It may sound a little daunting for someone with no car experience but it really isn't that bad. Take it from someone who knew nothing about cars before I bought my Mustang. I've learned a lot since then. It did help that I had an extra vehicle at the time. It can get very frustrating and discouraging but don't give up. I think our year model car is very finicky about what is done to it. I am sure to do very thorough research now to see how my mods will effect the car. Planning is the key. Always give yourself plenty of time so that you don't have to rush and possibly miss a step. If you have any questions about what I wrote feel free to PM me. Hope this works for you. Later. D.
