The front rail bolt whipped my ***. I wish I would've had the square socket.

Id say get the square socket or one of those extreme access type sockets that will fit just about any head. Got mine from lowes. But agreed the front plug was a huge pia. Lots of pb blaster and swearing.

The front nut is inbetween the aih relay and hpop reservoir/fuel bowl. Not a lot of room.

After fighting for a while I moved the bracket with the compressor out off the way. A whole easier to get that screw then.

I had more trouble getting the new fitting on than the old fitting off.

Just be patient and you'll be fine

Also, don't be stupid like me and do it when the motor is hot.

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

OK, so I should order the socket, Was there any notice in drive ability or idle with this mod? I did the hutch mod...I didn't notice smoother idle or anything.

I noticed literally no positive difference, but I had a few problems afterwards.
Don't get me wrong, it's a well made product and the majority of people are really happy with it, but I wouldn't spend that money on it again.

Thanks Joel! Really motivating me to install this piece sitting in the garage.
