April 1st is come and gone, and our trust issues with any of the content that was released have subsided. However, some people do April Fool’s Day better than others, and Holley sent this year’s shenanigans to the sky by not just producing a silly rendering, but actually building something for it. Behold the Sky-Ram intake. As you can see, it’s a bit absurd, and we’re here for it.
Hagerty has pointed out that Holley is known for taking their April Fool’s jokes to the extreme, as last year they had built what they called the Moonshot; a 3,500-horsepower nitrous oxide kit that stacks ten of its CrossHair plate systems to create a spectacle atop an intake manifold. Holley suggest you incorporate the Moonshot with the Sky-Ram intake to punch out a casual 7,000 horsepower.
Holley Sky-Ram Air Intake Wins April Fool’s Day
Holley could have easily gone with a photo-only prank; Photoshop would have made for a good enough joke for the internet. But for the video, a genuine part was required. Pieces were 3D printed and bolted together. Holley uses 3D prints for development and tests them as working parts, which means we could have heard this thing run. We still might get to as Holley hinted that they might post something that’ll give us a peek at what the hilarious April Fool’s joke sounds like.
The callback to the previous year’s joke made this video even better, upping the game with two Moonshots placed atop the Holley Sky-Ram Intake. If this were real, you’d undoubtedly see some high-performance numbers… before your engine blows up. In addition, the cardboard template, saw blades, and crayons needed in order to cut a hole in your hood to fit the massive blind spot was also a great touch.
