The return of the Chevrolet Camaro in 2010 ends the eight-year hiatus by one of America’s classic muscle cars. Now in its fifth generation, the Camaro is packed with a phenomenal list of features. For the SS model, the Camaro is powered by the LS3 6.2-liter V8 engine, which produces 426 horsepower (six-speed manual transmission). The automatic transmission equipped Camaro SS is fitted with the L99 V8 engine producing 400 horsepower. To match the powerful engine of the Camaro, Chevrolet opted to outfit the SS with four-piston Brembo brakes along with the StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control. With a hefty list of performance-oriented features, the 2010 Camaro was clearly designed with the enthusiast in mind.
Once AEM’s engineering department caught wind of the new Camaro, they also focused on offering an air intake system for the performance-oriented Camaro owner. For the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS with the 6.2-liter V8 engine, AEM introduces the 21-8029C Cold Air Intake System in Gunmetal Gray.
In the design of the 21-8029C air intake system, AEM needed to work within the confines of the Camaro’s engine compartment. To do so, AEM engineers designed an inlet tube that would give a large volume of airflow with little added restriction. The end result would be a massive three-inch mandrel-bent inlet tube constructed from high-grade aluminum. The design calls for the inlet tube to route from the V8’s frontward-facing throttle body into the driver’s side wheel well. In addition to the mandrel-bent aluminum tube, AEM utilized the optimal location for a cool air source. In order for the DryFlow performance air filter to occupy this location, the Camaro’s windshield washer fluid reservoir had to replaced with a sleeker piece. To this end, AEM designed a washer fluid reservoir that would better accommodate the location. Each AEM 21-8029C air intake system comes complete with a new washer fluid reservoir and mounting bracket.
On the dyno, the AEM 21-8029C Cold Air Intake System yielded impressive results. In factory form, the test vehicle generated a peak of 318.67 horsepower at the wheels. With the AEM 21-8029C cold air intake system in place, the Camaro’s peak power output jumped up to 325.98 horsepower at the wheels. A maximum gain of 16.53 horsepower at 4,200 RPM was also recorded with the AEM intake installed.
The 21-8029C Cold Air Intake System for the Camaro uses a DryFlow Performance air filter. The DryFlow air filter has a three-inch inlet diameter that outflows the V8 engine’s requirements. The oil-free DryFlow technology is extremely durable and easy to clean. To further augment the filtration properties of the DryFlow performance filter, AEM also offers DryFlow Pre-Filters. Designed to prevent splashes of water and/or mud from saturating the DryFlow air filter, AEM’s Pre-Filters are manufactured from durable micro-screen materials that are pretreated with a proprietary hydrophobic process.
