I'm curious how you adjusted the Vararam when you installed it. Did you shove it all the way down on the throttlebody and tighten it down, or did you loosly fit it as high as possible, slowly close the hood (allowing the intake to adjust to the best height) open hood, and then tighten the clamp. The latter is what I did and it seems to seal fine. Just my two cents. But I do agree with an earlier post, you might look into a snorkel. I bought the Airflow snorkel for my '04 Cummins Ram 2500 and love it.
