Vararam VR-SC1: Corvette C6 Snake Charmer Ram Air 2005-07


Vararam VR-SC1 - Vararam Corvette C6 Snake Charmer Ram Air 2005-07.

The VR-SC1, After 1 full year of R&D the all new C-6 Snake charmer ram air induction kit is finally ready for the street. The snake charmer is a heavy development of the original C-5 B2 unit. We used information gathered from 12 special B2 Race units that we constructed for racing only, these units featured many different internal aerodynamic packages and filter combinations, to maximize peak CFM and time to peak manifold pressure. We have emphasized too many customers and racing teams that its not just peak pressure but the time to peak manifold pressure that we look at, this occurs at shift recovery, down in the meat of the power curve. This helps for shooting off of corners, general driveability and overall peak performance, this shows up in the form of Torque& Lots of it. Like all VR units the snake charmer was not designed for the dyno (pulling air) it was designed for ramming as such the aero package and shape of the unit are designed around this. The philosophy is simple; design for the most efficient aero package possible at all speeds ranging from 10 mph- 180 mph. The snake charmer is over 108%-123% efficient depending on the filter used.

The filter for this unit was custom designed in house and produced by a subcontractor for Donaldson. It is a pleated unit that is washable and reusable, but that is where all similarities end, the filter features deeper pleats and more pleats per inch than other filters and the peaks and valleys have been opened to further increase flow capacity per square inch. The end result is a very compact high flow filter that will out flow K&Ns of similar dimension by over 30% while actually giving better air filtration, you simply have more filter area that is effective area not dead space. We used the latest in fluid dynamic software to check the flow path of the snake charmer; we say check because the snake charmer was originally designed by hand by company president Patrick Ledford. The flow is so well balanced into the mass airflow meter that at full speed 180 mph+ the airflow is within 1 mph across the entire circumference of the entrance leading into the air meter, the factory tube is not that good!

The unit is formed using two construction processes, the upper is roto molded to ensure a seamless internal aero package leading into the air meter. The second, the lower scoop is vacuum formed, this has been done to allow us to alter the scoop and its aero-packages to suit specific applications, giving us more flexibility and performance in street or racing use. This ensures maximum performance at all times.

So now the how much power will you get question- standing on a dyno without using any special programming you should expect 10-15hp from any cold air kit,but once moving the VR will put all the lost MAP pressure back into the plenum yielding another 17hp by 60mph 19-20by 90-100mph and the way we rate our kits is through a mile Your total power through a mile is about another 22hp plus the dyno hp of 10-15hp,so, on the low side, 32 Rear wheel hp, high side 37 Rear wheel hp. That's 39- 42hp at the fly wheel through a mile.

About Vararam

History and information about Vararam and their products.

If you would like to increase your engines performance by using some of the most efficient air induction systems on earth, LMPerformance is pleased to offer a line of Vararam products.

LMPerformance research has shown that ram air intake works by reducing the intake air velocity by increasing the cross sectional area of the intake ducting. When gas velocity goes down the dynamic pressure is reduced while the static pressure is increased. The increased static pressure in the plenum chamber has a positive effect on engine power, both because of the pressure itself and the increased air density this higher pressure gives.

Your vehicle can become a high-performance vehicle by installing one of our Vararam air induction systems which produce more Power and Torque, offering you more real world performance than any of the other intake system out there. Vararam claims to use the latest in aerodynamic technology and real world testing to produce intake components and parts.

The testing of the VARARAM product is not done in a hurry just to get the job done but rather is a time consuming and demanding process and usually takes up to a full year to be finalized because the evaluation process is only successful when it has evaluated an application’s restrictions and then reduced them successfully to zero, and after that VARARAM force feeds the engine or tunes the system to a particular application. By taking such care during this juncture in the total process VARARAM is able to increase the overall performance of a vehicle to its greatest potential and give you, the customer, a product that you will be happy with. Products like the VARARAM TRI-Power for your GM Truck and SUV, and something that has been lacking in the marketplace for some time, but after careful testing what began as an idea has finally come to fruition – a direct bolt on real ram air system. Forget about the old way of doing things with chopping, drilling and water ingestion and just bolt this baby on for a horsepower gain of anywhere from twenty-five to fifty, and no air meter issues with this product because it has a custom Tri-Power air filter by GREEN that uses air sensor safe oils; and best of all, it is available for your Avalanche, Escalade, Denali, Tahoe, GMC 1500 and 2500 trucks and Chevy 1500 and 2500 trucks. Own something a little smaller say a Corvette C-5, well LMPERFORMANCE and VARARAM thought of you too with the sui generis B2 system that has been evolving since it was first developed and performs as the record setting system it is, and the third time around is definitely a charmer for this performance addition with a retooled upper air box, an increased filter flange area that totally encapsulates the filter, improved box material and other improvements. And improvement is the name of the game when it comes to VARARAM as is evidenced by the Cold Air Super Street System VR for your Camaro that has been redesigned from the original version in order to remove the volume and manual adjustability and then came a tweaking of the cold start operation that was problematic in the Camaro until it was perfect.

