Just wondering if anyone had any first-hand experience installing one of these kits? Does the kit come with any installation instructions? Photos? How many hours to do the install and can it be done with jackstands?

Yes, yes, yes, around 40 (full week), and yes.

Good question. I was wanting to know this myself. So, you can do it yourself. Hmmm. Did you end up getting one of these Tanglewood? If so, did I miss a thread with your opinions on it?

It takes 40 hours to install this kit?!! :confused:
Wow, that's a long time.

40 hours would be a week. There is a lot of prep work. Not too bad, just time consuming. This is something that you want to take your time with. Plus you have to figure time to upgrade fuel pump/battery re-location. Time ads up quick man.

I've been working on mine a bit here and there. One of the issues that we are spending time with is sorting out the differences between a GTO and a Monaro. Some piping changes/mods...

There is a good bit of work to install a twin turbo in ANY configuration. Performance is generally considered worth it. I have no doubt it will be worth the time and fussing.
