Each are one of the most recognized brands. Slp headers are notorious for hanging low and vararam intakes are rumored to such in water but other than that I've heard nothing else negative.

Alright sounds good wasn't sure about the headers because haven't seen much discussion on here about the SLP headers. I like that it comes with the cats.

No water issues with my vararam. Let us know what you think of the SLP headers once installed

I am not a fan at all of the SLP headers, but the Vararam intake is a solid piece.

Bo I think you might be thinking of the Volant intake...?
I don't see how the Volant could suck in water. The volant is very similar to the rotofab but it has a cover on it. The varam is the one that sucks in from the front, so I could see how water could get in there.

I haven't heard about water issues with the Vararam, but New Era on the other hand had issues with their early version which I believe was corrected later on by putting a lid over the top. I think that's the one he is thinking of.

I have both Vararam and SLP LTs. No complaints. As far as the SLPs hanging low... Not from what I can see. I haven't scraped them (I am at factory height and will be lowering once my shocks and bushings get in).

I'm stock height and don't plan on lowering so if the headers hang low it shouldn't be a problem and was wondering if there is any other problems with it?

Headers should be in tomorrow, intake wont be in for a week I wanted to install the headers this weekend but wasn't sure how long I could go without a tune while I wait for the intake.

Anybody know how long it will be safe to drive without a tune?

I went for about 2-3 weeks without a tune. I even went WOT numerous times. You'll throw a CEL but it's nothing devastating. You'll still need the tune make the proper gains and run efficiently.

SLPs really don't sit any lower that stock. Kooks and ARH are the ones I heard sit low.

All I've heard in passing regarding SLP headers is on some cars the tolerance is tight with respect to the spark plug wires, some have had meltage issues... fix is relatively easy/painless, you can get heat resistant boots for the wire plugs and that usually helps.

Not trying to bash them, but that's what I've seen / heard discussed with SLP's.
