Vararam Installation in 2010 V8

I'm looking into getting a Vararam intake and have seen several people complaining about installation in the V6. I have a 2010 SS, and the installation instructions from Vararam seem really simple and straightforward for the V8. I'm sure many people on this forum have installed this intake in the SS. Can I expect the same issues as those with the V6, or is it really as simple as Vararam makes it look? Thanks very much.

V6 folks are not the brightest!! They bought a Camaro with 2 missing cylinders! Why are you trolling the v6 section? They are different intake bud! Lol

It's the easiest cai I've ever installed. There's a work around by Vararam for holding the radiator in place. Their solution for that kind of sucks, so I did my own thing like a few others have.

Vararam here too! No problems and easy install. The only PITA is having to completely remove it to clean/service the filter.
