Just installed the AIRAID MXP... Didn't realize the big lump of a V8 could sound that good. :lick:
Points to note for future owners/customers...
1) Make sure you read the install instructions in detail. I just browsed it casually cos I've done many of these before and thought I was some hotshot. 10 minutes into the stock intake removal I was stuck... Couldn't reach the third bolt on the airbox to remove it (the one closest to the front, right at the bottom). 10 minutes of frustration trying to snake my hand down there and I was like :wtf:
Anyway. Went back through the instructions and found I just needed to remove the 1 bolt right on top, and then pull hard on the airbox base. It would just pop out with the bolts and grommets still attached. :ftard:
2) When installing the AIRAID intake tube, the instructions state you should first install it on the hump hose, and then onto the reducing coupler. When I tried that, it would not slip onto the TB of the engine. Tried it the other way around (reducing coupler first, then hump hose) and it slid right in. Easy peasy :coolsmile
3) For f*&k sake, don't drop a screw in the engine bay. :bangit:
4) Don't start drinking beer before the install. Start drinking during the install. That way, at least some part of the install will be done while still fully sober. :jester:
