Can you share pics of where you plummed the injectors to?

Will do. Haven't gotten there yet but def will. All sorts of random house stuff I have to get done so I've been moving at a slow pace.

I'm still trying to figure out where I'm going to place my injectors as well. It doesn't seem like much room between the IC and TB. I thought about just drilling and tapping the intake as I don't want them before the IC. Wonder if anyone has tried a TB spacer for injection?

Mounted low level sensor and methanol line fitting from AEM tank to ProMeth tank. Mounted AEM pump on ProMeth tank. Ran wiring for pump and low level sensor to the trunk along with the methanol line.

Your wire labeling and loom is an OCD masterwork - very nice! Looks like your install is shaping up nicely and similar placement / runs as mine (abet you are doing the safest and most complex route vs my JB4 WMI setup - Kudos!)

There is room between the throttle body and the intercoolers. Way over-engineered fastening for the intercoolers. I just put one bolt back in each - would feel very comfortable with no bolts actually. Those are not going anywhere. Plus there is the benefit of the weight reduction!

That's a good little piece of info. I was looking at the couplers last night and you can't fit a human hair between the TB and IC. My current concern is how I'm going to get through the firewall. Once I make that happen the rest should be relatively easy.

@[email protected] - Thanks for the compliment. I take a lot of pride in my work and would like to create another solid resource for this install like @Ddnspider did.

I'm in the same boat. The AEM hardware is nice however they don't include a TON of hardware required to properly install their kit. It really pisses me off as including everything required almost doubles the cost. They advertise there's built in safety features but you need to purchase additional parts to utilize them. The nozzles are 1/8" NPT and are an absolute bitch to find adapters for so you can connect them to the silicone couplers. Called up AEM and they told me to order them off the Snow Performance website 馃ぃ Then you're looking at $700.00+ for install by a reputable shop and they wouldn't do nearly as good a job as I have. You're looking at about $1,500.00 to have this kit installed on our cars.
EDIT: There's also an optional AEM WMI Solenoid $61.77 which is not required but looks to be a good safety feature that isn't included.

Completely agree and I look forward to the write up. My Burger Motorsports setup is nice but I needed the proper tank seal fitting for retrofitting to the oem washer fluid tank and a better nozzle injection solution. I went with TB spacers that I will drill and tap for the nozzles. But you doing a solid writeup should help others in the future and hopefully help people in ordering all the right parts from the get go to make it a weekend project.

The Snow Performance nozzle mount adapters just got here and they are MASSIVE. Back to the drawing board... What do you guys suggest I use to mount the nozzles to the silicone couplers in front of the TBs? @Ddnspider specified he's using a jam nut for this. However the AEM nozzles are 1/8" NPT units made out of aluminum. I can put a jam nut on but it'll never come off. It's a heck of a lot cheaper than these Snow Performance units for $67.00

Thank you for highlighting the real cost of these "bolt on kits". I got a bunch of flake for my "pieces together budget kit" option that was a total of $2xx including my failsafe lol.
