    The boost pipe bolts onto the rear of the plastic lock carrier with a single M6 stud on each side, then the 6 main bolts (big torx things) go thru the bumper shocks, lock carrier and boost pipe all together and into the chassis rails.

    Dont happen to have the cylinder head from the old engine do ya?
