    After holding the Gen 2 cooler in my hands and spending plenty of time on the SHO platform my advice is below

    I found it real easy to connect the couplers to the throttle body by leaning up against the starboard side of the ski and reaching my hands up and under the ic and intake manifold. Kinda like a bear hug. Hope this makes sense and helps. I for one found it a easy install.

    I took off my valve cover to ease the installation, thats not stated in the instructions. Also check out that the ic intake pipe dont touch the ribbet up top of the hull and there is a good gap because this can cause the ic pipe to wear when the engine moves. Good luck!!

    Its one of those things that once it finally slides in, you realize it does fit! Remember, rotation is your friend. You may get it first time in, took me 1 hour, second time 2 minutes, 3rd time 30 minutes,sigh.
