Determine if you want to install the Intake Box Plug (G) onto the Intake Box (F). See the “Intake Box Plug” note to decide the desired setup.
STEP 17 (IMAGE 2)
For ease of installation, it is suggested to assemble the intake inside the vehicle. First place Snorkel (U) in a position close to the fender inlet then place the Intake Box (F) into the vehicle.
STEP 18 (IMAGE 2)
Align the Snorkel (U) with the Intake Box (F) and secure them together with 1/4”-20 Bolts (Q), 5/16” Split Lock Washers (R), 1/4” Flat Washers (S). Tighten all four 1/4”- 20 Bolts.
Secure the Intake Box (F) to the fender with the M8 Bolt (I) and Flat Washer (H). Leave the bolts loose.
From inside the wheel well, secure the Intake Box (F) to the frame with the M8 Bolt (I) and Flat Washer (H). Make any final adjustments if needed then tighten both bolts.
Secure the two A/C lines disconnected in Step 8. The lower A/C line with the Loop Clamp (AC), Washer (AD), and Locknut (AE). Align the stock A/C brackets on the higher A/C line and secure with the Washer (AD), and Locknut (AE).
Slide the Coupler (O) onto the throttle body with the Hose Clamps #56 and #60 (P & N). Only tighten the #56 Hose Clamp, leave the other one loose.
If necessary, spray some silicone lubricant around the Tube Seal (J) so the Intake Tube (K) can go through the tube seal easier. Feed the air tube through the tube seal from inside the Intake Box (F) then connect the other end of the intake tube into the Coupler (O). Tighten the #60 Hose Clamp (N).
Install the CCV Fitting (L) onto the Intake Tube (K) until hand tight, then use a crescent wrench and tighten it another one to two complete turns. Connect the CCV line to the CCV fitting and secure the plastic clips to the hoses.
IMPORTANT: Do not over tighten, as the Quick Connect Fittings can break or the threaded inserts may strip!
