Will, You can do the install yourself. Like I said, just be patient when you do it. Isnt Max in Texas? I know there must be more turbo v-rods in Texas than up here. Call or e-mail me with any questions and I will try to answer them.
As I said the coolant line splice is just a section of radiator hose that you can get at any auto parts store. I welded up my pipe when I sectioned mine (after replacing the original that had a hole rubbed init) If you choose to go this welded route let me know and I will detail how and where I welded mine. I can also send you my T-Max map that James tuned for me.
I will answer you as quickly as my crappy phone service will allow. At this time e-mail is a better bet.
If you know anyone who does there own mechanic work they can give you a hand. Its all bolt on stuff.