5 Stars Vararam SNAKE Charmer Ram air a must ofr any Corvette owner!!, Date: 3/4/2016

By: Shawnm32
Ownership: 1 month - 1 year

My 2005 C6 Corvette was a gem when I purchased it from a local dealer. 35k miles and completely stock. I never keep my cars stock and it is not the same with this Corvette, My Third Corvette(98, 04, now 05). The exhaust woke up the sound and freed up the exhaust flow of my Corvette but it still lacked something, as if 400 hp and 400 lb/ft of torque isn't enough!! The Vararam ram air intake was the item I needed to wake up the beast inside of this car. After a few hours of install time and making sure everything was correct and tight, I drove the car for about 150 miles (50 more than recommended by Vararam)before pushing it to see if I could tell a difference. What a difference the feel of the car is between 50 MPH and 130 mph. The harder you drive the car, the more the Vararam intake makes a difference!! I am completely satisfied that it has added the HP and torque as promised!! I am going to take the car to a local tuner to see what the base number is before the tune and then after the tune but the Vararam Snake charmer is well worth the money!! For less than $300, it changed the feel of the Corvette acceleration and pull at higher speeds. Great investment for a do it your selfer!! The fit and finish of the intake is much improved over early versions of the Vararam as well. I was very impressed with the look, feel, and rigidness of the intake. Could not be happier with a simple and effective modification to my car!!!

Current Mods:
Catback exhaust with x pipe, C7 Z06 wheels, carbon fiber splitter, carbon fiber ZR1 spoiler

Vararam Camaro Cold Air Super Street System VR for V8 2010-11 (Tune Model)
5 Stars camaro ss no tune model, Date: 6/20/2016

By: cody225
Ownership: more than 1 year
monitoring the incoming air temp on the trinity, the air is around 80 when i am in motion. I doubt any of the under-hood cai's can boast such numbers. the Vararam has made a huge difference in the horsepower. This is one of the best mods without using boost. I can really feel the difference, the faster you go the better it works too. I would recommend a data logger tuner with this mod. in my opinion the under-hoods are a waste of money for sure.

Current Mods:
long tube headers, high-flow cats, muffler delete, trinity 1000, low ohm wires and better plugs.

5 Stars Great Buy, Date: 1/31/2016

By: Anonymous
Ownership: 1 week - 1 month
The product was awesome and the instructions were down to the zip tie on point. The only issue is this was NOT made for the big horn addition bc the actual air grabber bumper piece goes where the tow hooks go. I myself removed my fog lights. But anyone who''s making a sleeper may need to come up with other preparations. Other than that 5 fn stars ive noticed more power that when I put on the bully dog programmer.

Current Mods:
Magnaflo exhaust, bully dog tuner

Vararam Camaro Cold Air Super Street System VR for V8 2010-11 (no Tune)
4 Stars smooth running but fitment issues, Date: 6/24/2015

By: SS demon
Ownership: 1 day - 1 week
Looked like an easy install until the rubber color was too long and wouldn't fit. With a little trimming it worked and fit together properly. The only other issue I had is the radiator mounts with the long supplied bolts didn't fit, I am going to have to check the forums to see if anyone else has this issue. Otherwise the runnability overall is very smooth, I did the 100 mile relearn and then opened up to wide throttle. Definitely worth it!!!

Current Mods:
Vararam intake(no tune), bbk long tubes, stainless works muffler deletes, spohn sway bars, r1conceepts cross drilled rotors.
