      Figured I'd chime in here since I've gone through a few intakes now over the years I've owned the car and now have one I'm really happy with.

      Spotted 11/28/14 in the morning at Bill's Cafe in San Jose on Bascom and Naglee.

      I think you misunderstood, it's not the total mileage of the car that matters, it's the mileage put on the cluster after it's been coded. I think I remember Pete saying something about this. You...

      Just pull it straight off and you won't break anything. Yes, it takes some effort. Part of the reason is likely that it's still under vacuum.

      Strange, I had a CEL with mine within 50 minutes of driving with the TBE on and the Stage 1+ tune. Couldn't get the Stage 2+ tune done for a couple of days after having it installed.
