Anybody who's thinking about buying a CAI and has questions about their performance versus some of the others should check this out. This spread sheet that JRE put together should answer a lot of questions. They did a head to head comparison of the listed CAI's on the same car under the same conditions. Probably the most fair third party testing done on these for our cars. Check it out:

It is this sheet that convinced me WHY I bought an INJEN.

I would love to see this test redone with some of the other manufacturers like Roto-Fab, Vararam, and even the Injen Short Ram. Although, I think it will be hard to equal the Injen Long Tube.

Has anyone dynoed the Vararam? I would like to see them numbers compared to CAI and Injen.

Also, isn't the Injen and CAI almost identical? I got the CAI because of the super easy install.

If I am reading it right, it looks like the CAI added 15 HP and 10.8 TQ while the Injen added 14.4 HP and 12.2 TQ.

Will a difference of 1 or 2 HP even be noticed?

The Vararam was dynoed. However, I do not believe those results have been posted on this forum. Keep in mind too that all dynos, are different. Along with doing the test on different cars, on different days. There was a great article done by Hot Rod Magazine discussing dyno results. I for one do not get hung up on the numbers to much.

As for the difference in the CAI and INJEN, I doubt you would notice the difference in your every day to day driving.

The vararam has been dynoed, however remember it is set up for receiving moving air while driving, like a ram air type of thing. So sitting on a dyno, with no airflow won't give you optimal results. The track is where you gotta test it and see the gains.
