It's quite easy. Even a stock intake removal is easy so I wouldn't let that deter anyone if they dont run DCI's yet.
All you have to do is remove the C Clip on at the throttle body, unplug the Tmap sensor. Unlock the stock diverter valves.
Take out on Torx bolt and loosen one clamp and it's out.
If you get an aftermarket charge pipe make sure you transfer over the O -ring if you get an aftermarket pipe that uses a C clip, i.e. Evolution Racewerks.
