How to install Vararam
Vararam Air Grabber Ram Air Induction System for Dodge 2009-2012 Hemi Powered Trucks
Items needed for installation: 1. Flathead screwdriver/ Long reach 2. Box knife (if you choose to cut the shroud versus removal) 3. 10mm socket/ratchet 4. Approximately 15 minutes of time
Important : Please completely read through all the instructions first before starting the installation of this product. If at any point you are uncomfortable attempting this installation on your own, please refer the installation to a qualified service technician. Please email our technical staff at [email protected] with any questions.
Step ONE: Remove the OEM air temp sensor by squeezing and pulling on the wiring harness.
STEP TWO: Twist off the oil cap- This will allow you to remove the OEM engine cover. Simply lift up and the cover will come off. Dont forget to put the oil cap back on after removing the cover.
STEP THREE: Remove OEM intake hose using flat head screwdriver
STEP FOUR: Remove the OEM air box- just pull up this will release with a good strong pull straight up.
STEP FIVE: Remove the front shroud cover. Using your flat head , pry these round plastic push clips "UP". They will release with a stiff pull. Remove this OEM foam cover out of your way. (Optional) You may choose to cut out the center section at a later time , so that it may be reinstalled to give a more OEM look.
STEP SIX: Move the wiring harness in front of the horn- you will need to clip or pull the wire holders as well as remove the horn bracket screws (10MM) Once the harness is put in front of the horn you will re-attach the horn assembly. This frees up the restriction caused by the harness.
STEP SEVEN: Assembling the VR system. The easiest way to do this is to, attach the front wing to the upper plenum outside of the truck on a nice flat surface, like a kitchen table or workbench.
STEP EIGHT: Install the air temp sensor at this time, push and twist, You may need to use some lube like W/D You will need your 10mm socket wrench and a screwdriver Install the screws and lock nuts as shown here.
STEP NINE: You are now ready to place the system on the truck as one whole unit.
STEP TEN: Remove the short 45 deg section of the PCV line, this will become your new PCV line. using this shorter end Simply reinstall this back on to the valve cover and push the chrome breather into the short 45 deg OEM hose, you can
rotate the hose in any position desired
Re-Learn time - You should at some point disconnect the negative battery cable for two hours then reconnect it. This will allow the ECU to reset the fuel trims, now simply drive normal for about 30 miles or so. This will allow the long term fuel trims to set in.
1. How often do I need to clean the airfilter?
About every 6-10,000 miles depending on the driving conditions
2. Do I need to worry about high water?
Not unless you drive in water that is 3ft or deeper. There are drains that will drain off excess water and moisture.
3. Do I need to remove the system to put oil in?
NO, simply use a funnel when putting oil. This will keep you from possibly making a mess when pouring.
