I used a Dewalt 4" grinder and an air pencil grinder. I used painters tape to mark out the cuts. Take your time, it will show in the end product. lots of test fitting

Dont pull the nose/bumper off the car like the instructions say. Pull your radiator and ac condenser. Test fit your ic by putting it into the nose through the engine compartment/radiator support hole. This makes it much easier to get it positioned. If you take the bumper off and then mount the ic you'll do 5 times as much work and your front bumper will end up butchered like the one on my first turbo car.

I used so many different tools the first time I don't remember which worked! I am getting ready to install a On3 kit on a new notch project and will be installing it with the nose on this time. Helped a friend do his and it was much easier and fit better. He used a small air powered cut off tool and die grinder to trim a couple of small areas. The first car I installed the On3 kit on had a procharger 3 row race intercooler on it previously so it was already a little cut up. The new notch is much too nice to hack away at.

Good luck. Hope to see you at Firebird or Speedworld when you get it running.

Leaving the nose on is the only way to do it. Thats all I did when I installed my kit. I didnt have to cut anything!
