Ram Air was a very intimidating competition-busting icon developed by GM in the late 60's to promote sales during the height of the musclecar wars. It functionally provides cooler denser outside air to the engine which also adds horsepower. The moniker was recently revived in GM's 98-02 Trans Am WS6 model by introducing a very sinister looking twin hoodscoop design which in the eyes of the buyer sent these cars to victory without even running a single race. Words speak volumes, and in this case, the two words Ram Air have been instrumental in contributing to the horsepower race of the 60's & 70's as well as re-igniting the horsepower war that we currently see going on today. The Muscelcar Lives! Long live RAM AIR!
