Finally installed my pusher intake. Took all weekend. Here are some notes about the install that I wish I had known.

Useful:
Extra M6x1.0 bolts and nuts (I lost a few)
Extra 5/16 fuel line (had to cut some)
Small hose clamps
1/4 in for everything:
10mm Socket
Wobble head extensions, various sizes
Flexible extension
swivel extension
InLb torque wrench
10mm wrench (thin)
10mm ratchet wrench (get flex head if you can)
Tape
Long flat head screw driver
Extendable Magnet
Coat hanger

Getting the stock part off is a PITA, but there are videos online.

The hardest part for me was getting the one piece back in. I used various combinations of all the tools listed for each bolt and nut.

Here’s the only way I could get the nuts started in the front:
-Place tape on the end of the flat blade screwdriver and stick on the nut.
-Fish the screwdriver in there and press the nut onto a stud.
-While keeping light pressure on the nut with the screwdriver, come in with a coat hanger from a different angle and turn the nut.
-From there you can fish in a socket to finish it off.

I couldn’t find torque specs, so I tightened everything to 110 inlb.

Good job. Now you need to get a S&B CAI.

Yep CAI is on the list. I feel the DIY intake mod (cut up the box and use weather stripping) supplies enough air to the stock turbo for now.

I might do a 64mm turbo rebuild soon because I noticed some oil in the charge pipes.
