put a bucket under your pet**** on your radiator and drain the coolant until your degas bottle is empty. unhook the hoses going to it and i usually take my intake off. then there are bolts on the back and front of the ficm. make sure when you try to take the plugs off that you squeeze both sides of the connector. sometimes its hard to see. when you put the other one in make sure you dont damage the points on the connections and make sure you hear you get the connectors all the way on. you gotta push pretty hard. put it all back together and enjoy.

Isnt there enough hose on the degas bottle that you could just un-bolt it and set it out of the way??

I just removed the 2 pieces of the intake closest to the turbo and reached back there, it was pretty easy. It was really worth it, Eric is a great guy he got it back to me real quick and I am very happy I had it done.
