Just a CFM Throttle body. The kit is a F2 stage 1 kit. Stage 2 coming soon. Like as soon as I get the intercooler. I have everything else. However I'm waiting on the tuner. The post office was said they were going to deliver it today. This sucks. I can't even test the boost.

Cjohn364 yeah I installed it myself. No instrustions since I'm taking some pics for Ricardo for the instructions. Had to call him a time or two to find out how to get a piece to fit right. However anyone who buys this kit won't have to worry about not having instructions now.

It was a PITA. Mostly the stock exhaust mani that had to come out. If you haven't removed one before this might surprise you. You have to take it out from the TOP. To help yourself along thought you might want to remove the lower engine mount so you can tilt the engine. Putting the turbo back there was not picnic either. Easier than taking the stock mani out though.

Looks sweet , I enjoy doing the DIY until you start running into problems and then I get disgusted real quick and want to take it to a shop or ball up in a corner and cry.

Well so far I've done all my own work. Most if not all by my self. I have swapped rear subframes, upgrade to SVT brakes front and rear, Catback, CAI (now off the car), Front and rear antisway bars, springs with shocks and struts, harness bar, short shifter, turbo kit, sound system, throttle body. I love to know my car inside and out. Also if something that I install breaks I only have my self to blame not a "professional".
