thanks, ***** ***** a few of these intakes the main thing i was looking for on the intake is special instructions if there are any due to it being crammed in this dang van Yell rear motor bolts are horrible to access! or do i just have to fight with it?

Expert:  Tims Auto Repair replied 1 year ago.

the lower intake isnt too bad after you remove the upper

you can leve the van in park and hand push the van forward,,and chuck the tires to hold it,,this will tilt the engine forard to give more room to work
