    Yes I do.

    It is similar to the "turkey baster" but a squeeze bottle that I jam the end of into the brass bleed screw location.

    I am able to bleed out a little more air and "top it off" without the stuff going all over.

    Any clear one will work.

    Take your time and do it right. Front is worth taking off. I did mine with only 1k on the clock. The hardest part is all the cussing you will do getting the crank bolt to let go without breaking your breaker bar and putting a dent in your fender. It needs a hump hose at the air box otherwise the torque will pull the cheapo smooth hose off and dust motor..

    .. and the sweet sweet sound is worth the trouble... Music

    and it's Perdy too...

    I assume that it's the passenger side washer arm that we're grinding because that one could have a clearance issue with the new manifold? I don't think it's that clear in the instructions but my common sense says passenger side.

    Yes, passenger side right over the maggie.

    Here is a link for the manifold connecting hose:

    Agreed. Are you still working on anything?


    Also, here's a better way to route the intercooler coolant flow (NOTE: You have to reverse orientation of the HEX.) and the second pic is how I purged the system of air bubbles (crude, but hey! ... it worked!):

    Oh, and btw, if you reverse the HEX orientation, you'll have to make brackets to accommodate mounting it.

    So as to provide a measure of stealth when you pull behind someone, you may want to subdue the the glare of that bright aluminum heat exchanger peeking out from behind your grill.

    Rick emailed me a file with the V, I printed it out, cut it out, then masked off the front of the HEX before spray painting it black.

    Of course, Rick was much more elaborate with his.

    Trouble is, painting it hides the HEX from view alright, but you can't see the V at all.

    Re: Everything I ever wanted to know about a Maggie,,,and your gonna tell me!!!

    It was a couple years ago that I installed the s/c. This thread brought back some memories.

    The install is very easy if you have any mechanical ability at all

    The only time you really need a second set of hands is setting the unit. If you're built like Micheal Phelps then maybe you you can set it yourself.

    Pick up a 2 foot piece of inch and a half steel pipe - you'll need a cheater.

    The rad for the intercooler does not fit exactly as the instructions say - so be prepared to make very minor mod.

    And if I was doing it again, I'd paint the sides of the new rad black. It's really not the reflection that gives you away, it's the whine of the maggie and rumble of the exhaust. But I don't like the glare through the mesh.

    I have two PCM's - the original with the Magnusson modified tune and one with the Stealth tune. I didn't know if the Stealth tune would pass state emissions testing. A true waste of time and money since last time I left the Rick modified PCM in during testing and the car passed.

    Last - enjoy the install. It's easy and fun. And the sense of accomplishment and thrill of the ride makes it worthwhile.

    Can you explain why that's a better orientation for the heat exchanger? Why wouldn't you want the coolant going right from the hex to the intercooler instead of passing through the hex after running through the intercooler?

    It's safe to just spray the thing? You just tape off the hose connections and the rest is ok to spray?
