Product Description

Vararam VRX-H1 - Vararam VR Power Wedge for 2009-17 4th Gen 5.7L Hemi Trucks.

Introducing the new VR "Power Wedge" for LS engines (LS2,LS3, and LS7) and Hemi 4G. Increases airflow by as much as 10% on some LS2 applications. From Idle to max RPM, increases power and Torque across the entire curve! In some applications EX, stock LS-2, LS-3, we have seen higher maintained MAP pressures, 10% increase in peak manifold pressure! (Ex: stock at 5800RPM MAP pressure is 14.1-14.20 /2010+Camaro). Torque gains of 10 ft lbs to as much as 18 ft lbs and 14hp on a stock LS-3 down in the meat of the curve 2500-4500RPM. Modified engines will gain even more power Supercharged even more!

Tech specs:

  • 1. By tilting the throttle-body downward to a specific angle of attack (Our secret), this allows the lower pathway to open up to its near 100% full volume. WE spent many hours fine tuning this angle in order to get the proper throttle response and velocity.
  • 2. We also designed a balance plenum inside the bore. This allows the manifold vacuum to pull across the total neck area in a more uniform fashion. This action reduces unwanted pressure drop, and increases air flow volume.
  • 3. We re-aligned the bore to help balance vacuum which increases flow velocity. (The stock bore is egg shaped)
  • 4. In the rear of the Power Wedge we have integrated a variable radius air horn to boost the airs velocity just before it enters the body of the intake manifold plenum. Pushing flow and power even higher.
  • 5. We kept the Power Wedge to a minimal thickness allowing for proper idle pulley clearance on all OEM applications. This will vary from engine to engine - LS-3 vs LS-2.
  • 6. Construction- CNC machined from solid Zytel plastic, the same material most OEM intake manifolds are made from. This ensures that there is little to no added heat soak and that you will have a part that will last the lifetime of the engine.
  • 7. Installation time is about 5-10min and uses your existing OEM bolts.

Because we are not increasing the volume of the intake runner or cylinder head, the flow increase will substantially increase the RAM TUNING inside the intake manifold runners. The increase is occurring at the most important area, the beginning /lower area of the pressure wave. A pressure wave acts like a wave coming to shore, building boost pressure behind the intake valve. If the base energy of the wave is increased, it strengthens the wave exponentially towards your Torque peak. This will show up in the form of TORQUE increases from low to mid-range RPM’s. The Torque increases will carry up the power curve leading to an increase in overall HP all the way to redline. Data Logging has also shown a consistent +.10PSI increase in the manifold pressure at 5200-5800RPM on an LS-3.

A Stock LS-3 in a Corvette or Camaro will normally hit a max of 14.40 PSI@ 5200RPM and pull back to 14.20-14.10@ 5600-5800RPM or so. This is the max power peak RPM range on a stock LS-3. (RPM over run between shifts will always show a false numbers on data logs)

How much Torque can this add and where will I notice the gains? Based on the flow increases we normally see, this would yield approximately +18-20ftlbs at 2500-4000RPM from a stock LS-3. Mid-Range numbers are usually +12-14 ft. lbs. @ 4500-4800RPM on a stock LS-3. Our Dyno testing of Corvettes, Camaro’s etc. verifies these figures. The horsepower generated at higher RPM will depend on the amount of torque gained down low and in the Torque peak.

Custom tuned vehicles: This product offers substantial gains; these gains will result in more airflow, which means more MAF scaling. Some vehicles that have been custom tuned may need to be retuned so the MAF does not over scale. Using the LS-3 spacer MAF scaling will rise substantially at lower/Mid-Range RPM levels, + 175-250HZ, peak HZ is usually +90-120HZ.

(VR Equipped Camaros only, A6 & M6 models) If the vehicle is custom tuned or has a Tuner on it, it will need to be re-tuned to realize the gains from the Power Wedge. If the Vehicle is not retuned the MAF will over scale causing the ECU to delay/pull timing advance and it will go rich.

WHY only the VR? The spacer will move the VR closer to the throttle body, increasing MAF scaling and it will run leaner, by 1%. The flow increase is greater with the VR than for any other intake system because it accelerates airflow even sitting still by design. (The MAF numbers will rise well over 275-300HZ@45-4800RPM and 125-200HZ@ 5800RPM) basically its maxing out the MAF sooner. Simply upgrading to a Tune model tail section will allow the MAF to go up to 700hp.

The Power wedge was born from the VRX Intake manifold program. Our research showed that most of the OEM manifolds had the intake manifold neck pointed upward at about 8 degrees. This is done in order to clear the water pumps and to soften throttle tip in response. In this position , at wide open throttle the blade extends into the manifold neck and plenum up to 1 full inch downward angle position. This blocks a portion of the lower section of the flow path. In short This means that when you are at WIDE open throttle you are only getting about 88-92% of the flow that is possible from whatever throttle body you are running.

The Power wedge can be used on a stock car or a car making insane HP numbers, stroker motors and supercharged applications. They all work with the "VR Power Wedge!" Simply specify your bore diameter at checkout and get ready for an all new driving experience. The Torque Curve will amaze you! It will be from 2,000RPM all the way to red line!

About Vararam

History and information about Vararam and their products.

Checkout the NEW Vararam Corvette C7 True Cold Air Intake!

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 air intakes and other 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 Air Grabber and other VARARAM air intakes 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.

I put this along with the Vararam CAI and Granatelli MAF. My Camaro gained massive HP and Tourque. I went in a limb going with Vararam since I was not fimiliar with them. Now I know...I'm so happy I did enough research to make the decision to order these products. Car runs much cooler on the intake side. Fantastic products.

Current Mods:
Vararam CAI, Vararam 90mm throttle body spacer, Granatelli MAF, and Diablo Trinity T1000 tuner.

Was a little hesitant to buy because I never heard of Vararam before. I did my research and pulled the trigger. Probably the least expensive best results prout I could have purchased. I just put the kit on 5/1/2017. But I have been keeping an eye on the intake temp and I'm running about 15 degrees cooler. I can definitely feel the gain in HP and Torque. I'm super happy with the purchase and would recommend this to everyone!

Fast shipping with this company along with good communications. This cold air kit installed just as the instructions stated. All parts are well made and fit together the way they are suppose too. The direction don't say, but the engine cover goes right back in the stock position. Just turn the PVC fitting toward the back for clearance. It looks good on my 2017 RAM and the sound on acceleration is super. I would purchase this item again. JEL Jacksonville, NC

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.

Vararam Corvette C6 Snake Charmer Ram Air 2005-07
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

By: Anonymous

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.
