cia with most gains?

Looking into a cold air intake and I have read plenty of forums but no one has any hard evidence of any gains. I love the looks of the CIA brand and the Vararam . . but no idea if I am getting my moneys worth. A little help?? : )

Both of those systems produce very solid gains. Add a scoop with the CAI Inc system and you get even better gains.

I have the cai intake and I'm happy with it tho I haven't done the scoop and ww relocate so I might be leaving some performance on the table however since the vararam doesn't require the scoop for peak performance I'd lean that way.

Thanks guys . . Im sure they arent too far off from each other. The CIA looks a ton better imo. Does the vararam leave kind of an empty area where the original box goes? Like would it look empty?

Once the Vararam is installed the area where the stock air box was is empty.
