Here is my 2 cents. Dont start the project until you verify you have all the components. There was no parts list and I wouldnt find out I needed something until I got to that step, happened repeatedly, and that delayed me weeks with the car in pieces. Second, order the thick intake manifold gasket from Monkeywrenchracing.com. This will reduce or maybe eliminate the grinding of the manifold and VVT which touch with the stock gasket (and potentially some performance enhancement by insulating the intake from the hot engine). I would grind 1 mm off each the manifold and the VVT anyway because it sucks when you get the manifold tightened down and then realize it is touching still (each time takes 2-3 hours to take off, grind, and replace, all very awkward and frustating, I think I did it like 4 times). Also, get the intake manifold stud kit from Turbophil as the kit includes at this time near worthless allen wrench bolts (there isnt enough room for a allen wrench!) Finally, hopefully there will be more complete directions then. A lot of stuff is just not in the current edition and you have to guess or wait for help from friends or forum (where/how to mount: air intake to rollover bar support, fuse boxes, dipstick, part of vapor return to throttle body; intake solenoid connections not discussed; VVTi rotation explanation inadequate; very rarely size of tool needed discussed; not nearly enough pictures; belt placement instructions absent). Make sure you take the clam off, only the insane and very experienced leave it on.
I havent turned mine on yet(just found out Im missing another part) but the kit does look professional. We are just early adopters and likely in a month the instructions will be vastly improved with the above changes (I would hope) and minimal additional hardware as above.
The customer support is top notch.
