Thumbs up Installed Vararam and Bully Dog Hemi Plus

I recently installed the Vararam Air Grabber and the Bully Dog Hemi Plus with the regular tune and have noticed a pretty good difference in fuel consumption! I am running 35x12.5 Toyo OC MT's and was getting between 16.5-17.5 L/100km and now I am getting 13.5-14 L/100km on the highway. I haven't changed the way that I drive at all either, I keep it at around 110 km/h. I am also running a Mufflex DOD14. Last year at this time, before installing any of this stuff I was getting between 18-20 L/100km... I am pretty impressed with the difference it has made! I would recommend any of these mods!
I do notice that it has more get up and go as well! Not the gains that they say you could get I'm sure, but noticeable for sure! Much better throttle response!

Nice. I've had my Bully Dog installed a little over a week now and LOVE IT. The Vararam is my next upgrade. How's the fit on yours?

What gear ratio are you running with that setup?

the install wasn't as easy as I had hoped it would be, but it wasn't that bad! Had to do some trimming in order for it to fit the way that I thought it should. There were just a couple of spots that I trimmed to clear the A/C condenser and the horn bracket. I put the plastic rad cover back on and trimmed it up to allow proper air flow and look pretty well stock. I will post some pictures when I get a chance!
I am running 3.92's.

The throttle response is noticeable and the fuel mileage has improved, but as for actual HP gains I'm not sure... Maybe slightly!
I think it would look pretty cool white! Might be an idea down the road. I like the classic Hemi orange look though.

Hey Grubrunner, I just read your review on the 85mm ported throttle body from BP and was wondering what the difference was between the 85 and the 87mm other than the obvious! lol Do you think it would perform well with my setup?
