Holley's April Fool's Sky-Ram intake actually exists

Lots of automotive sites, ours included, use April Fool's Day as a free pass to get creative with far-fetched stories that hope to convince the reader that a long-awaited product is finally on the horizon, or, conversely, that their favorite car brand has jumped the shark with a radical change to the lineup.

I need one! Real or not I just want one for the Garage wall. 🙂

SkyRam would be great on a Land Rover or a Jeep, for fording streams!

Definitely surpasses the Chrysler products long ram of the early 60s.

Check out Chrysler Ramchargers "High & Mighty" Plymouth drag car. And see the birth of tall tunnel-ram intakes. They had adjustable height for fine tuning. And that was in the early 1960s.
... Go MOPAR ...

The Ramchargers "High & Mighty" Plymouth was a 1949 business coupe.

I agree the MONSTER Tunnel Ram and Nitrous plate stack would look great on a '49 Plymouth Biz Coupe. And it could then be benchmarked against the old original 'Ramchargers' drag strip terror!

We all know there are people out there that really want this stuff on their cars. Look around at some of the “customs” and “rods” running around. Hell, this isn’t far from those wheels with the extreme “poke” highlighted in a Hagerty story not long ago.

I envision a pickup with a “Carolina squat”, those “poke” wheels, one of these tunnel rams, a “ground effects” body kit, a big wing, those mud flaps with the chrome outline of a woman, and the chrome ball sac hanging from the trailer hitch. Add a polyester fur interior, and a garish multi-color flip flop paint job and you’re done.

That will result in an implosion the likes of which the world may not recover from.

I don't want one of these.  I want FOUR of them - Tommy Ivo style!

Top fuel dragster would to seem to be a good application for this.

This was my favorite April Fools joke this year and the fact they had something physical to see and did a pro video on this was the icing on the cake. Best joke of 2022 and I want it to be real. Install this in a car, just do it Holley!

ECS Tuning had a great one this year. Rear wheel drive delete for the Quattro so you would achieve dependable and safe front wheel drive.

I'd like to see this either on a Smart FourTwo or Subaru 360 in a quarter-mile, or a Reliant Robin on a figure 8.

Probably be so top-heavy it'd blow over in a slight breeze, but I agree, either would be quite a sight to see!  😃
