Product Description

VR-SC1: for 2005-2007 Coupe/Convertible LS2 V8

After a full year of R&D, the all new C-6 Snake charmer ram air induction kit is finally ready for the street. The Snake Charmer is designed after heavy development of the original C5 B2 unit. We used information gathered from 12 special B2 Race units that we constructed for racing only which featured many different internal aerodynamic packages and filter combinations to maximize peak CFM and time to peak manifold pressure. We have emphasized to customers and racing teams that it is not just peak pressure, but the time to peak manifold pressure that we look at, and this occurs at shift recovery, down in the meat of the power curve. This helps for powering off of corners, general driveability and overall peak performance. It shows up in the form of torque -- lots of it. Like all VR units the Snake Charmer was not designed for the dyno (pulling air), it was designed for ramming air during actual street use. The aero package and shape of the unit are designed around this. The philosophy is simple: design for the most efficient aero package possible at all speeds ranging from 10 mph to 180 mph.

VR-SC1R: for 2006-2010 Z06 LS7 V8 and 2008 Coupe/Convertible LS3 V8: VR-SC1R

The new VR-SC1R Snake Charmer for the 2006-2008 C6 Z06 and 2008 Corvette C6 Coupe/Convertible LS3 represents the culmination of input and testing from racing teams, top tuners and a relentless R&D program. This has led to a product that has proven itself to be the most powerful Ram air system on the market for the Z06 Corvette. We've found 1/4 mile improvements of 3.5 tenths and 3.5 MPH with no tuning! Simply plug and play! Noted improvements in both driveability and fuel mileage are also available. The unit is made of high quality cross link material and unique with its billet air meter, green high performance filter, and redesigned air Scoop!

Changes to the Front Air Scoop (now standard for all C6 kits):

  • Floor was raised 1/4 inch - decreased plenum volume for increased velocity into the filter
  • Air inlet venturi raised 1/4 inch volume for large cubic inch capacity engines
  • Increased flange area for improved scoop to airbox fit

The unit is packed in form fitted foam and shipped in a double wall box to insure it arrives in the same excellent condition as it leaves our facility.

The Filter

Our filter was custom designed in-house and manufactured by a subcontractor for Donaldson. It is pleated, washable, and reusable, but that is where similarities to other filters end. This filter features deeper pleats and more pleats per inch than other filters, and the peaks and valleys have been opened to further increase flow capacity per square inch. The result is a very compact, high flow filter that will out flow K&N filters of similar dimension by over 30% while actually giving better air filtration It has more filter area that is effective area and not dead space. The original Snake Charmer was designed by hand but has now been verified by fluid dynamic software. The flow is so well balanced into the MAF that at full speed (180 mph and over), the airflow is within 1 mph across the entire circumference of the entrance leading into the air meter. Even the factory tube can not claim such performance. NOTE:: Rain water will not affect this unit, nor will downpours; you will have to submerse the nose of the car to experience any trouble.

Performance Guarantee

Talk is great, but how much power will you get? Sitting on a dyno without using any special programming you should expect 10-15hp from any cold air kit, but once moving the Snake Charmer will put all the lost MAP pressure back into the plenum yielding another 17hp @ 60mph and 19-20hp @ 90-100mph. In total, you can expect 32-37 rear wheel horsepower. Translated into real road performance:

  • 3.5 - 4 tenths off the standing mile time
  • 3.5 - 4 mph faster trap speeds
  • 7-10 mph higher on top speed

Good for price point
Jason (Calgary, alberta) | May 1st, 2020
For the price, provides better performance vs the stock intake. Just the sound of the engine sounds more "growly" the first time you turn it on. Problem is the series of actions needed to get from receiving the box and having it installed. Delivery was easy and quick, even given how things are right now. Install was based on youtube videos rather than included instructions. Instructions seem to be 1980 photocopier quality with equal quality pictures. Stated cutting of shroud like cutting butter is only true if that butter was frozen solid and the knife cold. Installation was not fun at all. Once you go through that pain, so far after first few drives, the car seems to accelerate quicker amd definitely sounds a but better.

Nice Ram Air kit for the $$
Casey (Martinsburg) | December 10th, 2019
Install was fairly easy, we took the air dam panel off to get a nice clean cut which is a bit of a pain but worth it so you don't puncture the coolers below it. The template seems a bit off and ended up with larger openings at the top but overall very satisfied with the product. Going together it seemed like it might be loose, but once you have it all mounted and attached the intake is very solid. For some reason the PCV line was in the flex tubing instead of the metal tube as pictured and seems cheap but holding up thus far. The screws for the MAF transfer were to short to use the lock washers so we opted for loctite instead of the washers.

Awesome intake
David B (Apple Valley, CA USA) | October 4th, 2013
I can really tell a difference with this intake vs. other K&N intakes I've had before. I still love K&N but this intake gives a little more punch and cooler air. Routing of the airflow sensor was a little different than the instructions but it was easily remedied. I would recommend this to anyone wanting more horsepower and a clean racing look.
