it is easy as pie man. if you know how to read a serice manual you will be able to do anything they ask of you. electrical was the hardest part for me and the class where i feel as if i got the most out of was dyno/performance tuning and the team green module where we learned suspension valving

Nice, that'll be a fun move.

I'm moving to Calgary Alberta, leaving on May 27 or 28. Going to be a fun 3 day drive.
