it's too early to tell...there's not that many choices for the Camaro yet. I'm waiting to see what Vararam will have to offer...as they claim 35hp on their G8 intake. Is that the ad you saw? They do make nice intakes.

Fastlane intake is considered true cold air intake due to the fact that it is placed where the washer fluid container is( behind and under the left head light)

I like the LMR best; it's the one I plan to buy.

I have Fastlanes CAI installed on mine. I like it alot, i dont have the numbers off the top of my head but it is a True CAI and fastlane has the numbers. so far from my understanding it is the only True CAI available to everyone.

Yes im waiting on them as well. The gaines will show up on the track moreso than a dyno. I gained 3/10ths & 3 mph in the quarter after i installed their vararam kit on my vette, just as they promised.
