naw I have to do the deletes because a portion of the inlet tube is touching the motor so the manifold won't sit right. so I don't have to shave the walls?

shave the walls? you mean remove the dividers and/or port the tgvs? no, you don't have to. Pull the brass bushings out, drill, tap, put in bolts with a lot of jb-weld.

i did this mod my self and i can say it is a pain in the ass so i would recommend that if you have no experience with a dremel, sawzull or if you do not have the space or time then pay a guy like wrxsubiemod to do it cause experimenting on your car does not always work out well!

Yes you can as long as you have the CEL code deleted from you're ECU. I passed smog with ported intake manifold, tgv's, head's, an highly moded motor with a APS SR40 turbo +tune. All I did was put my on OEM Catted Downpipe! Just gotta find a shop the doesn't care about passing the visual, but I know a bunch of them.

BTW people that do not know, you will need a tune for this mod asap or good bye motor.
