Vararam Industries 05-06 Pontiac GTO (VR-GTO) - $260 Shipped

We set our design target to support 800hp/ 500 cu inch and 7000+RPM, all while keeping the system easy to install and making it a “TRUE” cold air system that breathes better when the hood is “CLOSED” vs. Open on a dyno. (More on this below)
We accomplished this goal through intensive on road and track testing which revealed the shortcomings of every other aftermarket system we tested from US and Australian manufacturers.

They “ALL” suffered from heat soak- the Holden /GTO has a sealed engine compartment. This allows very little air in or out, so these cars run HOT naturally, let alone if the motor is built or supercharged! (Creating more heat, remember, horsepower is heat!)

We tested kits that used many configurations, some went over the radiator some to the fender and others sealed to the hood, ALL of them heat soaked the mass airflow meter and air box assembly.
This in turn caused the ECU to pull timing out of the motor and this also forces the tuner to detune for the street or track VS the dyno with the hood open and a fan blowing.


Vararam Industries Pontiac G8 (VR-G8) - $325 Shipped

The G8 unit was a true exercise in packaging.
We 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. (sold separately) Advanced staircase lower floor- this 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 - An exclusive unit again for VR, made to VR 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 VS competition) 1400CFM @28 inch of water 1 inch SD street filter 1600CFM @28 inches of water, competition units 1850-2000CFM+. During ram effect we exceed 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. Enlarged neck ID capable of accepting stock-100mm+ air meters for heavily modified cars. Military specification materials are used throughout from the custom extruded flat black plastic capable of 275 deg F to the quick release low-pressure latches. High lower arch allowing the use of larger, taller radiators if the need ever arises.
