Anybody? I'm guessing the size bolt I need is a 10mm; I'll just break out the measuring tape and measure the length from the bolt hole to the back of the stock radiator mounts( after I rotate them 180 degrees) then just add another 1/2 inch or so.

For now I've got the radaitor tied down with some small rope

Take the bolts that came out of it into your local auto store to match then up.

I am giving it more time. There is no way I'm shipping them my computer. I think they threw in a tune that's good for wot but not for everyday driveability. I asked if they could do one of the diablos so that I could get a copy of my stock tune and they looked at me like I had two heads.

They use different software than the Diablos...

We're working on getting them to JAX in the coming months...keep your eyes peeled on the Jacksonville thread and maybe you could swing up when they're in town.

I seriously doubt that the tune was done for WOT...but...my advice is to call Ron at Vengeance...if you're having any issues...you need to let him know.

Talking Arrived Today!!

Hey Guys....just wanted to let everyone know my VARARAM arrived today!! Can't wait to install and let ya'll know how it goes!!...Oh ya, I was #294 on the first list!!

Way to busy getting ready for my son getting back from Afghanistan....OORAH!!!
Only took me about 20 min. for the install, full tune model. I've got about 125 miles on her so far and have had no issues whatsoever!! Finally ran her at WOT yesterday morning and the acceleration is SWEET!!! Very noticeable improvement, no bucking at all. I did not drop battery power, just let the computer learn on her own, ran a little rough for the fist 15 min or so and then she cleaned right up! No tune until I get the long tubes installed and then we'll go from there...very satisfied so far and as I've seen posted many times before yes; Patrick does like to chat!!!...but he's very helpful and seems to be a very passionate man!!

With the radiator bolts installed the radiator hose shouldn't come close to the pully. I've got about two fingers (1.5" of clearance).

But I could see this becoming an issue for guys not running radiator bolts. Without the bolts the radiator moves back and forth with ease. I find it hard to believe this was accepted in the beginning (by Vararam and Camaro owners).
