    Im going to get some axle stands tonight and fit these on wednesday.

    Ive got the guide for the TIP, but are the jetex and DV just direct replacements?

    Is there any plugs that plug into the airbox or are they all in the MAF?

    Likewise with the DV is it just a case of popping the OEM out and popping the forge in?

    Cheers.

    my jetex filter just went straight on to my maf with the hose clip that was supplied very easy to fit. If your fitting a tip at same time even easier as all the parts will be out the way ready for it.

    only wire will be connected to the maf so nothing to worry about in the airbox at all

    Yes mate both are a direct swap, if you get stuck with it then pop me a PM and I will give you my number just in case.

    You will need to unplug the igntion amp from the airbox, personally I have zip tied mine to the airbox mount.

    All straight forward stuff though :)

    It is worth getting underneith, one person on top pushing down, one person on top pushing across and one person underneith tightening the clip and making sure it doesnt fall off...

    Like this -

    If you pull a face like this and do yor finest merekat impression it helps too -

    And it should end up like this -

    Sorry, but I wouldn't do it alone in the dark with a torch. :(

    Two man job comfortably or a monster pain in the arse on your own.

    fitting the TIP is easy by your self. did mine using the coach pit at work, quick simple job. just put a bit of lube to help it slip over the turbo easier
