Note: This intake kit may not fit with the following Aftermarket Parts installed: Body Lift or Lowering Kit, Custom Hood, Throttle Body Spacer / Upgrade
8mm & 10mm Wrench/Socket
5/16” Nut Driver or Flat Blade Screwdriver
T20 Torx (supplied)
Disconnect both the positive and negative cables from the passenger side battery and disconnect only the negative cable from the battery on the driver side.
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. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!
Disengage the red locking clip, press down on the tab, then pull out to disconnect the MAF sensor harness from the MAF sensor. Unclip the wiring harness from the stock intake lid.
Loosen the hose clamp at the intake tube and unhook the four clips on the stock intake lid. Remove the stock intake lid from the vehicle.
Loosen the hose clamp at the turbo inlet and remove the screw securing stock intake tube.
Disconnect all rubber hoses and coolant lines then remove the stock intake tube from the vehicle.
Remove the screw securing the air box to the battery tray. Set this screw aside, it will be reused in Step 14.
Carefully remove the stock airbox out of the vehicle. Check to make sure that the rubber grommets are still in the vehicle and did not get pulled out with the airbox.
Remove the stock intake inlet gasket from the stock airbox and install it onto the Airbox (A).
Install the Tube Seal (R) onto the Airbox (A).
With this intake kit we have included a breakaway Box Plug (S) that is designed to keep engine heat out of your airbox but also serves as a safety mechanism that will protect your engine in the event that the main inlet of the intake becomes blocked with debris.
Determine if you want to install the Box Plug (S) onto the Airbox (A) or leave it open. See the “Air Box Plug” for more information.
Determine if you want to install the Box Plug (B) onto the Airbox (A) or leave it open. See the “Airbox Plug” for more information.
If the Box Plug (B) is desired, simply press the Box Plug (B) into the box opening until it snaps into place.
Place the Rubber Washer (M) on top of the stock mounting clip on the battery tray.
Install the Airbox (A) into the vehicle, ensure the prongs are completely seated onto the stock grommets. Align the mounting tab, located on the backside of Airbox (A), with the stock mounting clip and Rubber Washer (M) then install the screw, removed in Step 6, and tighten.
Install the Coupler (P) and #72 Hose Clamps (O) onto the Intake Tube (Q). Slide the coupler over the intake tube as much as possible so it is flush with the end of the tube. This will provide additional clearance during installation. Leave the hose clamps loose.
Install the Intake Tube (Q) into the Airbox (A). First, start by feeding the tube underneath the A/C lines and through the Tube Seal (R). Note the angle of the tube for this step. The orientation of the tube will allow for an easier installation.
Rotate the Intake Tube (Q), to align it with the turbo inlet, then slide the Coupler (P) over the turbo inlet. Position the #72 Hose Clamps (O) to the side of the intake tube so that the hose clamp is not in direct contact with the rubber hoses. Tighten both hose clamps.
Carefully remove the MAF sensor from the stock intake tube and install it onto the Intake Tube (Q) with the 8-32 Screws (J), MAF Pad (H) and MAF Gasket (I).
Place the Air Filter (C) into the Airbox (A), slide it onto the Intake Tube (Q), then tighten the #80 Hose Clamp (F).
Remove the protective covering from the Clear Lid (E).
Stretch silicone lid seal around the perimeter of the clear lid. It should be a snug fit.
The notch on the lid and the tab of the lid seal should mate in the same corner.
Press the Lid Seal (D) into the opening on the top of the Airbox (A) until it snaps into place.
Route the MAF sensor harness between the coolant line and reconnect it to the MAF sensor. Make sure to engage the red locking clip.
To protect the intake tube from the A/C line, remove the paper backing from the Insulation Tube (N), wrap it around the A/C line, then press the adhesive against the foam wrap to secure it around the A/C line.
Secure the coolant hose near the turbo inlet with the Loop Clamp (G), M6 Screw (K) and Washer (L) onto the mounting location previously used by the stock intake tube in Step 4.
Reconnect all cables on both batteries, make sure the kit is properly positioned and all fasteners are secure. Keep all stock parts in case you ever need to reinstall them. Affix the ID label near the intake kit. The installation is now complete
