I have the Vararam and like it. I've heard good things about the CAI as well. Its really personal preference, I'm not sure one is going to give more noticeable gains than the other.

2011 Synergy Green Metallic 1SS Camaro:
RS Package, White Ralley Stripes, Premium Sound.
Mods; Flowmaster Exhaust, Vararam CAI, Pfadt Sport Suspension, Budnik "Ice" Wheels, Nitto Invo tires
Upcoming Mods; Custom grill and badging.

I have the CAI. It's been in for over a year and, at that time, there was a spreadsheet floating around this site that did a performance comparison of all the CAIs around at the time. If you are interested, I'm sure it's still around. For me, the CAI was the best looking and performance combo (see pic). golfaholic is right, they are all bout the same as far a gains; it's what you like that matters most. In case anyone was wondering about my TB, I had it TB ported and painted to match the car around the same time I installed the CAI.

CAI

Metal and easy to clean....won't fad and doesn't need special cleaning. Can be powder coated. HP etc. is small numbers...so it's all about looks in my opinion. Hope this helps.

They are all Good. Fastlane shows some awsome gains but requires a tune.
Read this https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...VE&hl=en#gid=0
