Air intake is now installed!! This one was a bit more involved and yes, I did require some "man" work!!! The air box assembly did not want to come out, so my hubby had to use his big strong man arms to pull it out. The air sensor, well I had no idea how the heck that was supposed to come out so he took care of that (broke the plastic housing in the process so I am concerned on that one). The rest was easy enough, except for the a/c mounting bolt, way too tight so while he was helping me with the air box assembly he loosened that for me.
Putting it all back in was ok. I had extra parts, some washers, an extra bolt and a huge washer. I triple checked the instructions and didn't forget anything. Even had him double check me too. They didn't send enough nuts. The one bracket for the heat shield that fastens to the inner fender was missing the nut, so we had to improvise. Also, the intake tube is supposed to be secured to the mounting bracket which was bolted in with the a/c bolt, but there was no instructions for that at all! Hubby to the rescue again on that. He figured out that one and bolted it in.
Total install time for me was 2 1/2 hours. Had a couple of rain delays and I was going slow so I wouldn't mess up. Will be taking her out for a spin in a while. My only concern is the air temperature sensor and if it got damaged in the uninstall from the stock intake.
