Is it possible? The doco says yes, my mate says no, just want to make sure. How hard is it to fit to my EF Futura? Is it pretty much plug and play?

something i can help with

yeh its simple as s**t...

the first time you put it on.... takes a bit of effort but after that you can take it off.. drill holes what ever and goes on way easier...


you should cut off like 1cm of the lip (the end that goes near front)
and yeh.... when you drill holes, make sure your carefull and dont drill straight through and nip the radiator..

im not sure how others did it, but i undid the top radiator hose, caus well made it easier...
but yeh it can be done, its 2 minutes if you know what your doing... 10 max if you dont...
