Out with the old, in with the new

Ended up getting a new intake last week to try something new. Picked this up for a pretty good price and installed it Sunday

So far, other than the install being a PITA, I like it

Took out my old aFe kit and it is now taking up space in my garage.

I have thought over and over again about modifying mine. I think I cound make fiberglass inlets for it but don't know where I would mount them. I want my inlets to be higher since I'm an offroad guy. I though about having the inlets go through the front of the Vararam, but again, not sure where on the grill I would route them to. I also did lots of research with other types of tubing, which ended with me calling Vararam. I didn't like the tubing that came with it, seemed kind of cheap looking to me. But, was informed by Vararam that they tested many types of tubing and found this was not only the most durable, but also the most affective type. I figured smooth sides would make better air flow but the way it was explained to me was that the ribs actually help with air flow. The ribs create pockets of air to which the intake air can glide on. He said the smooth sided tubing seemed to cause friction with the intake air. Not sure how true it is, but makes sense to me. Maybe it has to do with how long the tubing is and how much it bends.

I had an issue with the tubing and how they said to rout it, simply wouldnt work on my truck, had to rout it similar to the way they suggest to do the 2500's. The tubes are suprisingly tough though to be honest with the metal ribbing, not what I expected.

Could look into one of those jet scooops but you would have to down size the tubing size and find a way to rout it on the drivers side

Im just trying to figure out now if the filter they sent was a dry filter or an oiled filter. Didnt come oiled and didnt come with any oiling/cleaning solutions.
