Yes, try doing a search. It'* very easy to do.

Wait until the engine is cold. Undo the 2 10mm bolts holding the tstat housing on. Take off the housing remove the tstat. Put the rubber ring seal (a new one) around the new tstat and replace it, the housing and the 2 10mm bolts. Tighten 11 ft/lbs. Make sure no coolant is left in the bolt holes or your torque settings will be off and you will probably leak.

The silver box is the Powertrain Control Module. It'* what runs the engine. Stock, it is sitting in the airbox and just lifts out. I have mine mounted in the corner where the stock airbox was. It'* held down with double sided molding tape.

Its the 3.5 Diameter and 3 feet will do you. I actually used 2.5 but not sure they sell by the half foot.
