Tools Required: 13mm Box/Open
Carefully work the Air Box (A) into the vehicle. The space is tight but carefully move/rotate the box to make space for the grill inlet duct, fender, and coolant reservoir as you lower the Air Box. Once the Air Box is below the fender it will become easy to position the Air Box properly then push down to fully seat the Washer (D) into the stock bottom box grommet shown in Step 12. The AirBox should snap into the grommet.
Position the Air Box so that the hole in Air Box (A) is in line and matched with the threaded hole in the fender frame and the holes in the Shoulder Bushings (F) are also in line and matched with the threaded holes in Air Box Bracket (H). Rotate the Air Box Bracket (H) as required.
After the holes in Step 23 are in line and matched, make sure that the Front Scoop Bracket (B) slotted hole is over the threaded hole of the stock grill inlet duct. If the Front Scoop Bracket (B) needs to be repositioned, remove the Air Box (A) from the vehicle and readjust the Front Scoop Bracket (B).

Insert the Intake Tube (T) into the Box Seal (M) located on the Air Box (A). Work the Intake Tube (T) slowly, at the angle shown, until the bead on the Tube is up against the Box Seal (M).
Rotate the Intake Tube (T) until it is aligned with the turbo inlet and then slide the Coupler (Y) over the turbo inlet. Fully seat the Coupler (Y) until it is up against the flange of the turbo inlet all around. The bead on the Intake Tube (T) should also be by the edge of the Coupler (Y) all around.
The coolant hoses will be sitting on top of the Coupler (Y) so position the Hose Clamp screws away from the hoses as shown, then tighten both #72 Hose Clamps (AA).

Insert the Filter (AB) with #80 Hose Clamp (AC) into the Air Box (A) with the Filter flange pointing up.
Install the Filter (AB) and #80 Hose Clamp (AC) onto the Intake Tube (T). Insert the Intake Tube (T) fully into the Filter (AB) until it stops on the Filter flange shoulder. The base of the Filter flange should line up with the bead on the Tube. Rotate the Filter until the straight section of the filter becomes vertical as shown. Tighten the Hose Clamp (AC).
Tools Required: 5/16” Nut Driver.
Peel off the protective covering on the clear Lid (AE). Don’t forget to remove the protective covering around the S&B logo.
Install the Lid Seal (AD) around the outside edge of the clear Lid (AE).
Install the clear Lid (AE) with Lid Seal (AD) onto the Air Box (A). Start by inserting the Lid Seal groove over the Air Box opening on one corner first and then work your way around the Air Box. Make sure that the Lid Seal groove snaps over the entire Air Box opening. Check all around the Lid Seal snap groove to make sure it has snapped over the entire Air Box opening.

After the batteries have been disconnected for at least 2 hours, reconnect the positive battery terminal on the passenger side first and torque the terminal clamp nut to factory specifications, 80 lb-in (9 Nm), and place the cover over the terminal. Then reconnect the negative terminals on both batteries and torque the terminal clamp nut to factory specifications, 80 lb-in (9 Nm).
Tools Required: 10mm Socket/Torque Wrench
Look for any loose wires/harness that may be close or touching the Intake Box (A) or Air Box Bracket (H) and secure them away with Cable Ties (AF) to prevent them from wearing during vehicle movement and vibration.
