There are cheap carbon fiber kits for the whole interior of the Camaro, but they don't have the door inserts. You would basically use rubbing alcohol then stick these on. They come with 3M tape backing and in your choice of colors. They have a kit for automatic and a kit for manual. They also have two more kits with extended pieces including the overhead console area. All three kits to fill your interior would cost just under $300 plus shipping. This price is based only on their real carbon fiber kits which after you select, the low price goes up 30% and they come in various carbon fiber colors. Keep in mind, what they are calling REAL carbon fiber cannot be real, but rather a REAL carbon fiber "pattern" which they should state. I had a red carbon fiber kit on an old Nissan SE-R Spec V. It seemed a little cheesy at first because it is glossy/shiny with a rubber/plastic coated look, but it grew on me and I ended up liking it. So I'm probably going to order this. I just wanted to make sure the tape is sticky fresh for when my car arrives in a couple of months. I also can't decide between the real carbon fiber color and the real silver wire carbon fiber color for my SIM.
Also, with these cheap kits, you can put whatever pieces on you want and remove any if you want later. I'm choosing to make my interior just look different than stock without spending an arm and a leg. I'm already spending so much on other mods. I probably should have opened up a thread and tried to make commission, but here's the link...

http://www.carid.com/2010-chevy-cama...ain-dash-kits/

Update: I just called and ordered the 3 kits for the carbon fiber color. I was told that it takes 4 days to make and that it looks very nice. She gave me a discount so the three kits only cost me $255.77 with shipping. 1-800-505-3274. She said they have already had many Camaro orders so I'm apparently not alone going this route.

Also, there is a thread on hydro carbon pieces which are inexpensive, but I haven't heard a whole lot of progress lately, their pieces are limited to a few, and you have to perform some work to install them.

To keep this thread on track, I'm still waiting for some awesome dyno results, but aren't some of these cars being used for the beta Vararam modded with other parts? I'd like to see what the Vararam does on it's own on an unmodified car.

I would be surprised if the dyno shows the full capability of a ram air system, unless you have fans that actually create the same amount of air pressure and volume as it would on the highway/track.

It will show increases, but not nearly what it "should" do as a ram air system works properly.

Still am waiting for the PM to place the order

To tell you i don't think i will get more than 15-20 hp at the top of the RPM, But i think i will get more TQ on the Vararam and TQ is what moves a 4000 lb car.

As for a pm i think all testing will be done end of next week or so, But we will hear from them Soon.

So i got back from L.V. and some dyno pulls on my car that is as it came from GM on the power Tran no mods, So my first pull for this car at K & N is this Pic.



And today i did 379.8 HP and 362.3 Tq so that is why i am up set you dont have your's at this time, I have to load some software on my computer to scan in the graph, Thake you to all the LVFBC for all the fun and thanks to "SSRS2010" for Hanging with me and doing his car to And a Big Thank you to "VegasSilverbird" For puting this on.

One more thing AFR was 12.2 so stile a fat but not bad maby if we can get it up to 13 we can find some more HP.

I don't see what the gains were...did you do an actual before and after dyno. The before that you posted was from 2 months earlier and a different speed shop or did I overlook something so I am not sure how valid that comparison is

So what you're saying is with a fan (or real driving conditions), we can expect over 40 rwhp?

Exactly which is why I was wondering why it was referenced...because it is almost misleading the way it was posted, it might lead some to believe there was a 40 rwhp gain which is obviously not going to happen from an intake alone.

If both dyno's were set up identically, I'd have to say nothing but, "HOLY SNIKEYS!"

However, we have two different pulls on two different dyno's. How the dyno's are set up and the dyno alone will jack with numbers. You can get a basic idea, but you can't really say that part "x" gives you "y hp" gain.

If we could get a second dyno run on the same dyno, then we'd be in business. for now, I agree that the Vararam is going to kick ass. Never had doubts anyway...just anxious to get one to see for myself.

So you now the seconded dyno is a Mustang dynamometer and the first is the Superflow at K&N, The reason you can not do back to back is on t E38 ECM need time to learn You need to drive some 35-50 Mi between changing intakes and 1/2 that is done in city driving. One Day if some one will let me have a dyno for all day i will try that.

You're going to have to expect people to be critical of that kind of claim from just an intake, but if it's true, I'm glad I'm in the front of that pre-order line

Can't wait for Vararam's official unveiling...

You are right the fact is this car came to life after the intake The TQ goes up from the time we punch it, It went up to 345 lb and up to 360+ all the way till we shot it down at 5850 rpms as the dyno can not take a lot more mph.
At 5844 RPM this car did 144.0 MPH .
