Well I have to say it was as easy as expected. It only took 20-30 minutes. I already had the lower air box out because of the altered stock to CAI. All I have to say is, it seems to be a good item and for the 125 i spent on it, I couldn't pass it up. You can feel the difference over the stock. Can't wait to test it out more when the roads dry up. I'll try to get pics later.
