Ok so I bought the intake about a month ago from another memeber on here...and I want to install it in the spring problem is I dont have anyone to do it for me anymore.....does anyone close to me know how to install it I'll pay or can someone reccomend a garage that could do it for me? I live in southeastern MA...I also have side skirts and a front lip I will need painted and put on are there any reasonable places...keep in mind a friend was suppose to help with all this but im on my own now and i do not want to screw my car up in anyway so i figured I would ask you guys for advice.....Thanks for any help you can give!!

HONESTLY you can do the install yourself it's quite cut and dry.

I have recently installed one myself and it was a fairly easy process. The most time consuming and most intense portion was the wiring of the ecu but that was only due to me taking my sweet time soldering the wires in cleanly and heat shrinking..

I'm telling you, you can do this with a simple wiring diagram! If i can be of any assistance, please feel free to let me know! Give it a shot and learn a little!

It's not hard at all.At least install intake and then worry about the wiring.
IT'S WORTH IT

Okay i think this is it,


Soldering wires & connectors

It really isn't difficult, just takes getting used to! get yourself some spare wires and practice putting the heat shrink on the wire, and then solder the wires together. Keep practicing until your comfortable and I assure you can get it.

This intake was honestly my first time doing a full on soldering job, and i am totally happy with my results!!
