Installation Time: (approx) 1 Hour
Step 1 Disconnect the negative battery terminal.
Step 2 Remove flexible inlet hose from throttle body (2 hose clamps).
Step 3 Disconnect any cables, etc. attached to the throttle linkage.
Step 4 Unplug the throttle position sensor and idle bypass valve.
Step 5 Remove 4 nuts securing throttle body to intake.
Step 6 Install stock throttle position sensor and idle bypass valve using factory hardware or new hardware, if supplied. (Be sure to use supplied plastic bushing on the T.P.S.)* For optimum performance, match the intake opening to the new throttle body size. Although this is not necessary it will maximize intake flow.*

Step 9 Reinstall flexible hose to throttle body and airbox.
Step 10 Reconnect the negative battery cable.
Step 11 Turn idle screw counter clockwise until you can see between the screw and the throttle linkage (if using feeler gauge .010") then turn clockwise exactly one full turn.
Step 12 Be sure the idle valve adjustment screw (gold colored slot head) is turned clock wise until it bottoms in its bore. (Do not use too much force when bottoming screw.)
Step 13 Start engine, if no idle can be achieved, turn gold idle valve screw counter clockwise in small increments, restarting engine until desired idle rpm is achieved.
These guys are great! Customer service is absolutely top notch. Their pricing points are spot on and every month they off some sort of special on multiple parts. Not only that but the staff will educate you on the parts and their customer reveiw option of every part has been a huge help in determining the validity of each part you buy. American Muscle is the perfect example of what a full service parts distributor and custom tuning shop should be. I'm just glad they are Mustang exclusive!
