Review #1 by 66ImpalaLT1
Review:
Compared to most other C5 induction systems, the Vararam is probably the most difficult to install. Its construction leaves much to be desired, with my main complaint being "craft-store" air filter. I have been fighting the filter since the day I installed it, keeping dirt out has been difficult living in the dry southwest.

A new filter promises to to solve my complaint, I'll report back when I have a chance to try it.

I have noticed consistantly lower IAT temperatures with this system, which is the reason I sold my Blackwing.

My only measure of performance gain is checking the manifold pressure compared to barometric pressure. The Vararam provided a wider rpm band without the tell-tale manifold vacuum of an inadequate induction system.
