Good luck! I bought one about 3 months ago but I chickened out after reading the directions (I got as far as removing the intercooler). The Perrin video makes it look sooo easy but looks can be deceiving! If you do go ahead with the install PLEASE take some pics and post.

I'll just tell you it's a PITA to do. I pretty much had to cut out the stock inlet pipe in order to get the Perrin one in. If you get the stock one out you have to squeeze the perrin one in which is also a pain. So good luck. Let me know how t goes.

i had to cut my stocker out, and scraped about 1/2lb of skin off my knuckles doing it, but it can be done without removing the tmic, or the intake manifold.

that being said, i wont be doing that again. its just too much of a pain in the ass.
go slow, dont get too pissed at it, and use lube where lube is needed

This is one of those mods I'd rather swallow my pride and pay Solid to do it.

Just did a Gimmick inlet on my ride, had to remove / loosen the entire turbo to get the forward angle needed to get it in the inlet, what a PITA, I had some leaks I needed to fix so for me it was a sorta good thing I had to strip down to that level, TBH if I had to do another I would rather pay some one 100 bucks to do it..

The only one I have done took all of 45 minutes.Save yourself the time and cut all the pieces sticking out of the stock one and rip it out.Try to fold the new one in as much as you can tie some string around it slide it in place cut string done.
