Finally got one of my long-awaited mods done today. Bought used for $150 and install was fairly easy.

Like we talked about, put the hose clamps you are missing on, and you'll be good 2 go man.
Excellent choice of intake, and great deal you got. Enjoy it!

I'm not sure if I should powerwash the engine bay or not. Is that the best way to clean it?

W/o the volant snorkle the volant intake isnt really any good.. I have a volant btw, and when i put the stock stuff back on with a k&n filter i didnt notice any lower end lost, but i did notice gaining high end with the stock box.

I always use the engine degreasing foam and then just spray it out with a garden hose(I wouldn't recommend using a pressure washer), of course covering all electronics with a plastic bag(in other words dont get water on electrcal components) then after I start it for 10 minutes to help it dry a bit. The an hour to two hours later I use armour-all on all the plastic parts it works good.

Soap and water do the same thing as engine degreaser though, but you still need to be careful of electrical components.

^^yeah thats what I use, the enginebrite foam, couldn't remember who made it, simple green also works wonders, smells like spearmint and it is biodegradable. Im going to use this next time, I use it on the CNC bandsaw and the CNC mill(both of which pump out about 30 gallons of oil based coolant a minute(it makes a mess), at work and it cleans off the coolant residue like nothing else ive tried, even cleans the soot off my hands better than the orange sandsoap when the day is over.
