intake install

hey everyone,
im still a newbie who wants to install an intake. I was wondering how hard it was and if i should have someone else install it or if i would be able to. If someone can let me knwo how hard it is and what it takes, i would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks


Also, if anyone has dealt with SRT motor sport in anahiem, lemme know if you liked them

just make sure you have all the tools and good instructions. I got an AEM CAI with a bypass and the instructions it came with was very detailed. I followed it step for step. Only real difficult part was getting the old stock intake out. I had to cut some parts of it to get it out. Sometimes it seemed like it was never meant to come out. But it eventually did. I would say stock intake and sawing the intake in half for the bypass was the hardest. Other than that pretty easy. I think it took around 3 hours.

Wow 3 hours, It took me 45 minutes to put my injen CAI in, and that was with removing the bumper cover also. If your not positve you can do it, then dont.

You've come across the hardest part of taking off the bumper... There aren't any screws holding it to that part next to the headlight but it sure feels like it. It's just wedged in there really tight. All I can tell you is to pull hard but evenly cuz it feels like the bumper gonna crack/bend at that point but it just comes off... It's funny though cuz it just pops into place when you're ready to put the bumper back on.

Good luck.

u dont need to take off the tire, there are 4 push in screws under the bumper, 2 bolts on each underside, 1 or 2 other push in screws on the sides, and a phillips screw on the very end of the bumper in the wheel well. there are also like one or two push in screws in the wheel well. then carefully pull the bumper away, it will eventually come off.

the resonator has two, i think 10mm bolts in the middle of it. take those out and pull really hard on the box. the take off the air box and filter.

u will have to re route the coolant line as it is in the way of the intake thats pretty much it make sure u tighten everything enough dont forget to put the filter on.

there are people on here that installed the intake without taking off the bumper . you can save time doing that but i dont think its worth the hassle. You should be able to do it just by taking off the tire. this takes another hour from what i read
But its all up to you
