Talking Vararam Ram Air Intake Systems Now Available At APEX Motorsports $383.75 SHIPPED!!!!




No Tune: $383.75 SHIPPED

Tune Only: $383.75 SHIPPED



From mild to wild the VR-SS stays smooth while delivering tire smoking airflow that no other company can match! General features for the new Super Street spec system.
  • The tail/ air box has had over 200cu/inches of volume removed to improve extreme low RPM 1,000-1,600RPM drivability.
  • The filter is a custom panel filter, washable and reusable made by Green USA to VR specs.
  • Rifling The MAF - A custom 1/4 inch thick med density Honeycomb MAF screen has been added to both downsize the system and improve flow quality into the MAF at low throttle input. We did not stop there, we went a step further by employing an elliptical neck versus round to further balance the flow across the MAF, this also helps to equalizes velocities in even the most extreme conditions.
  • A front wing has been added to control the amount of air entering the system. This features several vortex generators to further aid overall airflow efficiency. A heat pad has also been added from the special service package (Police Camaro). This helps deflect the hot radiator heat when the fans are operating. This greatly reduces unwanted heat soak in static conditions.
  • Available in Tune and NO Tune models
Which one do I want?

No Tune models are setup to support 430 Rear wheel HP (500 crank HP) (365-370 Rear wheel HP is a common stock number on a 6sp manual car, 315-320 Rear wheel hp on an automatic car). A common power combination would be long tube headers, high flow catalytic converters and a cat back exhaust and the VR. You may even "tune" the No Tune model for some added power. Before choosing the NO Tune model you must check the factory code on the OEM air meter.

Tune models - These are setup for 430-700 Rear Wheel HP, small and large cubic inch motors. These must be tuned when they are installed. If you do not tune them the fuel trims will be at a high level, 18-20%+, and the MAF will be scaling low in its MZ range. Tune models are made to be tuned on the spot for max power. The Super Street is setup for smaller lower power combinations from stock 400hp to 700hp (call for higher HP applications). To achieve this we increased peak flow but decreased the peak volume to insure good low RPM drivability, even with the wildest camshaft combinations. The VR Camaro unit is "Modular" and can be switched from one combination to the next in just minutes. Making it the last intake that you will ever buy for your Gen5 Camaro, so no matter how mild or wild the combination, VR has you covered.

I realy like this intake (looks & awesome sound) has anyone done a test with this intake to see how it holds up to other CAI(hp&tq gain)? Iv seen some youtube vids they look good just want to make sure im geting the right intake for that much green.

I see that on the install you tilt the top of the radiator back. On some of the vids iv seen looks like there is alot of radiator play and might kink the hose goin to it some, is this a bad install or is there a part that they send to fix this now?

Also Iv seen a post that the diff in the two intakes that they make(tune & no tune) is the filter.If thats true can I buy the no tune now and then down the road when I get more mods and go get a tune, can just the tune filter by itself be ordered?

thx Josh

The Vararam system has not taken part in the intake tests posted here on Camaro5, but several members have posted their results. TAG UR IT gained 28.4RWTQ and 25.4RWHP and John M. also gained 30RWTQ and 20RWHP.

I will PM you regarding the install.

The Vararam intakes are modular, you can buy the no tune version and convert to the tune only version later.

I am not a liberty to discuss the development of the Vararam V6 system, if such a system did in fact exist.

MAF Code

I am unsure what to look for on the MAF to determine if I have a good MAF. Can you please let me know which code is the code I need. Also, if I have a bad MAF code, then what do I do? I am ready to order just need to know if I am good for a no tune vararam. Thanks!

Read this. If you need to upgrade just hit up the parts counter at your local Chevy dealer.
