Neither of these are huge issues, just not what people are expecting when told it's a drop in alternative. But yes there is more $$ involved now for hoses and bracketing and hardware but it's all bolt in and no re-engineering required.
Chris, are the throttle and mixture cables supplied in Vans FWF kit workable or are new ones in order?
