Angry Vararam does not fit on 2012

I just got my Vararam intake for my 2012 2SS.

The instructions and website said to check the MAF sensor so I did. Of course I had the weak one. I called Vararam to see if they had some available.

They replied with "No but for you its not going to matter because our intake does not fit on a 2012."

WHAT!!!!

They stated this has just recently been brought to their attention and asked me to return thier product.

WHAT!!!!

Has anyone attempted to install this product in a 2012 2SS and have trouble with it not fitting? Is there something I can do to modify it to fit?

Apparently the radiator cap is in a different place on the 2012.

Pack it up and send it back. The radiator cap was moved for 2012...who knows why and the vararam just can't be made to fit. They say they're working on a 2012 and up Vararam, but with their record it will be a long time before it's available. For what it's worth, the Vararam is worth waiting for.

Most places list this on their websites. I know we do.
