can someone please tell me the tools needed to install my replacement dinan filter throught the front wheel well?

thanks!

also, i see that the bracket that holds the filter to the tube is above the support plate. Is that easy to get to from the fender well?

all you need is a screwdriver.
theres like 3 or 4 screws you have to remove from the wheel well that will give you access to your filter.
once you have it open, its no problem getting to the clamp that holds the filter to the tube.

anyone have pics of the front fender well removed (preferable with a dinan intake)? I'm trying to figure out if there will be enough room to get to the 8mm screws holding the filter support plate. I really want to remvoe this thing without taking off my front bumper!

just take the front bumper off, it only takes like 20 minutes to do without a lift, those little 8 mm bolts are a pain to get off if you wheels are straight, and getting the fender well to line up properly and lock in will be a pain w/o it off too, just did it today actually, let me know if u have a question...
