save your $$$ and do the DIY tymar intake.

As far as the bolt you are speaking of....its a PITA!!!!! I used a distrbutor wrench on mine, after letting it soak awhile with penatrating liquid (pb blaster/ wd-40 etc) sprayed on it. The up pipe bolts on the passenger side are also a pain and time consumming. With 2 people, 1 up top, guiding you, and yourself laying under the truck with a rachet and sevral extensions, you can get the drivers side up pipe bolts...

Yank the turbo pedistol and delete the expv acuator rod. Look for the the mod in the 7.3 foroums, its pretty straight foward. I also removed the butterfly in the exbp housing. Drill the 2 riviots out, remove buterfly, knock the rod out, find a freeze plug and knock into the open hole. Just my 2 cents worth...less to give you problems later on.
