I've got a vararam on mine and absolutely love it. Compared to volant it actually performs like its supposed to. Intake air temperature lowers significantly, and there is very little restriction compared to volant. Not sure what the actual dyno numbers are but I dyno'd at 362 rwhp and 372 rwfpt on a mustang dyno. But it my opinion it was money well spent.

It's hard to tell, I can't seem to keep my foot off the gas long enough to find out. But I can still maintain 17 mpg going 85, so it's not too bad.

Seems like a great Intake system. I ordered mine a couple days ago. I had been doing some research on them and it seems to be one of the best. I had an AirAid sytem on my 05 ram and loved the throatie sound it had, don't know exactly how much it helped as far as power and whatever?? Im not too concerned with gas mileage or I wouldnt have a full size truck let alone a Ram. As a matter of fact,,, my Hemi burns all the gas that those annoying Hybrids save...lol
Anyway, look forward to having the Vararam installed...

Oiled.. But appearently not the same type of oil as the K&N or AirAid filters. It takes a "Green" filter cleaner and oil. Pretty much the same price for the kit though.
