Yup, you already have the larger injectors, so PCM is only difference. Only probelems with install of this and BOV are banged knuckles getting to everything.

Was in your area about 2 weeks ago, Scottsdale, on business, aerospace stuff, stayed at the Chaparral Suites nice area.

There is only 1 more DC3 in the Toronto Canada area.

Any idea on the cost for the PCM or do I buy the whole kit and just keep the injectors for future?

I kit is specific to the model/year of the car. The 04 kit does not get injectors.
install will take about 30 minutes using a 10 mm socket & wrench. & a 10 mm wrench for the battery.

I did it in the parking lot of six flags using tools borrowed rorm the DC engineers... you should have seen the faces of the small crowd watching me do it. Some thought I was nut's... some thought it was awesome.

Heck, I left some serious rubber in the back of the lot when I did my test drive [8)]

Car runs great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

I see your car is an autostick, any idea on the HP drop due to the automatic, I have a 5 speed with hurst short throw stick.

Any tips on the install of the BOV or have you installed one before.

Still feeling my way around the car and engine etc,

Remove your air box and get your car on stands. I used a 10 mm on 1/4 drive rachet from above car to get two of the 3 bolts on the diaphragm/flange the new Bov attaches to. Had to use a 10mm box/combination to get the 3rd difficult bolt out from below. It isnt bad, maybe a 1/2 hr job max.

In regards to HP, mine is 03 5spd with stage 1. I dynoed it and got
225 HP and 252 TQ to wheels on dynojet. Do your pulls in 4th gear. I tried in 3rd but puter didnt like it. Also make sure you shut off AC. If not you will loose 5 HP with AC on.
