Vararam has the best design, but so-so quality. Callaway, LG, and Halltech make good units too.

What else are you doing to the car?

I put a Blackwing on mine.

Casper is a 2012 Corvette Grand Sport 3LT heritage package.

How is your slp "blackwing" ? That's the best priced one I could find. Where do y'all find your parts and stuff? I was spoiled with my mustang bc they had ALOT of places that was organized and easy to find stuff.

Texas speed and LS1 Speed tend to have wide selection and are very competitive price wise. SDPC (sponsor) does pretty well too. EPS can put together a nice cam kit.

Interesting to see as many changes as you're making on top of the STS kit. Most people I've seen with it tend to bolt-it on and go. What's your target?

Any thing wrong with the K&N

I just bought the K&N induction system for my 09 C6, is there any problems with that one? Why is the blackwing better?
