Product Description

Quick Feature List:
  • Produces a real-world 35+ horsepower
  • A direct bolt on, no chopping or cutting of the car is required
  • Unreal throttle response
  • Flows 1400-2000 CFM+ (Depending on the filter used)
  • Reduces 0-60 time by a full half second! Tested at 5.2 seconds stock versus 4.7 seconds with the VR system and no tuning. With a tune, Vararam saw 4.4 sec but had no tire grip to go any faster.
  • Reduces 1/4 mile ET by 3 tenths and adds 3 mph minimum, guaranteed, or Vararam will take the unit back and pay shipping both ways!
  • NO TUNING is required. With tuning, you will go even quicker and gain more power
  • The G8 unit was a true exercise in packaging. Vararam had to package as much flow potential as possible in 5 inches of length! This includes a removable front scoop, for the interchangeability of different scoop designs for street and racing combinations. The advanced staircase lower floor creates negative pressure to turn the air while minimizing turbulence, exceeding the flow of a smooth transition. (If you look closely inside the kit, you can see the mill marks where the unit was milled by hand in order to achieve the precise angles required). Large overlapping flanges are used - this allows the use of thicker, higher flow filters for future power or racing use while maintaining a proper seal for pressurization.

    The filter is an exclusive unit again for Vararam, made to their specs for pleat depth and spacing to maximize flow for every square inch of material. The standard 3/4 inch unit (as was tested and flowed versus our competition) flows 1400 CFM at 28 inches of water and the 1 inch SD street filter flows 1600 CFM at 28 inches of water. The competition filters flow 1850-2000 CFM and up. During the ram effect it exceeds the ratings listed above by 15%. The main air box features a two-step air horn for low and high-speed aero packages for increased throttle response and low RPM windup for quicker stoplight-to-stoplight acceleration. The enlarged neck's inner diameter is capable of accepting stock to 100mm and larger air meters for heavily modified cars. Military specification materials are used throughout from the custom extruded flat black plastic capable of 275 degrees F to the quick release low-pressure latches. They also incorporated a high lower arch allowing the use of larger, taller radiators if the need ever arises down the road.

    4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vararam ram air on an 09 g8 gt, 3.1.2017
    Reviewer: Jeremy Durbin (Chatham , Illinois )
    The product was pretty good, the pcv fitting was plastic and it was supposed to be brass, and the filter was too big for the ram air housing, was able to cut it down pretty easily though. All in all it's a good product but if you want to see the +35 hp gains you will need to have your car tuned for the ram air

    This intake definitely added some power to my G8 GT along with a custom tune! Much better throttle response and overall power. shipped it out really quick and had the best price.

    Reviewer: David B (Apple Valley , CA)
    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.

    I bought this intake a while back under the notion that even if the manufacture's claims were half true, then it would be worth the money. ALL of Vararams claims about this intake proved to be true. I followed the intructions to the letter (including the "break-in" procedure) and had a 0.365 SECOND REDUCTION IN 1/4 MILE TIME. You do have to be willing to lean your radiator back and wrestle the intake into place but it is worth it.
