Me and a buddy installed one of these on his 03 Z71 ECSB yesterday and it was a PITA. Has anyone else had a hard time installing one of these?

Wasn't too bad of an install, a few of those bolts irritated me but I've done a LOT worse...like the catless uppipe on my WRX for instance :D

Is the heat shield supposed to come in the shape of a box? The one we got was almost flat.

The only prob that I had was that rubber connector going to the throttle body it didn't fit on the tube I had to do a little man handling and some trimming.

I had a heck of a time getting the rubber moulding on the heatshield ... I had to cut the metal grove at the corners to make it turn
