While horsepower may steal the spotlight, it’s torque that will perpetually define the world of muscle cars. The sound of a big cubic inch engine punching out exhaust pulses, the hard-hitting crinkle of a drag slick side wall as it bites into a prep'd starting line. Ah yes, torque is fun, and making it is quite possibly America’s baseball-trumping, greatest past time.
Atop its skyscraper-eque stature, profiled, high-flow runner entries and a large-volume plenum aid in Sky-Ram's massive torque generating capability. Inside the plenum, unique, patented braces help contain the massive structure.
At Holley, we know all about torque. With over one hundred years’ experience designing induction systems from the high-speed and hallowed lanes of Le Mans to your local drag strip, Holley has done it all. However, with our latest manifold masterpiece, we’ve never done it quite like this.
Meet the Sky-Ram, Holley’s tallest, torquey-est, longest-runner-est intake manifold ever. If long runners make torque, the longest runners must make more torque! Designed with lessons learned from Holley’s 10-plus years of development of the LS High-Ram intake manifold line, the Sky-Ram takes runner design to the next level– err, floor– offering skyscraper-size torque numbers on any LS-based engine.
There is no missing the Sky-Ram's sheer, majestic, height. While it may require some subtle massaging of the vehicle's hood, the torque it brings to the table is worth it!
Compatible with all of Holley’s Hi-Ram manifold plenums, including single 4150/4500, dual 4150/4500, and front/side inlet, the Sky-Ram is a great fit for nearly every LS engine, especially with the included hood clearance modification kit.
The secret to the Sky-Ram’s performance lies in the massive, 36-inch intake runners that direct air into the cylinder heads at speeds so supersonic they’d make a fighter pilot’s head spin. With torque gains of nearly 3,000 lb-ft at idle, your tires don’t stand a chance, and neither does the driver in the other lane. That’s top-fuel torque tuned for your budget!
Now, if horsepower to match Sky-Ram’s tremendous torque production is the desired recipe, the quickest way to do it is with none other than Holley’s infamous Moonshot nitrous plate system. With 20 stages of nitrous, the Moonshot Crosshair plate can deliver a whopping horsepower increase of 3,500! Due to the Sky-Ram’s available dual-top plenum, it’s even possible to install TWO, Moonshot plates for a truly out-of-this-world, 40 stages and utterly cosmic 7,000 horsepower gain.
When coupled with Holley's dual-quad plenum top, The Sky-Ram can accommodate Two, Moonshot Crosshair nitrous plates for an additional 40 individual stages and 7,000 out-of-this-world horsepower.
If all of that combo’d craziness doesn’t get your blood pumping, you may not be a gearhead. And if you think it’s actually real, you might want to check your calendar.
Happy April Fools’ day from all of your slightly-out there, fun-loving, fanatical car friends at Holley!
