you basically turn the diverter value. it has a gray tab looking thing, turn the opposite way and it will go loose. and then pull

Hah, ya those DVs are a super biatch to remove lol. I used a towel to help me get grip...

The bad news is that is just the beginning of your challenges installing that chargepipe lol! I installed mine last week and it can be taxing. Anyhow, I subscribed to this thread... if you run into any problems just post em here and I'll see if I can help.

Good luck!

charge pipe install is not that bad. But just make sure you get that on tight as it may slip off the intake manifold

I installed the charge pipe and everything is real tight. I started to pull it and wiggle it and nothing moves . I do have a quick question could I turn the BOV? hose that it came with was a little short so I just turned the BOV to the opposite direction. Should I be able to turn it like that with out tightening anything?

The BoV is connected to the chargepipe by an aluminum clamp. You can tighten that and it will tighten up the BoV. It's probably not an issue as is however.
