    MauiV- as for the template I do not think anyone want mine!!! haha.... Randy sent me some pics and was very helpful, but his hoses were run completely different than mine, so I do not think we could have a universal template for the maggie install.

    Special thanks to Randy and Tom for the help. This MOD was a complete pain in the a$$!! All in all it was worth it!! If you notice the covers sitting wrong dont pay any attention because they aren’t crooked.. lol
    Looks good. Was the hard part the cutting, or moving the hoses? Did you have to disconnect the fuel line? Hate doing that. That's why I bought Heavys fire extinguisher bracket. Doesn't look like you had to cut that much more than a stocker.

    The hard part was figuring out where to cut then how to cut it then installing it around all the clutter, so I guess that means just about everything was hard. If I lined it up from hardest to easiest it would look like this:

    1. figuring out where to cut and not screwing it up (and I did)

    2. placing them in place around everything, then finding what else needs to be cut (like 10 times)

    3. the actual cutting itself (trying to make it look decent and straight)

    4. taking pictures for you guys and uploading!!


    I did have to remove the "rap around" maggie fuel line that is over the top along with all of the easy to remove hoses connecting to the TB and also the inner cooler hose on the passanger side of maggie.

    As for the amount of cutting don't be fooled, there was a lot. On the passanger side if you look hard I removed almost the whole "maggie fuel rail only" cover.. in other words, the lip that wraps around the maggie fuel rail is basically cut off except for a tiny bit(had problems with rubbing the CFiber pulley shaft). Cut around the rap around maggie fuel line. Cut around the whole fuel system coming from the fuel pump. Cut around the oil dip stick. Cut around some wiring harness running along the finderwell in the engine bay, and cut around two other lines running over the top of maggie.

    As for the drive side cutting. it wasnt as bad but bad enough to not want to ever do it again!! but.. Cut around the rap around fuel line and Cut back the lip that covers the fuel rail system as I did on the passenger side.. I had to re route a couple of hoses on that side, after I unplugged all of them. I did not remove the fuel line on this side. If you look hard enough you can see that the driver side does not come as forward(meaning towards the front bumper) as the passenger side.. (one of my more screwed up mistakes)

    I hope this make since.. It's very hard to explain.

    99% of its done. I tried to mount the tank under the intercooler last night but it seems that the mounts on the tank are to far to the drivers side. The tank hits the washer bottle before you even get close to the mount. I was able to angle them and get them in but its not right. I need to look into that a little more. It was 10:30 last night when I hung it. Wait4me has my pcm to flash my vin into it and it should be rolling after that. I was going to paint the engine and blower but I got to impatient. lol I just want to drive the damn thing. Its been 7 months!

    I've got some pics I'll post. Give me a few.
