Stock setup



Removed stock box



Put the front of the car on ramps. I do not drive onto the ramps. I lift the front and slide the ramps under the tires.



Removed shroud



Reversed the bottom clips holding the Z06 screens. I painted the top of the clips black so they can’t be seen through the front of the grills.



Ram tubes



Installed the scoops to the bumper. I shimmed them to fit my car, 5 up top, 3 on the bottom. I also put extra washers under the bolt heads to protect my bumper. This pulls the bolts away from the front of the bumper.



Scoops come up under the hood.



Finished system. I replaced the supplied 4mm Allen head airbox bolts with heavy-duty ¼” x 1 ¾” hex head bolts from Home Depot.

Great Pic's! I'm going to install mine this weekend .. it will be even easier now .. the car is even the same color:thumb:

With a little more write-up we could we put this in the how too section?

>>Do you need to take the radiator shroud out?

Yes, and the instructions that come with the VaraRam do not mention the two white plastic stud-clips that hold the shroud to the AC Condensor. I popped the clips off the condensor, removed the metal rings holding them to the shroud, and then twisted the clips back onto the condensor.

This picture shows one of the clips, with the metal ring removed.





>And when do you put it back in?

After you mount and shim the scoops to the bumper. Make sure you hook the top end of the shroud under the lip of the plastic radiator top crossover support.

>i wonder if they will come out with a z06
>only air ram without the fog holes

There is no reason for Patrick to do that. If you don't mount fogs in those holes air will get through helping cool under the hood.

Thanks for the great post rbartick.:thumb: Your pictures and caption really take the mystery out of installing a VaraRam.

Looks like something most folks could do if they have the ramps and some patience. :jammin:

Thanks for this post and pics. I just got my second vette, an 01 Black Z06 and want to install a cold air system. This is my daily driver and was wondering if the VaraRam is the way to go or should I try something else?
Any advice is appreciated!

Steve
