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

The Vararam system is hard to beat.

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.

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

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?

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.

no one is really shouting out a definite CAI that is the be all must get... so i hear about the vara, roto, and K&N... in a comparison which is the best to get?? and also can you open the vents on the hood or is there a kit for this, and will water get to the intake from this

Testing has proven Vararam makes the most HP and gets better gas mileage as well. Track testing shows at least .1 better then other OTRs and a minimum of 1 mph too.
