I've heard things about Ram Air, but can someone explain to me exactly what it is, and show me a picture of it? And what does it do, besides air intake.

The idea behind ram air is that you have an intake that takes advantage of the pressurized air in front of the car at high speeds. I think the term was first used in a production car by pontiac back in the 60's. A ram air system is basically just an intake that is strategically situated at a high pressure region on the front of the car. The added pressure can result in a little extra power at high speeds.

the key is you have to be at speeds high enough to actually get extra air into the intake. i don't know much about it but i'd estimate probably no slower than 30-35 mph...so if you're thinking about off the line gains, circumvent this. it won't do anything.
