S&B is on my list of researching Glad to see it fits / works. IT seems the best option as an enclosed system for an offroad truck

Outa curiosity I reached out to Vararam To see if they were going to have a compatable version but never heard back. Been a week so i may give up on them.

How do you like it so far? Did it add much hp or torque or was it more for performance, sounds and looks?
It seemed to have made it a bit more peppy on take off, also noticed better fuel economy. Went on the same 130 mile trip this past weekend traveling around 75-80 mph and went from 14.6 to 16.7 judging by the instant fuel economy.

Took some time to install, instructions say to remove rt fender liner, I loosened it enough to remove the factory mounting bolts for the factory air box. I would do it while it's still clean cuz I have about 3000 miles on mine and my arms were filthy..

Awesome to hear. I might go with and enclosed K&N intake. Haven't made up my mind yet. I for sure want more pep off the line. Better for quick take offs ;)

Vararam got back to me with the most basic of responses...

"Fits the 2015 5.7L"

I spoke to one of Vararam dealers in the U.S and they said they were going to pre-fit it on a Rebel and get back to me. I had it on my sport and it made real power.

Do you live in a climate with snow? That's the only other thing that came up in my research it's terrible for snow

Yes I live in Calgary, if it's really bad snow on the HWY it could be an issue. I got lucky and didn't have any issues. The grill protects a bit from the snow entering the Vararam but you could run stock in winter.

Im looking at the K&N Blackhawk. Anyone tried this yet?
I also was looking at this one. My buddy had a Blackhawk CAI on his 2013 Ram 1500 Sport and said it was great. But he also drives his truck like a low ride car. He wont go through big puddles or off road too much if he doesn't have too.

s&b is the way to go. price wise and function wise. put mine on the first night i got tha rebel
I'm really considering an S&B but I have yet to find where I can get it cheaper than a K&N. Is there much difference in torque and MPG savings? I had a K&N 77 series on my 09 and already miss it terribly.

Go from 40°C to -30°C here in Ontario. Not sure how that would better or worsen the functionality of a CIA. We get a moderate amount of snow here. Not sure what kind of CIA I should look at. Mine is a 2016...I guess mopar makes one if I'm gonna get one
