Orrsom OTR CAI

Post by Numbah1 » Sat May 18, 2019 5:29 am

Hey guys, been looking at otr cai. Was wondering if anyone tried the Orrsom? Says it doesnt require the radiator to be rocked back. VCM says it fits G8 + '11-'13 Caprice. Orrsom says G8's. What do you guys think, should it fit?

My VCM has some pretty nice brackets that secure the intake in place to prevent movement. Email orssom directly, I got a response pretty fast. The VE model for a serirs 2 car (if it even makes a diff) should be the one to fit. FWIW I was quoted slightly higher than cost of VCM which made the choice kind of easier for me. If the VCM hadnt had a nice recent price drop I would've gone orssom route. Dont think you can go wrong with either, one is just much more prevalent over here.

I seen the vcm was $20 cheaper, but a couple of guys had problems after leaning the radiator back. The Orrsom says it fits L77's too, i forgot about that part last night

If peace of mind is worth the 20 bucks then i dont think you can go wrong with orssom. Any power difference i bet would be unnoticeable. Good luck with your choice. Update the thread with what you go with!

Just giving this thread a bump. About to make this purchase decision myself and was wondering which way you went. Or, alternatively, does anyone have experience buying/shipping/receiving the Orrsom product.

Also, since I'm posting and kinda new, am I reading that previous comment correct that 2011-2013 cars are series 2 and would need the VE Orrsom product option?

Email the guy directly at OTRCAI.com, I think his name is Charlie? He got back to me right away.

That one looks like it would be the one you would need.

2011-2013 would need a VE product (my VCM came with attachment items for series 1 or series 2 anyhow). 2014+ would need VF I imagine.

Thats where i seen the 1 i was interested in. No i havent gotten it yet but i definitely will. 2 things holding me up; 1. my hood isnt lined up proper 2. I didnt want to add it as there's a big race this weekend at my local track & i wanted to stay the same as i tested.
