Install was easy. I bought a used n54 airbox as i didnt want to drill a hole in the factory one.
Basically drill a 2" hole in the airbox and use the supplied jbweld and attach the adapter kit and let it cure (i left it overnite). Dont drill the hole too low, else it wont clear the diverter valve.
Other than that, its pretty straightforward and there should be a bunch of intake DIY floating around...remove cowl to remove airbox etc.

One detail: we now have replaced the JB Weld with marine grade epoxy putty. It's easier to work with and cuts down on installation time.
