you'll need more than just a torx wrench and screw drivers, theres a bolt on the top of it that holds it in place :(. i hate not having tools.

It also helps to remove the flat plastic piece that runs between the spoiler and the front of the subframe.

I agree, taking off the undertray helps a lot, its very hard without doing that step.

It's super simple, but make your life easier and take the under panel off of the bottom of the car before you get started. the entire process took me 10 min.

got mine installed today, some tips for everyone going to do it:
1. Get a new 3" clamp. It will be all of like $3 at any hardware store and I promise it'll be easier than trying to deal with the current one.
2. When putting the new snorkel on, do the bottom end first. I had a bit of trouble doing it the other way.
3. Get a friend to help. They don't need to be knowledgeable but having someone to help pull the snorkel through and put the bottom guard back was invaluable.

As for what the butt dyno says, normal driving I don't notice a difference but in sport mode I think it sounds richer and i feel a hint more oomph overall.
