1. Purchase gasoline
2. Pour said liquid within engine bay
3. Aquire your favorite fire creating device
4. Apply fire creating device to the above liquid
5. Smile as the f0cker burns

I will tell you right now, don't ever think you should change anything involving taking of the intake manifold and TGV system. What was to be a positive session of take apart and install of an APS Turbo Inlet Pipe on my STi on Saturday for better breating engine turned into a nightmare.

Thanks to a crew of Suby guys in the local area, we got my b!tch back together OEM. It was 8+ hours on Sunday to get this crap back together without the APS inlet pipe.

First off, I will give APS a big

Second, that has got to be the biggest pain in the ass install I have ever attempted in my life. I am fairly certain that doing timing chains on a VR6 is easier

I've heard bad things about that too, although I've never actually attempted said install.

I enjoy white-hot pain, but I'm not a masochist....Maybe let the motor cool down next time..LOL (That should have been step 1)
