turbo fins - take some tools along, i think small sockets will do, and a screwdriver or two. iirc most of the inake is held together by those metal band clamps, so yeah sockets or nut drivers. pull the tubes off and get a good look at the compressor wheel (fins/blades) check for chips and shaft play. the blades should be sharp, very little to no play and definitly no wheel to housing contact. its fairly normal to see a bit of oil in there from the CCV.
the airbox origionally had plastic screws holding the top down, they were a problem. be sure they are metal. if it has an aftermarket intake then dont worry about it.
i was a gasser guy before i came here. overwhelming at first, but these things are surprisingly simple.
