    I think the template from Cruiser outfitters, would have been worth twice its weight in gold, but if youre good at eyeballing stuff, it won't be hard. The holes in the fender, I drilled them out to 3/4", so I had plenty of wiggle room. The backing washers are large, and the snorkel body covers the holes, so no one will see how big of holes I drilled.

    $120, I have a 4 banger which uses a different Intake from your guys. I didn't need to buy a angle reducer.

    I am seriously considering pulling the trigger on this. After following the thread for a while, for those that have it, has it worked out over time?
