Hopefully the BOV came with instructions! Go to Sears and buy a 10mm wratcheting box wrench. It's not entirely necessary, but it makes the job WAY easier on you. Better yet, but a set in STD and metric. After I bought the 10mm wrench I liked it so much I did just that.

Make sure that the oil line to the turbo isn't touching the bolt head when you're done. You wouldn't want vibation to eat through the oil line.

The spark plug wires are easy. Do them one at a time so you don't accidently put the wires on wrong (hard to do with just the 4 cylinders but possible).

Use dielectric grease in the terminals for better contact and ease of removal later. You can get that from your local auto parts store if it didn't come with the wires. Mine did not.

I just replaced my wires with MSD 8.5 wires, and re-gapped the plugs. I had misfire problems from the stock wires. I have Denso Iridiums on the way, but I was too impatient to wait for them. It's running so well now that I doubt there would be much difference with the new plugs.

Do the BOV when the car is cold. The conversion kit should have come with instructions unless you got it 2nd hand. You can do a search here and find lots of info on the install.
