Comments: The instructions warn you to be delicate with the nipple of the hose that connects to the waste gate solenoid, where in fact the more delicate portion is on the waste gate solenoid itself. I broke the nipple off of of the waste gate solenoid and didn't know that it would cause a loss in boost so I had to repair it and now I've got my boost back. Also there is a stubborn wire harness that I had to disassemble from the top of the bellhousing of the tranny in order to fit the Tip into the silicone

Comments: The instruction manual that came with the product was very detailed in each step. However, it did fail to mention one minor detail about removing a little screw which is used to attach a brace that supports the original fitment for the stock shifter. The drill bit that came with worked perfectly and the shifter protrudes from the leather shift cover but it's not noticeable unless you purposely physically feel for the short shifter. This is a great mod and I don't feel the need to upgrade to a stage 2 or 3.
note: The entire middle console assembly isn't required to be removed. I successfully drilled the hole and preformed the entire install without removing. I just removed the cup holder piece, and the piece for the shifter that ends right on top of the cigarette lighter.

Comments: Replacing the rear shocks was a pain in the ass! Otherwise it was well worth it. FYI, the stock KYB shocks lasted 80,000 miles before they started to go out. Not the greatest with performance but stellar durability.
