Best Intake for G8 GT

I have been doing some research for a cold air intake for my G8 GT and I am stuck between these two intakes which one do yal recommend, I have heard nothing bad about either of them.

Right now though I am leaning towards the New Era Intake and the other one is the Roto-Fab Intake.

In the research that I have done the New Era Intake will produce way more horsepower but i am kind of sceptical that those vents on the hood will not get any water in the intake while it is raining.

What do yal think?

Also I know that there is the Magnaflow exhaust system out and in my view it is extremely over priced. I was thinking of make the G8 GT exhaust system into a X-Pipe with costum tubing and changing the mufflers to Twister Performance Exhaust Mufflers and keep the stock tips and everything else to keep it as a sleeper.

Any suggestions or input on that plan? Please let me know

Thanks

Chris

I had this same thought. I would like to wait a see what K&N comes out with or JLT. I am not in a rush to mess around with her yet.

The Vararam system is hard to beat.

Vara-Ram is most excellent. I have the Roto-Fab and love it!

I contacted Flowmaster and they told me that they would not be putting anything into motion (such as R&D) due to the unkown of Pontiac's future.

Guys,
Check out Harrop.com.au for some of the best info on the Australian Performance parts for the Commodore / G8...also..redbackexhaust.com.au they have the best sounding hi performance exhaust system on the market...with the exchange rate against the Aussie $$$ it could be worth importing the parts from Down Under...Just a Thought.

for all those interested in the Vararam intake I did find it on ebay and it is rather cheap for what you would think:

Has anybody had any experience with a "Kooks" exhaust. Saw one on Youtube last night and it sounds awsome!

Also does the aftermarket intake disable your cylinder deactivation?

Has anyone installed the Vararam or the New-Era OTR on their car? Both are radiator front mount intakes but I am looking at what is going to bring in the most air and of course add the most power.

Thanks

I had the Kooks X-pipe system installed on my 1967 GTO with the "lower-volume" exhaust. It sounds great.

Just bought a new G8 GXP, but have not messed with it.

Regards.
