Cool Vararam ordered !! , ...install ?

Just ordered my Vararam yesterday from Juiced ...
Just had a couple questions about the install:
I have the VMAX TB, has anyone had issues with this setup?
and how did you all cut your radiator tabs for the install?

Good choice vararam is one of the best. I have one on my SS and love it but it was a pain to install. I didn't do any cutting but the install just takes a lil more time than other cai.

Congrats you'll love it.

I have the VR + RX ported TB combo, and there are no issues.

Any kind of a dremel type device would work best for cutting the brackets, but really I just used a small hacksaw. Just takes time.

Make sure you cut it down plenty far, basically to where the side you cut is equally as low as or below the rubber grommets (which you may or may not need to remove also.)

Cutting them is easy. Well only if you have the correct tool. So far so good with my Vararam, I enjoy it alot.

The pre-cut will cost an extra 20 or 30 bucks I believe. Save yourself the money and do it yourself...again not hard. Just takes time. (unless you absolutely have no tool to do this, then the cost might be worth it lol.)
