Based on your install, I decided to get one - so pulled the trigger a few minutes ago.  Every time I watch YouTube videos of what these cars are capable of, I am blown away.  The work I had to do back in the day to get any decent performance out of my 74 Celica GT was painful compared to a Kappa.  Got to hand it to GM on this, they really designed beast engines for the kappa line.

and if you have a stock airbox, you must disconnect the breather hose by the turbo to the airbox or you will snap off the plastic tip that it connects to.

Does that apply if you have a GM CAI?  Wish I lived closer to DDM.

BTW, thanks for posting the vids.

Chop,  getting over to DDM would be great but if you can't the install really is not difficult. A little maneuvering and its done.  Don't shy away from doing it yourself.
This weekend I'm installing my DDM brace bundle.  I'm sure it will take longer for the ProBeam than the cat. Good luck.

What size wrench/sockets did you have to use? I think I have everything I need, just curious if any were deep well.
