Re: Re: thats so pretty

That kinda sucks.. That means you're out of a car for a week eh? :sad: (you can't drive the car without the ECU right?)

I was thinking about having a shop install it for me, but the idea of it sitting around for a week doesn't sound too appealing to me.

congrats !



You will like it !
You installed all by yourself ??? You da man!!!

Do you hate that they don't give the tubing intake anymore. Instead they give us the hose. Look at dondon's sc ...he got a tubing pipe connect to the intake.

Do you think it would be too much trouble to scan the instructions for the install that came with the kit and post them online? I'm sure a bunch of us would be quite curious as to see how their manual is setup, and to see if the install is a possible DIY for them. I'm sure everyone would be thankful and very appreciative! hows about it??

You're going to love the power. I installed mine myself as well.

Needless to say, I've surprised a few 323s, 325s, 328s, and 330s !

Do you have any larger pics and did you notice any gain in lower end power?
