CAI install

If the UPS truck doesn't get lost, I'm putting on an S&B tomorrow. I am assuming that its a pretty easy deal, just unplug and unbolt the old one and slap on the new one, but you know what they say about "assuming". So is there anything special I should know? 15 minute or less job?

Probably a little more than 15 min. It's definately not an easy task to get the new box seated in there either. Just gotta take your time and be patient.

Heat the boots up a little and put a little grease on the three prongs that secure the intake into the factory gromets. People make it sound alot worse that it is. I have ran AFE's on alot of trucks but my last three I have used S&B and will stay with them.

I have ran S&B in the past, and this time around, I can tell you this system they built for our trucks suck. I had my stock system off in about 5 minutes. 3 hours later I was still trying to get the new system installed (trying to get the box to seat properly was the hardest part). Not to mention you have to take the thing a part to clean the filter. I was not at all impressed.
