ADM Race intake with scoop or the CAI unit are the 2 best for the V8 Camaro's. The ADM Race will net you slightly better performance in hot weather at speed as the scoop force feeds Ambient temp air quickly to the airbox to prevent any heat soak. ADM helped CAI with there airbox and if you look closely the airbox design is very similiar. ADM's street intake without the scoop is equal to the CAI.
The Vararam looks good but if you notice it goes over the top of the radiator allowing heat soak, this is very evident when the car is sitting still, as the heat rises it heat soaks the housing which yields you hotter IAT's which cost you power. It wasnt as evident during dyno testing since the hood was open letting heat escape.
Last year during the summer here in AZ I did a lot of hot weather testing a several cold air intake systems on several Camaros. The ADM race with scoop had the lowest IAT's of all the systems.
