Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour
January 22, 2014
Great on Tuned engine...BBK owner's, beware!
The install simple, but the bolts (10mm, not 8mm like instructions say) were so tight around my BBK throttle body that I had to use a wrench like a screwdriver, making 1/4 turns max! It took WAY to long to install for having 4 bolts! The BBK owner's will be upset because of this flaw, since they have less room around the bolts than the Ford TB, they use allen screws. So you can use them like a screwdriver and screw them on in seconds. One of my bolts could not go on fully (bottom left) since I could not get torque with the wrench in a twisting motion, so modification was needed. I will still have to get allen topped bolts so I won't have issues with this in the future.
With that sad install and still a need to replace the bolts....the car went completely crazy! If that was only 10hp/tq, I only need 10 more to get into the 11's with just bolt-ons! It's scary when you bunch it at 30mph, spins, and hits second sideways! Tires will be ordered sooner than expected.....bolts first though!!!
