Alright, I had an issue with my paint (fish eye, which is weird considering i wiped it down with wax/grease remover) so I didn't fully install it but mocked it up minus the lid. I am going to hopefully sand it all back down and have it correctly painted tomorrow. :smileup:

Here's a how to install for some of u that will be getting them soon.

Pull this piece out of the box


Attach this piece using the 3 supplied screws that are in a bag with the coupler.


Pull factory Hose off (keep elbow) and install the breather in the elbow (I don't really like this breather but will make some adjustments later.)


Remove the Gap cover that's between the radiator and the front grill (just pulls up) Don't forget to pull off these clips that sit above ur headlights as they are pretty loose with nothing holding them down (and might go bye bye)




Install the coupler to the bottom of the assembly and then slide the assembly onto the throttle body and tighten both clamps down. Attach the IAT sensor in the coupler (just twists in)




Make sure everything is tight and ur ready to tear up the road!







This was my lid before it decided to fish eye. It happens and I will have time to fix it tomorrow maybe.

Looks like a really cool setup. A question, does the kit require you to run a breather? I really don't like breathers. Otherwise it sure is a slick looking intake and should perform as well as it looks. It looks like the cover over the radiator support remains off? That wouldn't bother me but may bother some...

So it's the line that people put a catch can on? Cool, I'd do the catch can if I did the intake, personally. I've had bad luck with breathers causing restriction and problems on past vehicles.

no, it's the one next to the oil fill cap. i'm saying it could tie into the catch can if u wanted to i'm pretty sure.

The quick drive I did was impressive! This thing feels much stronger than the Volant I tested, throttle response is much quicker than the stock airbox. No check engine lights or anything to report......all in all

THANK YOU VARARAM! IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT!!!! :)
