Why do you need a new hood? Won't the procharger fit under the existing one?

Yes sir. Save yourself $200. You don't need that flasher tool either.

Just drive a few miles.

And to think the sales rep had convinced me I needed 4 TPMS sensors and the tool. Thanks guys ya just saved me $200!

I will be going with blue small diameter gorilla lug nuts 13/16.
Someone who has niche could maybe clarify for me but I believe I need them this small to not damage the lug nut wells.

As long as you don't mind breaking down the wheels/tires to get to the "old" sensors you can absolutely move them. I wanted to keep my stock set intact to get the most money out of them so I bought a new set of sensors. btw, Tirerack had the full set for $140 and I had Discount Tire price match

As for the lugs, surprisingly the stock lug nuts fit the Velgens and the Roush crap already came with locking lugs with a nifty little Roush pouch for the key so I was able to reuse them. It is not really about the lug fitting as it is the socket.... try slipping a 21mm impact socket down the stud hole when you get the wheels. If it fits then you can use stock... if the hole is too small you need to get gorilla.

"Breaking down" means taking the tires off the wheels.

I had track-pack wheels originally with only 2k miles on them, to get the most money when selling them I wanted to keep it a complete package (wheels,tires,sensors). If your tires are shot or you are going to reuse them on the new wheels then you are already going to break down the old set and will obviously have access to the sensors.

They mean dismount the tire. Not break down.

The tpms sensor is connected to the air valve.

You have to remove the tire to get to the TPMS sensor. Here is a cut-away pic showing how the sensor is mounted.
