Sounds like the short path to a sticky thread.

I think that's exactly what I'm going to do. My dad's girlfriend has my same car, in much worse shape, but it has the stock airbox still and it will be great for taking pictures. I just don't want anyone to think that installing this is difficult, cause it's really not when you have proper directions for your car.

It really isn't, as long as one is prepared for the snags that aren't mentioned in the directions. I wasted so much time guessing. I mean when I installed the header, it was four directions and the first one said "remove exhaust manifold per shop manual instructions." Really? C'mon.

The Samco couplers worked much better than the supplied ones, but they are a little expensive and the one adapter had to be custom made. That along with wider, stronger band clamps have kept it securely in place for almost two years.
