how long did it take to put it in? can/would you please do a write-up maybe of the install or does it come with pretty good directions (it cant be that hard anyway to put it in? could it?)

BTW
i installed Injen Short Ram Intake today...damn it sounds so good especially in lift. also very noticable gains

Well I took my time and wanted to make it a very clean install so it took me about 3 hours.

If you just want to throw it in, it shouldn't take more than an hour.

I didn't even follow the directions they sent because I thought I could do a better job, plus the diagram was a bit confusing.

As for a write up I guess I could that later.

You wouldn't think it would make a big difference ... but as soon as I got to take some nice sweeping turns I could feel how much firmer the rear was. My car feels so much more rigid now.

I love my ride, no more body-roll or creaking from taking turns to fast.

My suspension is now 100% finished thumbsup

To answer steven and verano:

I used some regular rubber hose (1/8" I believe) that I split on the seam and then glued it around the hole.

It's a generic hose that didn't have any visible stamped writing on it.

Price: $150.00

yea dude, that looks awesome. It looks a whole lot easier to install than the TRD rear strut. Notice any difference driving? thumbsup
