I still have not been on the Dyno yet but all is good and I have the bonus of the sound of a turbo on my car. People in my club asked if I install the turbo over the winter when in fact itís just cold air intake!
We Love to hear how happy our customers are with our products

We work Long and hard in the R&D dep doing 3D modeling, test fitting ,flow testing and heavy on-road and track data logging to bring you the very best performing induction systems you can buy.

With the C-7 units we decided to step things up by using injection molding for some components for precision and quality.

WE are glad so many are happy with the new C-7 product !

The Z-06 and ZR-1 boys are up for release next and are they in for a real treat!

We're still waiting for the test results on the BMS filter in your intake.

Default Z06?

Why do I get the feeling that something didn't go as planned with the Z06 version? I was all hyped up about this thing!

All is better than fine. Injection Toolmakers are backed up with an OEM's tooling order. Our tools are next in line and are only there for small tweaks, so once they start it will be quick.

I have been following this thread since it was opened and was really on the fence regarding the VARARAM TCR7 CAI. Watched all the back and forth comments. On Thursday Day 1 of Carlisle, I met with Steve from VARARAM at Carlisle. He answered all my questions and confirmed that VARARAM techs would not be doing installs locally. When asked his thoughts on the possibility of the A&A installation team’s ability to successfully install the system he felt they could (even though he was not in a position to speak on their behalf and had not been in discussions with them concerning the possibility). He then contacted Patrick the tech at VARARAM to ensure that he would be on standby to receive any potential calls from A&A should they run into difficulties. I then approached the A&A team (Tim and others) about their ability and willingness to conduct the installation. After they reviewed the system and the instructions and due to their experience in installing other manufactures CAIs (Magnaflow, K&N etc) they felt very comfortable and confident they could do the work. Went back to Steve and made the purchase, handed off the system and Vette to A&A and approximately 90 minutes later the system was on my Vette with absolutely no issues. No CEL, no disconnecting the battery and no whistling!!! The car ran perfectly. This was all accomplished within a couple of hours on the first day (Thursday) at Carlisle. I delayed putting this out to the forum until I had sufficient time in running with the new system. Happy to say my Vette and the VARARAM TCR7 were made for each other. Now this maybe my imagination but the car’s throttle seems even more responsive than ever. Thanks and thumbs up to VRARAM and Steve along with huge thumbs up to A&A.

Okay. Just curious. I just often associate A&A with superchargers.. for obvious reasons.
