Determine if you want to install the Box Plug (I) onto the Intake Box (A) or leave the secondary inlet open. If the Box Plug is desired, simply press the Box Plug onto the box opening until the box plug snaps into place.
When to use the Box Plug?
Stock intake boxes are a significant contributor to poor air flow which is why S&B designs custom air boxes with secondary and/or enlarged openings. With that said, S&B recognizes the benefits of cooler air, so we have included a plug to seal off the opening if desired. For optimal performance, we recommend that the intake be used without the box plug, except in conditions of extreme heatwave.

IMPORTANT: Do not over tighten, as the Quick Connect Fittings can break or the threaded inserts may strip!
