How To:AEM SR Intake

Hello,

I will start this off by saying do this at your won risk, i am not responsible for anything you may do wrong...whatever it may be, this is how i did and have told others to do it and not problems yet

Tools:Flathead screwdriver,Hands,Wrench



Step 1: Your going to need to remove your stock airbox, there is one clamp on the throttle body that you will need to unscrew and loosen, then there are two bolts holding the stock airbox on, one by the firewall or by the top of the shock in your engine bay, and then the second is down by the battery, its best to remove the cover behind the headlights, it just pops off, then take both those bolts out, then you need to take the two hoses off, i will examplify these more in the pictures below, there is one on the rear hose coming off the TB to the airbox, one behind and one in front, they will have clamps on them that can be taken off with a set of pliers or a wrench, then lastly, you will need to take off your front bumper to remove the resonator, which it way deep in there and you have to do this, to learn how to take off your front bumper either pm me and ask or go into the diy section and look at "diy clearing/blackhousing your oem headlights" and it explains in good detail on how to remove this, once you have it off then just slide off the resonator and your done taking off the stock airbox

Step 2:The only thing different between a Cold Air Intake and a Short Ram is the 2nd pipe or the Cold air extension, so everything else is the same in install except for the extra tube, or some of you may have 1 piece intakes so problem solved, but anyways ill get back to the install, now that you have everything off you are read to start the install of your intake, first put the rubber conncector on the end of the pipe that feeds into your Throttle Body, put it on half way, then gently slide it on, (MAKE SURE ON ANYTHING IN THIS INSTALL YOU ALWAYS PUT THE CLAMP OVER THE INTAKE SO YOU CAN PUT IT ON, YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHY IF YOU DONT), once you have it on line up the bracket by the firewall on top of the mounting rubber stop thingy, then tighten the clamp on the TB (i used two clamps) and make sure its really really tight so no air escapes, then place the bolt on the bracket and tighten it down so you dont have to hold the intake in place anymore, on the hoses that connect, the one on back will just slide on, the stock clamp will fit over this and just put back the clamp and tighten, on the frotn hose the intakes hole is fatter, so in your kit you got a rubber extension connector that will fit over the stock hose so it can fit onto the intake, you will probably need a really small clamp for this, im not using one right now but im going to get radiator clamps to tighten them on, but dont tighten them tons cause over time it will make the hose break and crack, ok then in your kit it will come with a rubber stopper, place it to the left of where the stock airbox was sitting so the AEM bracket off the SR will match up, it should just screw down in there, then place the bracket in, then tightnen down, then double check over it to make sure everything you just did is nice and snug, then its time to put on the filter for you SR's out there, once again slide the clamp loosely onto the back of the filter, then slide it over and tighten the clamp pretty tight so no air escapes, then you are done with the SR install and enjoy!

For the CAI, ok where you took off the stock airbox bolt down by the battery you will need to bolt the 2nd pipe or extension down there so it doesnt wiggle around, then you will have a connector to connect the main pipe to the CAI extension, this will require two more clamps, tighten one on both sides and make sure they are nice and tight, those are the extra things you have to do for the CAI

If you have any questions or i left anything out please feel free to tell me and i will add it, im happy to answer any worries/comments, i will attach some pics below pointing out certain things in the installation

Thanks,
Chris



and this pic is pointing out the clamp that needs to be removed, installed on the TB part of the install

Is there any way to do this without taking off the front bumper, to remove the resonator.

It is pretty much the same and just as easy, except your pipe is going to go towards the left side instead of the right.

DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE CLAMPS!!!!!!!

LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE!

IF YOU OVER TIGHTEN THEM THEN THE INTAKE TUBE WILL BEND LIKE IT DID ON MINE, NOW I HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A SHOP AND HAVE IT REPAIRED AND I DONT KNOW IF ITS GOING TO COME BACK INTO ITS NORMAL SHAPE NOW.

please be very carefull to make the clamps VERY SNUG not SUPER TIGHT!

my intake opening on the Throttle Body end of it now looks like this...

well yeah, if you tighten the clamps to tight it also makes the hoses crack and wear very fast...good tip....

DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN, IF IT FEELS REALLY REALLY TIGHT ITS PROBABLY TOO TIGHT!

I've just installed the SR on my coupé over here in the U.K. Excellent guide for installation - couldn't have managed without it!

What a sound! Is this the first right-hand-drive with an AEM?
