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.
