    spray some pb blaster on the bolts and let it seek in for a few mins, before you try to remove the bolts. helps a little

    dude relax its easy as shit, allow yourself between 2-3 hours and youll be good to go. all you need to do is take off the intake hose and box and the air hose for the air inj. pump and then take the stock manifold off really simple just take your time and itll work fine. note if youre not real good with basic tools allow yourself a little extra time!

    I'm not totally sure but it should only be a few bucks...I've heard people say they soaked the bolts twice a day for a week and they came loose a lot easier that way. More time for the solvent to penetrate=easier to remove later.

    Im suprised no one has pointed it out yet...but when your header'S come in....let me know where you put that extra one, because only one is going to bolt on to the motor. :D:D:D

    I kid I kid...but seriously let us know how it performs because i would like to get one for mine too.

    For anyone who has done this before, how many dollar$ was it to have installed. I want to do this , but am hesititant with it cuz i'm still under warranty. And also how is it , like mpg change, how well does it feel at lower rpms.... or does it feel like power is at higher rpm:popcorn::spy:
