If you have 30 minutes to install, thats all itll take removing the stock intake and installing the new one (if that). VERY easy to install and stock intake removes just as easily. You can actually prep the intake in the house if you wanted to with a 10mm wrench and screw driver, then it just attaches w/ the silicone coupler and hose clamp.

1 piece of advice, the screws on the front lip that drops down; the instructions show the bolt head showing and the nut side facing in but it will sometimes rub your AC condenser and Id suggest turning them around. Doesnt look at nice, but better option IMO.

Thanks for the advice doz, I will try that. As for the time thing my hours are from 8 am to midnight. Maybe if I'm lucky I can sneak away on Easter for a few hours.

Arth I ordered it last Monday. They had one that was returned. They made sure everything was right with it and I got it on Friday.

I think it is a different installation between 3rd and 4th gens. Not sure but the 4th gen looks a bit easier I was reading an install thread on 3rd gen and it seemed a bit more involved

It is different. I think the hardest part is going to be getting the hoses to the front bumper.

Woops... I forget the 3rd and 4th gens are mixed in this area of the forum, my bad.
