Here's some pics from my y7/y8 mini-me. actual intall went very smoothly. after fixing bad connections on both ends of my knock sensor and a tps that was too far 'advanced', i had some white smoke for 2 days but went away after. She runs great, and pulls much harder than the stock y7 did.
Here's the before shot.
