Have you done the support mods?? Intake and exhaust?
Chip burned for your truck?
Other than that take your time and dont have the keys anywhere near the truck till your done. Also don't overclean the contacts.

I have a cold air intake installed and a new down pipe in the mail. One the legends from Coalhill will re-flash it for me.

its nothing really to install, you have to disconect your batterys, of course, loosin your main wire harness to your comp. push the inner fender down a little to get it out pull it out threw the motor bay, be carfull, then take the small plastic cover off the back i also unscrewd the top piece of the comp. to make cleaning the connection easier, clean the conection up with a brillow pad they supply, be very careful dont brush it much but get it clean, i also used alc. pads to clean the dust and crap off, it works well burns the gunk off and it drys very fast, so do all that plug the chip into the connection, i put tap over the spot where the chip goes to keep dust and crap out and put it back in be carefull tighting the main wire harness you dont wanna mess that stuff up its very tuchy.

They are nothing to install a few quick things that have yet to be covered.. It is a must for you to have gauges. I don't care what anyone says or does believe me you don't realise how hot these things get and what you can do and its also good to monitor as well. After the gauges I would the intake and then exhaust and make sure it is burnt for the right PCM code as well.....

No need to unhook the batterys... just make damn sure the key is NOWHERE near the ignition. Not even within site, or smell range.

I got it in with relative ease. Getting the comp out was pain in the yangster! That dang will get you rolling coal with the big kids. I revise my last post with a legend from Lead Hill. Cary knows who I'm talking about. Pyro going in this weekend. Thanks for the input guys. Next to tackle the downpipe.

When I saw him run a 1/4 in 10 in an OBS I knew he was the cat to call.
