    on the drivers side behind the intake there's an oil pressure sending unit. The brake booster hose runs behind it. I can tell you to be extremely careful or you'll break it but instead I'm just going to tell you to buy a new one before hand because you're gonna break it. ~$20 for the sending unit and the list of people that have broken that doing an intake swap is as long as my leg.....and I'm also on that list. Other than that it'll be the easiest intake swap you'll ever do.

    Thank, i've done a few things to mine, cold air intake, posi unit w / 410. Corsa exhaust w / y pipe. It's a 2000 w/ 17k miles on it. Never seen rain or snow. Always garaged. I love it. Looking @ going to new york to buy a white ws6 auto. Low miles. Nice to talk w/ people that have already done the work before proceeding

    The most common problem is the oil pressure sensor Orion mentioned. I have busted 2 on various fbodies. Just unhook the hose from the master cylinder and usually you don't end up breaking the sensor.
