1. how hard is it to install my self?
Not too bad, this should help... we wrote a little mini-guide for what to do right after purchasing the unit: http://www.p3cars.com/2009/07/suppor...ducts-procede/

We suggest one, but its not a must... once you have it though, you will wonder how you ever did without it... its so easy to see exactly what your car is boosting, know exactly what boost map you are in, etc.

There is a process that only the PROcede does that clears all engine codes. You turn on the ignition, hold the pedal to the floor for a few seconds, then release, a check engine light will appear, do this again, and all codes are cleaer. Uninstall the unit and its like nothing was ever there!

Yes, intakes are good for any tune running higher boost, as this becomes a choke point.

FMIC would be a great next step.
