    Just a few little tips.

    90 degree needlenose make removing the oem hose clamps much easier in many cases.

    Make sure the reverse cable ends up on the left side of the IC fittings.

    Make sure you put tape around the inside edge of the hull, particularly around the intake and front.

    Prior to starting stuff shop towels down around where the hull meets the engine on the intake side. This helps in case something is dropped.

    I have found that placing the I/C into a vise helps with stability when installing the C Clamp for the BOV. A 90 degree C Clamp Plier is what you want for this. Use shop towels to protect the finish and little pressure is needed or you will possibly damage (bend) the I/C tube.

    When installing the new bracket if one of the bolts to the engine does not seem to want to go in make sure the shim at the bottom bolt location is remove. This can cause the bolt to not line up. (I had this issue).

    When reinstalling the oil filler tube I used some 1211 around the base of the oil tube. There is an o-ring, but I added some in the other areas just in case. Don't get it on the o-ring or in the hole on the block!

    Wetting the silicon hose makes sliding the other parts in easier.

    So I guess if the R&D multiport adapter is installed then there's no need to tap the intake manifold? Or does the HKS BOV require it's own dedicated operating line?

    Pretty involved install.

    Side note. Could one get away with using one of the blocked off bypass fittings on the side rather than drilling a hole near the grab handle for a new one??
