    You could install it, but with the weather being how its been here, it might not open properly. It will probably freeze shut right now. The high is suppose to stay in the 20's today. I HATE WINTER.

    Me To I hate the winter. That's the only thing I am worried about is it freezing shut. Do you think it will be ok to have it installed anyway because I can't wait to hear how it sounds.

    Don't see why not. I hardly ever open mine (broke so it's manual now) in winter cause it dumps under the rear seat and easy for the authorities to see the condensation on startup/cooler days. Even though no emissions here in Florida, don't think it's legal to dump it before the muffler, exhaust is supposed to exit somewhere outside the perimeter of the car for safety reasons.

    Yeah, you can install now. Its just cold out. It might freeze from sitting out overnight, but once the pipes heat up from the exhaust, it should operate fine.

    Wiring is easy, just post up if you have any questions. Bring the electric portion with you when you get it welded in to be sure they get the orientation right.

    Thinking that's how I eventually broke the motor portion off mine on a hard launch - hit somewhere on the bottom of the car...

    Yeah, make sure to have them angle it down a little bit to give you room for the motor. I would take just the motor with you so they can put it on the cutout and see how to angle it.
    Wiring it is pretty straightforward. I took my passenger seat out and ran it under the carpet. You can get a spade connector and hook it into the fuse box. What kind of switch did you get? My McCord came with a choice of light on at open, light on at closed, or light on in between. I chose the in between because that'll tell you when it's completely open and completely closed with 1 light.
