Steven is right!!!! 3-5 hours!!! only for the Intake!!! grin . I installed it today, in the freezing temp. took me around 4+ hours. The hardest part was getting the bumper off, the stock Intake, and reaching into tiny places to unscrewded bolts. grin .

QUESTION: How would I know whether everything is correct, and nothing will happen? As of now: No check engine light, no nasty smell, just a hissing sound when i turned off my engine. I also check all the clamps and tighten real tight. anything else i should check?
thumbsup or thumbsdown

I live on North Lake Shore Dr. between Addison and Waveland... That's the 3600 block... Definately, it'd be cool to meet up and work on our cars.

I go to my brother in Elgin then down to Chicago. Any mod on your car yet? When are you planning to install your springs? and what kind of springs do you have? I got Eibach Pro-kit. And do you have all the necessary equipments? I got 2 jackstands and 2 hydraulic jacks (that's it grin ). Other equipments, i think i'm gonna rent.

If you are serious, I will go home to get my tools... I just moved here from Mich. I have one hydraulic jack, two jack stands, torque wrench, and other misc. stuff. We need to rent a spring compressor from Autozone. Its free to rent so, no prob there... Maybe we should write a suspension install, I haven't seen one on this site. I need to look up the torque specs for our suspension too...

i'm all about it. you got any place to do it? if not, we can drive to my brother in law house and do it, like around 20 min drive. 90 East. Elgin. Or we can do it @ your place or wherever there are free space. My brother will helps too, he's all about it grin . I will only available sometimes Saturday or Sunday (i work & have clases). Let me know before hand when or we can do on spring break ( i'll asked a few days off work grin ). Installing springs ain't easy, more help the merrier. so let me know or hit me up @ AIM = m3 n u
