I don't have any pictures of mine right now but if you print this out it includes the templates at the end that show you how much is needed to be cut from the core support.
Banks IC install sheet
-install the boots to the IC first, not the pipes
- be mindful of how you position your clamps. Sucks to install everything and then go for final torque and the clamp would be a lot easier to get to if it were flipped
-Banks doesn't say to (I feel they compensate for this in their tuning) but move the MAP line to the boost port on the hot pipe and plug the old MAP port.
-I didn't need to cut my hood latch support like it says in the instructions but noticed after I had cut it. Try to assemble/mock first before cutting. Makes for a stronger latch support.
-both of my pipes needed to be cut down to fit right
-be very careful when bending the A/C line and the PS line to fit the hot side pipe. Use a piece of 5/8" ID rubber hose ziptied over the A/C lines to prevent rubbing
-cutting with a fine toothed saws-all is fine....but so is using a torch
-it's not very often that you have the front end apart. Do consider replacing the LPOP, water pump, and trans cooler (if you have a Auto) at the same time. For that matter look at your headlights and consider that this is the time to upgrade/replace them. Fix leaks while you have easy access
-have four of these in the correct sizes of the two Rad hoses and the two Auto cooler lines: Hose Pinch Pliers
-getting the stone guard off the front end requires about 2 feet of extensions of you go at it from the wheel well
- I installed mine at the same time as the Banks 1.0 housing and Banks exhaust so the whole install took 2 days
............that's all I can think of at the moment. Good Luck!
