I have mixed reactions to this.
The product seems of good quality and in principle ideal, however the intake manifold support bracket had to be removed to fit the relocation filter plate to the engine. Not keen on taking these things away, if manufaturers deemed important, they should stay!! There was no fitting instructions, so garage wasted time fitting costing me money. Siting the parts also was left up to fitters discretion, I am now wishing things were sited differently. The pipes to the oil cooler seem in an awkward place, tied over the top (drivers side) of the radiator. There is no drain plug on the oil cooler, so when I come to change the oil there will always be old oil in the piping and cooler that cannot be drained away. I know my biggest gripe here is with the fitting/location of various bits but this still part of the whole products value. No good having a great product if after fitting it will cause other issues.
On this basis, wish I hadn\'t spent all this money on this kit and bought the Polyurethane Bushes.

Editors Note: I can see absolutely no reason to have to remove the inlet manifold brace. Yes, it helps to move it out of the way for fitting, but should be refitted afterwards!
