Well, I removed the front grills and put the scoops in.

This was super easy. I used the trick of getting the car warmed up, and used two hands and wiggle/pull the grills out. Was easy, no hard pulling, snapping or breaking anything. This saved hours of trying to remove the front bumper. With just the grills removed it was super simple to install to get the scoops in.

Factory airbox had a screw in the back that wasn't super easy to remove like the rest. Had to get a swivel and where some would say finagle, I would say I used some finesse to get that removed.

Once that was done, everything was pretty straight forward and fairly easy. I was able to guide the fiancÚ on what to do and she made it happen.
