Oh man. What a major pita. It is a fairly easy install. Mangusons instructions are well done. I was, and still am, missing a lot. Being a used kit, some stuff was already used or just missing. Nuts, screws, a fuse, the fuel line, a couple hoses. But it's no more than 30 minutes worth.

Oh, and I need to fab up a air hose to work with my CAI. I can't use the maggie one with mine.

I still have to button it all up and reroute some things to more aesthetic places. But took this before we left the house.

If it were a brand new kit, it would have been quicker. But it's been fun. Been a long time since I got down and dirty under a hood.
