I really struggled with which CAI to get. Thankfully, I waited and then the Vararam came out. I installed mine this week and I really like it. It is a "true" CAI as the hood presses up against the Vararam's rubber gasket creating a seal with the hood closed. If you think about the other CAI's, they pull air from that cut-out in the fender that really doesn't have a good clean source of air to begin with. I went with the recommendations posted by other Members here in selecting Vararam. They provide Great Customer/Sales Service too!
