This intake was relatively easy to install (08 STi). The instructions could have been a bit more clear because they don't always tell which nuts to tighten. I had to take out the whole system when I was almost done because a gromet hadn't been secured properly. It's a tight fit to get into position and you have to move it around quite a bit. Careful not to damage the filter element in the process. I would also get the water pre-filter element and put it on first if I had to do it again. I didn't, so I'll just wait until I have to clean it in 20k miles in order to do that. It's also oil-free so you don't have to worry about cleaning it every 5k miles like some other brands. Also the heat shield helps keep the intake air relatively cooler than the engine bay. Don't forget that you need to use a Cobb AP map for the AEM intake if your ECU is re-flashed. Great product, performs very well. Love the sound.
