powerbox install much harder than thought

today i installed my powerbox and it took about 3 hours. I felt the instructions were a bit confusing and some of the colors were wrong that were mentions in the PDF file. After the struggle getting the large and small back in the unit for about 30min, the install was succesful and I can feel a better pull with the manual 6SPEED.

I have a six speed as well and it made a pretty big difference. I didn't think the install was hard however
