 or 8:30pm (driving around the whole time to allow ECM to adjust), put 1-2 gall of gas back in it (to correct for weight) and re-run with Vararam intake using the same launch technique. To me that would be the most true test of its performance. Who cares how much it makes on a dyno, what really matters is how it "performs" on the street/strip. Between 7pm and 8pm there should be a minimal change in temperature/DA, so to me, this would be the absolute "best" comparison test...Just my $0.02

agreed although i still think this intake will match other systems dyno gains, and seriously one up them on the street or the track as it is a ram air piece best intake so far IMO, can't wait to see some track #'s on one of these. thanks for the info 2ssrs

Sounds like you could simply do a dyno with either the stock box or Vararam box. Swap the air boxes out. Cruise up and down the highway for 2 hours then get the other dyno done. That's not asking for so much is it? Or we just shop around, make a valid choice, and move forward. Sheesh Some of us are already sold on Vararam because of past products and thorough testing. If one thinks they can do better with a different brand, do it.
I personally think the beta testers have gone out of their way far enough already and it's much appreciated! We all know what the manual SS's are dynoing stock all across the country... mid-360's HP. It's common sense to me that if this one dynoed at 380HP, he's gaining 15-20HP with the Vararam. Let's be real here! And that's a huge gain for an intake and it will only be better while driving through real air, especially through the winter time and also even better with after-market exhaust and a tune.
Everyone runs their intakes with or without after-market parts so there is way too many variables here to debate. Temperatures, mileage, parts, etc. Catch my drift. Enough scientific logic here. Buy it and enjoy it or buy another and enjoy it. This will be the best intake in my opinion hands down! Again, just IMHO

Vararam Update!!!!

The VR Camaro system has completed its test cycles and all Beta test units have been shipped.
Two VRX Beta systems have already accumulated over 1,000miles of testing "each" in just 1 weeks time ,with No issues and No custom tuning.

We are now moving the Camaro unit to full production tooling.

We have decided to make the production models from "Rotary tooling". This will allow for a more seamless design ,with many features incorporated in that were not present in the test units allowing for a quick and easy installation (8-10 min!) with no cutting or drilling on the car.

Quality- The quality will be OEM as promised. ,This type of tooling allows for the type of quality you expect from an OEM

The Look and Feel- Here improvements have also been made as this type of tooling allows for more architectural freedom,allowing for a smoother more attractive part

We feel this will give customers one of the finest products they can buy for the new 2010 Camaro
We promised the Camaro owners something very special and we will be delivering just that.

We have been quoted 3-4weeks for the new tooling and we are already underway.

We appreciate the Patience that Customers have shown as we have been testing the new system. It is important for us to always run long term test mileage on new systems, Datalog and run Wideband air/fuel tests as well.This takes time and we know that everyone wants their new "TOY"now. In the end VR has created the most powerful Ram air system we have ever created for a Road car of any kind.

The "NO Tune" models will absolutly shock with there dyno numbers and there real world performance gains- This unit represents a new way of designing our induction systems around GM's E38 computer system.This is where we spent most of our R&D time and it shows!
( We easily reached 3 tenths and 3 MPH 1/4 mile gains and 1/2 second off 0-60mph)
This unit will also cary a gurrantee on it's power gain!

The "Tune Only" models - These are tools for enthusiasts and Tuners alike to use to set records and win races with Period!

The exact specs for each unit ,video footage of some of the R&D and Dyno information will be leaked soon and we are sure that the VRX test units will find there way on to dyno's as well.

The only people that will be looking under my hood are the ones changing oil and helping to maintain it. I could care less what colors those guys are looking at. But that's just me!

Well, got a no go on using this with a Mag charger, wondering if it will work with any charger unit now?

well those two pulls might not be good enough for you but if you do a little research thats is right on par what the G8 and corvette guys are getting

ok bud and if you you will know that back to back pulls wont give you the best results as it takes time for it to learn what to do

that would be some crazy piping for anything else but really cool if it would work even if you had to have it custom made

I really wonder how "much" more effective it can be than any other design on a TVS system...I mean its already FORCED induction...Can't wait to see someone try it.

cmon man... no you didnt. You have yet to dyno your car on the same dyno before and after the intake installation...
