Finally put mine on, and I'm so glad I took it to my parents' house to do it because my dad has everything you could ever need short of a lift to work on your car. Because we ran into a few problems installing the new intake.

Turns out, my stock intake was replaced recently, and right off the bat we discovered that the screws holding in my MAS were different than the threads in the aFe tubing. So we had to find some screws that worked and modified them to fit. We also couldn't use the rubber gasket from the new MAS in the aFe tubing because it didn't match up right. Had to use some silicone to seal it. Huge flaw in the design if you're rocking a newer stock intake tubing.

The metal tubing band clamp thing, one of them was too small. I ended up dropping one of them into the bottom of the engine, which delayed us an hour or so trying to dig that out.

Everything is on though, so I'll have to keep an eye on that MAS to make sure it doesn't throw any codes.
