Houston crowd, install?

Well if my intake and my stress bar come in on Tuesday I would like to install them on Wednesday. Which brings me to the point of the post, anyone up for an install Wednesday morning/afternoon. Would anyone be up for that? And if so where at?

I'd come by, those are about the easiest mods to do. Intake shouldn't take more than 15 minutes, and that includes disconnecting the battery.

Only problem is, I'm not driving 8 hours round-trip for a less-than-one-hour install.

^^ I know we can't even get him to drive up for an all day event how are you going to get an hour out of him.
JUST KIDDING JASON!!! You know I love you man.

Justin, the stress bar is the simplest thing to put on. You remove a few bolts and put the bar over the studs and put them pack on. I believe you only have to remove 2 bolts per side.

Yeah I know but I am mostly using the install as an excuse to hang out and possibly drink some beer. I am assuming that a socket wrench is needed at some point and that is virtually the only basic tool I don't have.

And again hanging out is fun too.
