I could have made something with a lot less pages and pictures printed and STILL be far easier to follow.

Also the metal bracket you're supposed to support the stock power-steering pump line with as well as the intake pipe connection joint (with the rubber / vibration eliminator piece)... the stock screw/washer that is supposed to be on the left side (closest to the front of the car) would not have enough threads to catch on. I had to grind down that metal piece (L bracket part) that goes against the shock tower between the power steering pump line bracket.

Took me all in all about 2 hours to do it. If I was going to re-do it again, it would take probably 20 minutes now knowing what needs to be done to make things as smooth sailing as possible.
the extra weld or material you have to grind down around the protruding threaded stud is only on some of the cars - not all the e90/e92s will have this issue. Just take a dremel to it and be careful. It'll take a couple of minutes and voila.

I did not have this problem....and I would think they would look into this before selling this product.... weird

It's actually from the welding of the pieces from the BMW Factory. Some of the the welds are more precise and some others have a little leftover, thusly leaving a little access of material there. We really have no control over it, it's just the cars came that way!!

Does anyone have a picture of this area where you might need to dremel? How do you know if you need to? I'm considering the Injen Intake but don't want to go through the trouble of grinding that part down.
