Tools to have for the upgrade install
I just finished doing this one today.
Make sure you have a long needlenose pliers with a 45° bend, it makes removal and attachment of the throttle cable possible without having to remove the fuel rail or airbox.
To get the E-ring circlip off of the throttle return cable, use a 1.5mm allen wrench behind the clip. Put the short arm through the clip, then grab the allen wrench with a vise grip and pull the clip off. Don't bother trying to take off the airbox, it is a huge pain and you may learn some additional LT repairs the expensive way.
Also having a good penlight and a small inspection mirror will allow you to see what you're doing.
