    Intake, exhaust, remote starter, LEDs everywhere, DAP tuned (4-5-19),
    Not too difficult. I'll quote my Amazon review, cause that lays it out pretty well:
    After getting this installed, it works very well. I didn't get any codes. I also have an exhaust, and it makes the exhaust slightly louder, which is fine. Feels like more hp, but no hard numbers to back up. If you're in the market for an aftermarket intake, I highly recommend this one. That being said, the installation instructions are not real clear on which bolts to use for which brackets. There's another review here that gives some install tips as well, which helped. Here's my addition:
    - The big one is: the provided coupler is too small. I went to True Value and bought a 1/2" coupler for irrigation systems. It fit snugly with the existing large air tube, and with the provided section of air tubing. Bought three hose clamps as well. This worked very well. If this intake didn't work so well, I'd give it four stars for this; but as it is, the intake is awesome.
    - Here's the order I recommend, use pictures on instructions as a guide:
    1. Secure the two pieces of heat shield together with the four small black screws;
    2. Attached the silver heat foam to the inside of the heat shield and the cone filter shield;
    3. Attach brackets to respective slots: long bolt, spacer, heat shield, washer, lock washer, locking nut - may be overkill, but it works.
    - There are four longer bolts. These are for the three brackets. I had several bolts and nuts left over after install. Maybe they provide more for fitment on other vehicles?
    - The spacers for the bolts go between the brackets and the heat shield.
    - I was only able to attach two of the bolts to the truck frame through the two lower brackets. I had to take out an existing bolt, put bracket underneath, then reattach. The other bracket attached to an old hole for the OEM intake. I used one of the shorter bolts provided to attach this one.
    - The upper bracket is supposed to go where the horn is bolted to the frame on the passenger side, but I couldn't get that one on, so I just left it. The two lower brackets held the heat shield in very securely.
    - I attached the cone filter shield underneath the clamp for the cone filter. It's loosey-goosey, but doesn't seem like it'll do any harm to the filter. I may take the thing off at some point.
    - The valve cover does not fit level like with the OEM intake. The intake pipe is too big. It's up on the passenger side by an inch or so. I could only get the front snap back into place. It's secure enough, but not sitting flat.

    Intake, exhaust, remote starter, LEDs everywhere, DAP tuned (4-5-19),
    I followed the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYImdD26vmE&t=0s) and it wasn't bad. I set my laptop up on the center armrest and paused often, sometimes rewinding. Took a couple hours. I felt a little apprehensive about taking all the pieces off, especially the airbag harness, to expose all the wiring; but, make sure you disconnect the neg. batt. terminal and take your time. I'll hand it to Toyota, their build quality is awesome. Everything went back exactly as it was prior. I don't always find that to be the case when working on vehicles. One thing he doesn't mention in the video is that you need to cut the little yellow looped wire on the control module for automatic vehicles. This is clearly stated on the actual module, but just not mentioned in the video. Also, I wish I'd purchased the long-range key fobs when I purchased this system. The OEM key fob has about a 100' range, but it just makes sense to have a longer range if you're going to have the remote feature. They arrive today and look like the antenna simply plugs into the module and you're good. This kit (2x two-way LED fobs and the antenna) were $80 from his website as a separate purchase. Less if you buy with the starter system. As an aside, I didn't go with the phone app option because: 1) more expensive; 2) I couldn't think of a situation where I'd want/need to start or lock/unlock my truck if I wasn't somewhere nearby. Also, this remote starter added an alarm to my truck, which it didn't have before. Thought that was a cool addition. Very happy with the results.
