1. Start by locating your factory airbox under the hood.

2. Locate and remove the mass airflow sensor and PCV hose from the stock airbox.

3. Loosen the clamp at the throttle body with a flat screw driver or a 5/16 nut driver. You will then be able to remove the air hose from the throttle body.

4. Using a 10mm socket remove the screw at the end of the airbox. You will then be able to remove the entire unit by lifting up.

5. Install the heat shield by using the 10mm screw that was removed and the 6mm nut provided.

6. Place the reduction coupler on the throttle body with two clamps. Slide the JLT tube through the heat shield and insert it in the reduction coupler. Tighten the clamps being sure not to over tighten.

7. Remove the Mass airflow sensor from the factory airbox using the T-20 torx driver and install it on the JLT tube using the screws provided. It will only install in one position.

8. Install the filter at the end of the tube, making sure the clamp on the filter is loose enough to make it easy to instal. Tighten the clamp once you have it in position, making sure not to over tighten. Connect your Mass airflow sensor and your PCV hose.

9. Installation is complete!
