Directions for adding the "Black Mamba" to your 5.2 or 5.9. Other engines may not need the air hat.
Step1 - Remove old air pipe and hat. Pipe should just come off from fender and hat nothing to unbolt.

Step 2 – Mount the air hat that you have from donar vehicle (Dakota, Durango, Cadillac, or an old CAI) The one from a Dakata/Durango you will need to use the “S’ bolt that goes from the trottle body up through the hat. It will be a tight fit with the firewall right there but just maneaver it so it slides on or you can leave the bolt a little loose and angle it to get the hat on. It will eventually only be able go one way, towards the passenger side.

Step 3 - Attach the rubber coupler from the plumbing department to the hat with the suppled clamps.
Step 4 – Attach whatever filter you would like to the pipe you got in the electrical department, the Spectre filter I used covers from 2 ˝ in up to 4 in pipes.

At this time you can figure a way to help support it. As you can see in my picture I just used a strap and bent it to fit, but I will be changing that soon to an electrical conduit holder mounted to my fender.

Step 5 – Attached the pipe to the rubber coupler on you air hat with the clamps supplied.
You’re done so far, unless you don’t want to paint.
For painting take all apart same way installed. Make sure since its plastic to use an adhesion promotor (?) when painting. Then reinstall per instructions above.
You can also make your own heatshield or just buy one of the universal ones. I will be buying one shortly has I don’t like me homemade one out of heating duct and thermal tape.






Hows that?

No problem and thanks
I just went to the junk yard and found a Dakota, mine was an 03. As long as it doesn't have the 4.7 it should work.

I think mine even came off a V6 which they are the same on the V8 as I had a Dakota with the 3.9 and it had the same hat. just need the opening to fit over the TB. You can see the difference I think the opening is around 4 1/2 inches or a little bigger.

No clue on inspection as I do not have that here is Iowa. Its a little bit better throttle response and it louder. Have you had your exhaust done on your truck? If not that maybe something you need to get next also, since you have the air coming in it needs to get out too.

I dont have any after market exhaust on it just because i work part time and i am paying for the whole truck myself. So i am tight on money but i might get a flow master exhaust for it though later on down the road.
