As I am a non-mechanic, was it difficult to install?

Mine actually came with it on it when I bought it...

I take mine off to clean the filters since I've found that to be the easiest way, it's a piece of cake.

Yes, I loosen the engine side of my smooth tube in front of the intake manifold and take the whole thing off/out.

I guess once I actually get the intake in my hands it will make more sense.

No, my mechanics did it for me…. She told me that the most difficult part is to remove the torx bolts that hold the standard air filter box. You remove the filter and will find these two torx bolts at the bottom corners of the front cover.

I'm also thinking of getting the K&N Twin Flow or the Blackwing. My concern isn't the installation, but if I will have codes thrown afterwards. Am I concerned over nothing????

Sorry LaMagred, didn't mean to hijack your post.

I had the Blackwing put in, no codes. The guy said the system would adjust to the new parameters in about 40 miles with no intervention from me. Guess it worked :)

I have the K&N Fuel Injection Performance Kit. If you can turn a wrench, you can install any of them!
