Have you been living under a rock? There are NUMEROUS posts about VR on here.

I hope you don't plan on getting it anytime soon. If you JUST ordered it, don't plan on having it till mid summer, at the earliest. There's a first order list and a second order list. They are about half way done with the first list. If you want to know why, I'd suggest you do a little research.

I'll let everyone know what numbers it actually puts out once it arrives and I get a tune. My Kooks should also this week, so hopefully I can get everything installed within 2 weeks.

Let us know how your drivablity is with it. I've read the MAS may be to close to the motor causing unsatifactory things to happen.

Will do. I've heard a few things about them, but for the most part, I've only heard good things. It's just one of those things you have to try out for yourself I guess.

Wow that was fast I'm looking forward to the results. Drivability as well as dyno. I just ordered the C.A.I. System and it will be here thursday. I hope I made the right choice for my daily driver. I will say the vararam seems like a celebrity among intakes. So again I'd like honest real world driving. Not just the dyno. I hope it lives up to the hype as I may upgrade to it one day.

If it can get me 30 hp, I'll be happy -- even though they claim more.

30hp is a large order IMO for just an intake. We shall see. Are you planning on a before and after dyno with just the intake. Or are u gonna do before stock and after with headers, intake, and tune?

Happiness my not be in your future, expect 10-15 like every other intake system.

Long tube Headers, High flow Cats, CAI, and custom tune give 40 consistantly.

25 from the headers 10 from the cai and 5 from the tune.

I forget...did you folks test the Vararam? They're promising at least 20hp no tune over factory stock (and 3tenths in the quarter)...and I can't remember if they were included in your testing.

Negative. Vararam hasn't hooked him up with an opportunity as of yet. Or at least I hadn't heard and the results are still the same.

They have a performance guarantee. If it turns out to be crap, I'll be sending it back. I can make my own and make 10 hp.

A member recently tested their unit at the track and compared the stock intake to the Vararam. Results were:

2.5 tenths and 2 MPH increase

~20WHP gain however his car was not stock and he was using a tune with each intake. I am with Ted. On a stock car with no mods/tune, I would say 15-18HP increase. No better than any of the other good CAI's on the market.

I would love to see someone do a before and after dyno on an otherwise stock car with the Vararam.

On the flip side, the Halltech unit has shown significant improvements in HP increases when mods are added compared with other CAI's. One of the Nickey cars saw a 30HP increase just by swapping the Airaid CAI with the Halltech alone. Seems the most responsive.
