    Well that stuff happens. If one of my friends broke something on my car that we was working on, I wouldnt ask him to replace it b/c its just a car and im not a jackass.

    If your that uptight about it I prob wouldnt even of helped ya. If you was paying him to fix it and he broke it, Ya then I can see him replacing it. But Free help isnt always free.

    Sounds like you have an attitude problem to go with it. If I was him I prob wouldnt help you on anything else.

    Well see thats a whole new side of the story, You should have said that b/f I raped your case!! LOL, This sounds more like a employee vs a friend. My friends come and go as they please and don't complain about the work we get into. They also help for free as I help them for free. Money to me is nothing when it comes to helping out people. I guess sometimes Im too gental. As I just Built and installed a 383 stroker in my buddies trans am. 3 weeks and about 90 + Hrs of HARD labor for me. I never complained nor charged him. Guess he saved 1200+ $'s by my help. To me thats a friend. IMO

    Thanks for the props Josh, one tip to avoid breaking the sensor is taking off the booster vacuum hose from the booster and feeding it through as you pull out on the intake.

    ya that is what i found out... sucks bad... oh well... i can feel the POWER... slightly but i can feel it more responsive and the intake ports are just a little bit bigger... and it is a bigger in size
