Any Z4 owners interested in a Z4 turbo install DIY?

It looks like I will get my Pure turbos and VTT Inlets next week and I plan to do the install myself. I plan on doing all of the work myself and I am curious if anyone would be interested if I put a DIY together. I don't think that it will be much different than the 335i or 135i but I haven't seen any DIY that is specific to the Z4.

My installer had to remove the radiator to install the front inlet. He noted though on the Z4 the radiator comes out through the bottom and not the top like the other N54 cars

That's strange... Just taking 5 minutes to pull the radiator fan out the top, gave me plenty of room to remove the stiff plastic front inlet with no problem at all. So installing a new flexible version shouldn't have been a problem either... I don't see why he would have needed to remove the radiator?

The way it was explained he had to drop it down in which I interpreted as coming out completely, perhaps it was just my misunderstanding
