thanks. The wire loom is from PepBoys & the silicone hosing is hoseTechniques. I took it out last night for a spin, the the temp. was already like, 10 degrees. It felt like it had more kick when I accelerated, especially once my secondaries opened. I'll tell you what tho, I can actually hear it a little over my exhaust. I can hear that hissing sound that you hear with a stock exhaust. Sounds sweet!

Neil: Yea I Just drilled right through the battery tray. About 2 minutes with a 3.5" hole saw and a long enough drill bit to keep it in place. Just make the hole as close to the end of the tray as possible and it will fit no problems.

Kooter: I posted in the Problems section during the install and ZEXCougar posted some nice pictures of where to drill the hole. I think the topic is 'installing cold air intake' or something like that. I'm using the AEM shortram.
