New Vararam power wedge installed

Well while I was on the Vararam web site last week and I noticed they have a new throttle body Power Wedge product. Well since im still waiting for their ram air to come out for the 2012 LS3 Camaros I gave them a call about it. So I ended up ordering one. Ill take all the extra bolton stuff I can get as long as its not snake oil. Well I have to say this little item actually made made a difference in throttle responce and a definit slight power increase. It isn't my wishfull feeling, It really does work. Just thought I pass this on in case any one was wondering about it.

Let me get this straight...they want $139 for what amounts to a "gasket"??? WTF? They even call it a spacer for heavens sake. Why does it cost so much as you know to actually manufacture something like this only costs about a dollar or 2. Amazing...

Tell them you are on the Camaro forum and one of the members just bought one. Im sure they will give you a discount. They dicounted mine just because I had a VR on my 1LT and im waiting for their VR for my 2SS now.

I'm gonna call them and see. I have a custom tune. And my tune is getting updated because I have a 3 inch catback and the Vararam installed since then. I don't want to throw anything off and blow up my engine, lol!!

I called the tech line and asked one of the techs if I needed to get my tune revised. He said that with a custom tune there is usually room in there to allow small modifications. I'm guessing as long as it isn't a highly modified car with a cam or blower or something. So I think my car will be fine. I am probably going to purchase one tomorrow.
