Did you push the coupler all the way down on the TB, then push the top tray all the way into the coupler? One poster on here said to leave the coupler clamps loose , close the hood all the way, then carefully re-open the hood, and then tighten the clamps.This way you should get a pretty good seal to the hood. If not, you should be pretty close, and raising the top tray slightly more should do it. That's how I intend to do mine when it gets here this Thursday. Hopefully that will work.

After driving threw some snow today, I'm not sure what to make of the vararam. Very light snowing and when I was filling up with gas I decided to check and sure enough snow all over inside there on filter. I'm sure this cant be good for it to get wet. Will have to look at it tomorrow in daylight to see what I'm gonna do

This is not good!
So you're thinking its because you were driving around and it was sucking the snow in?

this is why i haven't ordered a vararam yet. .2sec faster in the 1/4mile isn't worth getting water or mud in my intake. i might end up going with a s&b instead.

That's the only reason I can figure on how the snow got in there. I'm scared to think what a real snow storm might do with this system.

Had one on my 3rd gen and sent it back for poor quality and fitment, I did get a full refund though. If I had a 4th gen it would the new S&B for sure......

I would think with my liner rubbing off it's the best it's gonna get. Just took this, theres 2 low spots towards the back where it can't seal. Btw I swapped out the red tube for a black one. Since I like to one up myself I even got it .5" longer for this reason....sealing issues shouldn't pertain to me

what about driving through some rough rain? Will that soak the filter if say you were caught in a storm while traveling?
