cold air intake C5 Z06

Hello everyone; This is my first posting, so I'd like to say "hello" to everyone. I am seeking first hand experience from ZO6 owners before I purchase any of the air intake items that are currently available. I want the most performance for my buck and also need a unit that is not overly difficult to install. Any input from those of you who have experience with these units will be appreciated. Thank you and happy motoring!

I have an 03 Z06 with the Halltech Killer Bee with Jims tune. Noticeable improvement (alot).
No complaints at all.

Hello; Thanks for your input. I'm not familiar with that name. You location would be appreciated so that I could possibly find a vendor for this piece. I am in Ohio, so perhaps it's a matter of geographic difference as to why I've not seen this maker's unit on the market. Also, is Jim's tune a computer software type program for modifiying the electrical settings on the car? Any additional information would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Vararam offers a CAI application for a C5 - not sure if it matches up with the Z06 or not. I have been very impressed with their C6 CAI though. Significant difference in performance. Steve is the gentleman's name at Vararam...give him a call - he's a ton of info.

Despite what many will say, the Vararam does not improve flow and actually can impede air flow when not moving. There's an article out on the web I read a couple years ago where they tested it on a dyno. I believe the conclusion was that unless you are doing 60mph or faster there is no benefit with that brand. I installed a SLP Blackwing and a front hood seal and was very happy with the increased air flow.
