Default Anything I should know before installing my COBB intake?

So my intake is a few days away, which means about 2 weeks and I want to know if there is anything specific I need to do once I have installed it.

I'm guessing resetting the ECU would be one thing to do, have I to worry about anything? Or is it straight forward?

Thanks.

You could do it before if you just didn't drive until you put the intake on.

Install is pretty straight forward. Put mine on today took ~10min. I'm using a catch can though, most of the time was fighting with that. Should take you ~30min.

I used some Velcro patches (the furry sides) to protect my filter. It works pretty well but the brace mount will eventually eat it away. The only real solution is to bend that mount away from your intake.

It took me 10min, I said it would take him 30min. Seriously though, if you have small hands putting on the tubing should be easy and the install would go fast.

Before you start the install, disconnect your negative battery cable, and when you're finished hook it back up. Kill 2 birds with one stone

Oh yeah take off all the bracket thingies. The two stantions coming up from the engine that hold the stock airbox. It really cleans up the look of the engine compartment.
