Firmly Lift up and remove the entire factory intake assembly from the grommets of the vehicle. Set the assembly to the side.
If you were provided sensor gaskets with your intake kit, please proceed to step 9B.
If your kit did not come with sensor gaskets continue to Step 9A.
Install the IAT and MAF Sensor to the new tube and install using the 3 provided self-tapping screws.
Step 9B (If sensor gaskets were provided)
Assemble onto the S&B Tube the gaskets and sensor pads for the IAT and MAF. Secure the sensors with the #8-32 pan head screws provided using a Phillips screwdriver.
Push the S&B Silicone Coupler (U) onto the S&B tube (L) and secure with #72 Hose Clamp (T) using a 5/16” driver or socket.

Install the silicone tube seal (K) onto the airbox (J).
Insert the Air Filter (C) into the Airbox (J).
Attach the tube (J) to the filter flange and slightly tighten the #88 hose clamp (I) using a 5/16” driver or socket. Allow the tube to be able to rotate for later in the installation.
Install the silicone scoop seal (V) onto the S&B airbox (J).
Decide to install the optional S&B silicone plug (F) onto the S&B Airbox or leave out.
Install the provided replacement S&B mounting grommets (H) onto the bottom of the S&B Airbox and mounting bracket.

MAF SENSOR REVERSAL: OVERVIEW
This intake relocates the MAF sensor to a section of the tube to read the correct values for airflow. That relocation can result in the MAF connectors braided split loom touching the intakes' silicone tube seal. While it will not damage the wiring in this configuration, some customers may prefer the split loom to have more clearance. The 90 degree shielding over the MAF sensor connector can be reversed to change the direction of the split loom. The following steps will illustrate how to reverse the MAF connector wiring shield so that the split loom does not touch the silicone tube seal.
With the engine off, unplug the MAF sensor connector from the MAF sensor. Locate the two snapping points on the wiring shield. Push in on the tabs to unlock the wiring shield.
Carefully pry open the wiring shield with a small screwdriver.
Remove the shield from the connector and reverse it so that the wires are routed away from the silicone tube seal.
Reinstall the wiring shield over the MAF sensor connector and reconnect into the MAF sensor.
