    Just look at the instructions Jarret gave Red devil and you should be able to do the prop. he list just about every tool you will need.
    Riva sends pretty good instructions with their kits also guys on here are a lot of help also.
    Getting the stock air intake out probably toughest part it can be a bitch to get out. If you have done any mods before it should be about a four hour job if these are your first it could take longer.

    Hey mac,

    I have my GTX modded like crazy and did every one of them myself with the exception of the impeller. For some reason it always intimidated me but, Jarrett's instructions are quite good and I did it with no prob.

    See the thread "Swapping out Impellers"

    The biggest bitch is installing power filter Use the zip tie method for securing the tube to the A bracket. Much easier

    There is a bracket that bolts to the front of the engine to hold front of filter. It has two small screws that hold the tube to this bracket they are very hard to get started so most just secure it with Ripties,chicken bands,tie wraps or whatever you want to call them.
    What I did was drill the holes on the bracket out a little and I was able to start the screws without to much trouble.

    Zip tieing the air intake tube to the mounting bracket is a good idea because 1) it's hard to thread those little mounting screws and 2) if you ever have to take the SC out, you have to move the air intake tube. To do so, you have to remove those little screws. It is far easier to clip the zip ties.

    Of course, doing this is even easier:
