Remeber, You're not doing a proper job unless you cut yourself at least twice and bang your arms at least once.

Wow... like 6 hours and lots of swearing later its done. Thanks in a huge part to braineack and the guy whos garage had the most outrageous airtool setup ever. Some drawbacks:

We realized my plugs and possibly my wires are shot to hell so my car isnt running very well.
Furthermore, on the ride home, my turbo was screaming like a banshee, which I am thinking is the BOV opening up prematurely (needs some tightening)

Install went fairly smooth. A few issues here and there that I we weren't able to work out. It's also a lot easier when the AFPR and MSD box are already hooked up. And not having to install the AFM.

I was able to install Stripe's intercooler kit today first hand and I couldn't have been more impressed with the quality, fit, and mounting bracket. Very easy and straight forward install.

Installs are a lot easier when you have an ASE certified guy's garage with every tool known to man at your disposal and an air line at every ten feet.

Brad sorry I couldn't stick around for the test drive. As long as it's not sounding like this: http://www.magnaflowonline.com/catal...load/spool.wmv

Hurry up and get some pics up homey!
