Do not work on your vehicle while the engine is hot.
Make sure the engine is turned off and the vehicle is in Park or the Parking Brake is set.
Note: This intake kit may not fit with the following Aftermarket Parts installed: Body Lift or Lowering Kit, Custom Hood, Throttle Body Spacer / Upgrade
10mm, 13mm, 5/16” Wrench or Socket
Phillips head Screwdriver
5/16” Nut Driver or Flat Blade Screwdriver

THREAD LOCKER USE
We have provided a small tube of thread locker in your kit. Whenever you see the symbol above on a step of the instructions apply 1 small drop of the thread locker to the threads of the screws or bolts. This will keep your hardware from vibrating loose during rough driving. If the hardware ever needs to be removed, do so slowly to avoid having the inserts strip out from the plastic.
Be sure the engine is cool before starting!
With the ignition switched off and the parking brake set, disconnect the negative battery cable.
IMPORTANT: Failure to disconnect the battery for a minimum of 2 hours may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate upon completion of the installation or subsequent operation.
