Default Feel of the Vararam Air Grabber

Anyone not notice a difference after installing the air grabber? I dont seem to be noticing any poer difference and my engine even seems to be running a few degrees hotter?

I did have meineke install a muffler that t hey screwed me on and im having a magnaflow y pipe and mag 18" muffler and all the 2.5" pipe changed back to the stock 3" after meineke hacked it out. Im hoping this will open everything up and the vararam will come alive.

It gets such great reviews, im just not seeing anything right now? Do those fins behind the 2013 grill block the air?

You'll typically feel it more in WOT and in the higher RPMs

Im still deciding on a CIA. Im between the vararam and s&b. But my opinion on your experience with it is that it should have still showed inprovement regardless of the exhaust change. Fast is right the most gains or feel will be at 3/4 to WOT. Have you tried that? Get back and thanks for review

That's when the most sucking/air grabbing happens.
Both are great CAI's but vararam has proven track slips and dyno numbers of HP increase

as stated above most all CAI's including the air grabber you will notice the most improvement at WOT, I don't think the muffler should affect it much, and as fast said the air grabber has proven track time and dynos, have you tried WOT yet?

Thanks
