I purchased a Boomba short shift bracket, and decided to do a write up on the install. In the box came the shift bracket and hardware, color instructions, 2 stickers, and an awesome aluminum Boomba bottle opener (to uncap your beer when your finished). Start the install by unplugging your MAF sensor, just pull the red tab out and push the detent down, and pull off sensor. Next, the air filter box needs to come out, start by loosening the 4 T25 torx screws around the air filter box, they will stay in the housing unless you turn them all the way out. This hose needs to be removed, the green part is the lock, simple pry the green lock up, I used my fingers only, once it's up, the hose pulls off the intake tube. Lift the top portion of the filter housing, and remove the air filter. The intake tube removal is next, loosen the 9/32 hex hose clamp, you can use a flat head screwdriver, but the socket was easier. Once loose the intake hose will pull off of the pipe and you can maneuver it out of the engine bay. The lower air box housing removal is next, I used a plastic scraper to pry the snorkel off, then lift the whole box out, it takes a small amount of force, but it's pretty easy. Now for the fun, the shift linkage has to be removed from the factory shift lever, it's easy, I used a small pry bar, but a large flat blade would have easily worked, put the pry bar under the end link, and pry it up, then push the linkage back out of the way. Now, lay the bracket over the factory lever, the single bolt side, goes toward the back of the car. The hole in the bracket will sit on the factory ball. Hint, put the bolts through the bracket first, just don't drop them. I also applied blue loctite to the threads, just for extra security. Now, the back plate needs to go on, this is a little tricky, there is a small hole on the back plate, this goes under the Boomba brackets ball stud, if you try to install it wrong, it won't line up. The Boomba instructions explain this too. Continue to next post for the rest.
