    I'm pretty sure you have to cut something out for the intake hose to go through.

    You have to cut the radiator support, and you also have to cut your MAF sensor wires, extend them, then resolder.

    I've heard from a lot of people that they really like the intake and never had any issues. I've also heard bad things about it from many others regarding problems.

    If you are good at soldering, don't mind cutting your factory wires, and live in a place where you don't get real heavy rain, I think you would enjoy it.

    I HIGHLY recommend getting at least the MAF calibrator to tune for it though.

    Yea, it does something other than make noise.

    The placement of the inlet takes advantage of the dynamic pressure that builds up in front of the vehicle the faster you drive, the more power it will make.

    If you have any questions just give me a call, 877-887-3872 x3.

    For the most part soldering is pretty simple. Anybody can do it. To do it well takes practice.

    That was done on my 2005 XRunner and the only mod was the URD TCAI. It was without the URD MAF Sensor Calibrator.
