    Very simple install. I'd say, maybe 30 minutes, tops.

    I"m dropping my KOUP off at Best Buy for some Kenwood speakers and a Kenwood amp install - I'll post up something when the install is done. All in the rear side panels of course.

    If you are worried about the CAI, just get the Short Ram version. Temps are not an issue at all with your intercooler and you'll still get the power

    I hope they do good job.

    Best Buy is HALF the price of most installers around here. I was receiving quotes for $400 - $500 for RockFord fosgate installed and $400+ for Kenwood, Kicker, Clarion, Sony.
    Audio Express told me they were a "high end shop" when I told the dude the equipment was for a KIA so I left.

    Moron...

    I know they are inexpensive and I am not implying that they will not deliver, but I know that everyone can mess it up. I hope for you they know their stuff.

    Snapped a few pics of the install. If you'd like anything specific and up close just ask. I have JBL GTO 609C components in the front and JBL GTO 629 coaxials in the rear. Alpine MRP m500 amp running a Rockford Fosgate Punch sub. Amp is mounted on rear left seat and seat can still be folded. Still leaves room for my golf clubs on the other side. Loud and punches, glad I didn't go with 2 ten or twelve inch subs.

    Welcome!
    Thanks for the info! I'm just going to man up and get the CAI. If it's too loud I'll just turn my music up! Im also looking at shifter bushings. I can't figure out how to get past the air ducts in the center console. Took a peek the other day and couldn't completely remove them. Thanks again!
