I just got some info from peter aka Illusion from SHO

Quote:
You should get the horns, a compressor, some air tubing, a little wiring, and a relay. To hook them up. Find a home for the horns. Mine are on the on the drivers side of the radiator firing down. I just zip tied them to the post there. The compressor If bolted to the bar where the air box used to be since I have a CAI, if you don't have one just find a nice place to bolt it down. Run the tubing from the compressor to the horn. Last take the relay, connect one coil to the ground and the other coil to the stock horn honk wire(If I remeber it's a green wire, and there's only one, the stock horns are grounded through their base if I remember right). Then take one pole and connect it to the + on the battery and then the other pole to the + on the compressor. Ground the other lead on the compressor and you're all set. Be forwarned they are freaking loud. Even with the horn pointing down it makes me sick to my stomach if I stand in front of the car and honk it. I'll post some pics on my site either tomorrow or saturday so you can see what the heck I'm talking about.

hope that helps a little.

I got mine from here http://www.susquehanna.com/susq/hella/85105.htm

I just installed mine yesterday. It was pretty straight forward. It took me about 2 hours because I had to learn it while doing it.

Overall it is a pretty good mod for 30 bucks. It's A LOT louder, and has a higher tone. Omg, i scared the **** outta my friend by pulling up behind him and riding hte horn
