8. Use the plastic conduit (the ribbed covering) to peel away the covering without doing significant damage to the wires. Take great care not to knick any of the wires with your knife. Doing so may cause major headaches down the line. Once you have peeled back the wires, use the electrical tape and wrap everything up nice and neat. This will help to keep moisture and such away from your wires, which is also important, since your MAF sensor will be relocated to the fender well.
9. Install the apron, using the stock air filter bolt (5/16” nut driver) Before attaching the apron, create an edge guard around this hole with some tape. This will aid in reducing any scratching that may occur while installing the pipe.
10. Install the 45-degree elbow and clamps onto the tube. Make sure the short end of the elbow is attached to the tube. When installing the elbow, the part number will be on the underside when it is properly in place.
11. If you find yourself having trouble attaching the elbow to the tube and/or throttle body with the clamps attached, you may also loosen the clamps to the point where they become disconnected. After the elbow and tube are properly connected, pinch the ends of the clamp together with one hand, while you tighten the nut with the other hand. Do not tighten the clamp yet, as you will need to adjust the tube at times to get your MAF and air filter to fit properly.
12. Once the tube and elbow have been attached, attach the assembly to the throttle body. To properly put the tube in place, first place the round end into the apron hole with the assembly upright, and rotating it towards the end of the engine bay. Once you are able to seat the elbow, tighten the clamps to a snug fit. Again, use your fingers to ensure a proper seating all the way around. Failure to do so will result in air leaks.
13. Access the fender well by removing the Philips screw with a stubby screwdriver and two push pins, and pulling the plastic shield back. Don't be afraid to muscle this around a bit, it's a sturdy piece designed to hold up to years upon years of wear and tear. Also, be advised: If you've never accessed your fender wells, there will be a litany of crud and dirt to greet you. At this time, you may wish to spend an extra minute cleaning some of this off, thus keeping it from getting into your MAF housing and air filter during installation.
14. Install the MAF/air filter assembly onto the round end of the tube. Rotate the tube at the throttle body, to the right or the left, to help make adjustments during this time.
