As fast as they installed it I have still had no issues with movement. It sets just as it did when they finished.

heck the cutting of the brackets will probably take me twice that nine minutes, will be lucky if I do it in under an hour!

It isnt that hard, although the video makes it look easy, having that band saw helps. just take your time with a good hack saw and dremel out the edges to smooth it out, maybe 30 minutes tops to do both brackets

not really worried about the install, the only question is when. after some reading I have decided to order a catch can and breather and will probably install both a little closer to spring. Did get the Vararam in today and all items are there and accounted for. the whole set up looks really impressive, can't wait :o)

I am planning to use a cutting/grinder attachment to do the brackets...do you guys foresee an issue there?

Also, I don't quite have the funds allocated for that rx catch can. I know is it a really good thing to have (especially with the cai) but do you know any good discounts or sales? thanks x10

hey jshaf - how do you like your VR?

I love mine. It's really quiet at low RPM's but the ability to blip the motor & turns heads on demand is fun! lol

Why is everyone cutting the brackets? Why doesn't VR pre-cut the brackets for us?

I asked this same question many times, all i can say is ...if you see the materials used, and compare with other CAI (material) then i guess you understand . In other words the materials are not the best, the fit is not the best, the time it took to engineer this thing is not the best........BUT the performance IS.
So, sacrifice quality for permagrin
