NOTE:If you refer to the image above the red lines are where your cuts need to be. Please note that the lines are in approximate positions. If you want an exact template take the gasket provided by Accufab and mark off where the top and bottom sit. Make your cut just SLIGHTLY above that line as you don’t want to cut into the elbow itself. Look for yourself and make sure that when you make your cut you are actually cutting through the aluminum separator and not the intake elbow. I personally suggest making the cut where the blue line is so that the piece can be removed in 2 sections. Cutting it to be removed in one full piece can sometimes be more difficult as the angle of the Dremel to make the cut is sometimes prohibited by the extra mass. This will also give you a chance to see how long it will take to get all the way through the aluminum.TAKE YOUR TIME!You do not want to rush this step. The aluminum is quite thick and can be tedious to remove. Keep your RPM's on your Dremel in the middle to mid-high range. If it is going too fast the wheel will shatter; and if it is going too slow you won't be able to make your cut.
- Fitment Check and Reinstallation
1. Once you have finished your cuts it is smooth sailing. Take your new Accufab throttle body and check the fitment making sure that the blade can open all the way and close all the way
2. If you are finding that the blade is hitting any portion of your cut take the throttle body off and slice a little more off until the blade can clear completely. If it can you are about 80% done. It's time to wrap this install up.
3. Take your old throttle body and remove the TPS sensor from the side. It is held on by two screws.
4. Transfer the TPS sensor to the new throttle body and screw it in with the screws that Accufab provides.
5. After transferring the TPS bolt the new throttle body onto the newly modified plenum. Make sure you put the gasket provided between the plenum elbow and the throttle body before bolting the new throttle body all the way into place.
6. Now reverse the removal of the intake to reinstall.
7. Bolt down the upper intake bolts hand tight and then tighten just a little more.
8. After doing that reconnect the bracket to the manifold
9. Then reconnect the cables back to their respective positions on the throttle body.
10. Snap the throttle position sensor connector back into place
11. Reconnect the EGR and IAC as well as the rubber tubing that are on the backside of the intake.
12. After that reconnect your intake tube to the throttle body clamp it down reconnect the battery and start it up!
