What did you guys use to remove hose clamp that holds intake pipe? Bolt looks like kinda mix between Torx and Hex. I can see more, it is facing firewall. Got usuall hex/flat screwdriver clamp to replace it with.

Daytona500 and I think maybe Gigante can help, maybe shoot them a PM. Plenty of others but these are two that come to mind and I know Daytona did this mod.

7mm socket - easiest if mounted on a flex 1/4" drive.

Thanks guys, I'm halfway there. Will finish tomrw. I thought I will be able to do it without battery tray removal, but you have to in order to pull air hose off. So got that clamp and hose done, and two top nuts on TB. Cleaned PCV valve while there, felt little sticky, now ball rolls freely inside if I shake it. (Doing red silicone hose kit install too)

I can't remember the specifics but after removing the tray it is a pretty easy install. Just be careful not to over tighten the bolts and make sure the ring gasket is in place. Where did you get a polished unit? Or did you polish it yourself?

Where did you get a polished unit? Or did you polish it yourself? some guy was selling his mods because he was getting rid of his ride. Got HiDs and TB from him for $280. Modern performance sells them originally.

When I think polished, I think shiny on the outside. Do you just mean their ported model?
