$100 for the install is waaay too much. Find a buddy to help you out.

$100 is way too much, it should only take them an hr to do it, so maybe $50 at the most.

You should install it yourself, just read the "how to" in the installs section & it'll be a walk in the park

do it yourself and start learning about your car. i's also more satisfying knowing you can work on your car (at least with bolt-ons). plus you save money for other mods thumbsup

Do it yourself/with a friend. I was really worried about messing something up when installing my CAI but I had help from a friend and once we started it was so easy I felt like kicking myself for worrying.

It will not void your warrany but if something happens to the MAF sensor or your throttle body chances are they will blame it on the new Intake.

Bottom line is they will blame problems to related systems on the Intake if you have problems but they have to prove the new Intake was the cause of the problem.

read ALL the directions before you even open any parts...go thru and look at all the crap you have to take apart, and all the connections you have to make when you install it, and then decide. If you are this nervous I say get a buddy that knows what's going on and have them help you, or if you have to pay for it then $50 should be the most...it doesn't seem to much to pay to have peace of mind...Your profile says you're in orlando ... give the boys at Titan Motorsports a call, I know they'll be able to help out and treat you right thumbsup

i did it myself on the mustang. was pretty easy. don't know it might be harder on a celica though. you should be able to figure it out i would think. there's no way i'd pay someone $100 to install it.
