Camaro cold air intake featuring brushed aluminum heat shield
The R2C Performance 2010-2015 Camaro SS Cold Air Intake System:
Decades of experience designing many of the most sophisticated miliitary intake systems, along with extensive lab design and dyno testing has produced the most effective intake tube shape for the Camaro LS3 and L99 platforms. The patent-pending R2C Camaro SS Cold Air Intake System offers the largest cross sectional area, lowest restriction and best distribution profile throughout the tube, resulting in average performance gains that exceed the competition in every category! In fact, the R2C SS Camaro intake tube offers 27% more cross sectional area when compared to competitors 4" round intakes. R2C cold air intakes support additional modifications such as performance exhaust and tuning with outstanding effectiveness. While no tuning is required, this additional internal volume and CFD shaped profile respond to custom programming incredibly well.
The LDPE intake tube construction offers controlled intake temperatures and the open heat shield design seals against the hood and provides several sources of outside air. Extensive testing has clearly shown that the factory fresh air intake opening has significant limitations due to the flow path and cross section. Sealed air box testing has indicated dramatic restriction increases in every case and recent independent test results have shown NO Reduction in IAT. Significant additional restriction resulting from this closed box design and no improvement in intake temperatures will reduce the effectiveness of any intake design. When properly sealed, the factory hood works just fine as a cover and opens the box to significant additional sources of lower temperature intake air.
Try Before You Buy at the Camaro Event
During the Camaro event in Atlanta, R2C engineers provided Camaro SS owners with an opportunity to track test our systems against the factory intake as well as any aftermarket intake of their choice.
In back to back testing, R2C intakes consistently reduced elapsed times by an average of 3 tenths and gained 2-3 MPH.
Other intake manufacturers were in attendance but declined to participate in dyno or track test sessions after witnessing the back to back performance comparisons. This includes those involved in the initial Camaro intake system manufacturers dyno testing.
We thought it would be fun and informative for Camaro owners and intake manufacturers alike. You have to ask: why choose not to participate?
Fact: No competing Camaro SS cold air intake offers across the board benefits that approach R2C.
If you're serious about choosing a premium system that offers unmatched SS performance and don't buy simply for the approbation of others, there is only one choice - R2C.

For maximum performance, Don't enclose an air filter!
No aquarium airbox look and no restriction increase caused by enclosing the filter with a second cover as used in some Camaro systems.
They don't work.
We've tested it repeatedly. If enclosing the filter offered any benefit, we would have built the best closed airbox in the business! IAT's don't change as evidenced by independent testing and restriction climbs rapidly.
By definition, the factory equips the Camaro SS with a ducted, "cold air" air filter housing. This enclosed filter housing also suffers from incredibly high pressure drop, making your engine work harder than necessary to intake engine air. R2C Camaro SS cold air intake systems reduce this effort from a restrictive 15.7" w.g. to a free-breathing 5.8" on the manometer, allowing your engine to breathe much easier and make maximum power.
*The factory intake system has over 250% more restriction when compared to an R2C engine breathing system on your 6.2.
R2C engine breathing systems also make daily commuting easier on your 6.2. Engine work less hard and this can pay dividends at the pump too!

Many current Camaro Cold Air Intakes reduce Air Filter efficiency and engine protection by dramatic amounts!
Keep in mind that the factory air filter efficiency is quite good. Camaro engineers understand how important quality air filtration is with regard to the prevention of unecessary wear and increased longevity. Dirt ingestion caused by poor performing air filters, and the additional impact it has contaminating engine oil, are the biggest contributors of premature engine wear.
How many Camaro owners even consider the implications of increased dirt ingestion and premature engine wear when looking for a cold air intake? How many cold air intake manufacturers stress the importance of filtration when marketing intake systems? Horsepower claims and underhood appearance are nice attributes, but they should never compromise engine protection!
Air filter efficiency of gauze and poorly designed synthetics can produce many multiples of dirt ingestion when compared to the stock air filter. The R2C Cold Air Intake System for the Camaro is the Only high performance intake system that actually improves upon the performance of the factory filter system! R2C air filter efficiency exceeds 99.3% using ISO Fine test dust down to .3 Microns. It's not unusual for gauze air filters to allow over 20 Times the amount dirt through the filter. Competitive synthetics are not much better.
Let's consider another factor. These low restriction air filters may work well when new or clean. The restriction curve rises dramatically once they begin to collect dust. Test a gauze (cheesecloth) or poor synthetic air filter after a few months of normal street wear and you'll find that the restriction levels are not very good. Dust Holding Capacity is the key. R2C lifetime synthetic air filters are unlike any high performance filters offered today. The only similarity to others is the term Dry.
R2C premium performance air filters feature the most cost-effective and easy to maintain filter media available today. While fully washable, R2C air filter maintenance is a snap using 40-60 PSI compressed air directed from the inside outwards and they’re ready to go. Never spend a dime on recharging kits again. R2C lifetime synthetic air filters are the best performing, longest lasting filters you can buy.
*Now available with R2C's new "Black Hex Series" street/race filters. The highest level of filter perfomance available today.
Black Hex Series - 2000+ CFM at extremely low pressure drop.
