You are going to need a high quality battery charger. What ever you do don't skip out and buy a cheap one because if you battery is not maintained a the correct voltage during the download process it will screw up you ECU. You need to get a battery charger with a minimum 10 amp charge setting if you don't have DRL's (daytime running lights). If you do have DRL's then you need to get a charger with a minimum of a 20 amp setting. Im my case I could not find a charger with a minumum 20 amp setting so what I did was take was unplug the headlights. I was a little worried at first about doing this but it all worked out fine. Other than that just follow the instructions that are provided with your shark injector. Good luck!!!

Oh and if you need any help I would be more than happy to give you a hand.

the software is a really easy install.. i have doen ti twice. hook-up a 20 amp or so battrery charger to amintain voltage and follow the 4-5 steps that the software comes with. it is really simple to do and you shouldnt be owrried to do it yourself..it tkaes maybe 20 mins max and the smile you get when its installed is worth the 20 mins =)

If you do it yourself Bob and still need help pm me, we can exchange numbers and walk you through it. It shouldn't be a problem though I did mine about a week ago and it was a breeze.

A quality charger is a must!!! I took my trunk apart and hooked it to my battery, not the jumper posts. Left it on 20amps. Let it charge for a few minutes before starting.
