Disconnect the electrical harness connectors for the Intake Air Temp (IAT) and the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor then unsnap the wire loom from the tube. On the MAF sensor, slide the red locking tab up then press down on the tab and pull the connector out. For the IAT sensor, press down on the grey tab and pull the connector out.
STEP 2 (IMAGE 2)
Loosen the hose clamp at the turbo inlet, next pinch the spring clamp and slide it up the CCV line. Pull off the silicone hose and remove spring clamp.
Remove the mounting nut on the stock airbox. Save the nut for the installation.
Lift up and out to remove the stock airbox assembly from the vehicle.
Install the Tube Seal (C) onto the Airbox (A).
Carefully remove both MAF and IAT sensors from the stock intake tube and install them onto the Intake Tube (B). Use the supplied 8/32 Screws (J) and MAF Gasket (V) for the MAF sensor. Use the supplied 8/32 Screws (X), IAT Sensor Spacer (W), and IAT Sensor Gasket (V) for the IAT sensor. Do not overtighten.
STEP 7 (IMAGE 2)
Slide the Silicone Adapter (E) and two #64 Hose Clamps (G) onto the Intake Tube (B) and the Breather Hose (F) and two #12 Hose Clamps (H) onto the spout. Make sure not to push the coupler too far deep into the tube. The edge of the coupler should meet up to the backstop bead and the edge of the tube should be about halfway through the coupler. Tighten the hose clamps on the intake side. Leave the other ones loose for now.
(OPTIONAL) For those concerned about minimal engine heat; install the Box Plug (N) onto the bottom of the Airbox (A) using the provided 1/4-20 Screws (Q), Lock Washers (P), Flat Washers (O) and Locknuts (U). For those seeking additional airflow, set the box plug aside.
Install the Intake Tube (B) onto the turbo and slide the Breather Hose (F) onto the CCV line. Do not tighten any hose clamps yet. Place the Air Filter (D) and Air Box (A) into the truck. Insert the other end of the air intake tube into the airbox. You may have to lift the air box up a little bit to get the air intake tube through the Tube Seal (C)...continue on Step 10b.
The stop bead on the Intake Tube (B) should be sealed up to the tube seal. Slide the air filter onto the intake tube and tighten the #88 Hose Clamp (S). Align the box prongs on the bottom of the airbox with the grommets on the side of the battery tray and push down on the box to completely seat the prongs onto the grommet. Tighten the hose clamp at the turbo and CCV line.
Secure the Airbox (A) using the stock mounting nut removed in Step #4.
Remove the protective covering on the Clear Lid (I).
Install the Edge Trim (S) onto the Clear Lid (I).
Place the Clear Lid (I) on top of the Airbox (A) using the supplied 10-24 Screws (L) and Washers (K).
Reconnect the electrical connector into the MAF and IAT sensor.
Reconnect the negative terminal on both batteries. Inspect your installation, make sure the kit is properly positioned and all fasteners are secure. Affix the CARB/ID label near the intake kit. The installation is now complete.
