Injen Help

Can someone either tell me or point me in the direction of the thread talking about installing an intake. My Injen arrived today, and I am anxious to put it on, just don't know exactly what I need to do. I know I don't have to take off the front bumper, so any pointers will help me out.....hints, tools I will need, short cuts? I want this bad boy in.....

installing an intake is really really easy.

Tools i used (on a 4-cyl but most likely they will be the same):
-10mm and 8mm socket
-6in extention
-Phillips screwdriver
-Flathead screwdriver

To take off the bumper: There are a few plastic pop clip under each wheel well, and one screw on each side. Under the car there are 4 10mm bolts and about 5 of the pop clip things. Under the hood I believe there are a few pop clip things but i am not sure if they are connected to the bumper or not. You will be able to tell when you look.
Anyway, once all the bolts,screws, and pop clips are out just pull. It helps to have a friend to help and it might take a min or two of wiggling and playing with it before it come off, but it will come off.

Short Cuts: My advice is to not take any......short cuts usually arent the best way to get things done on a car. Follow the instructions step-by-step and you should be just fine. The first part I ever put on a car (concerning the engine) was an Injen intake. It is extremely easy.

Hints: disconnect the battery (but don't remove) and pull the ECU backup fuse while you are installing.......this will reset the ECU. Don't forget to make sure you have your radio key for when you hook up the battery again. You will need to enter it to be able to use your radio since it will be reset because of the power loss.

Also....let your engine cool for a while before installing. The installation involves the movement of coolant lines and hot coolant is not fun to get on you. There will be a little coolant loss when you move the lines, but not enough to sweat it, so don't worry if you see some spill out.

I don't know if the V6 intakes are two piece, but the 4-cyl. ones are. If it is a two piece, make sure the two pieces are connected securely and well tightened......mine came apart while driving one night. The filter should also be well tightened because i know of a person on this forum who has a had a problem with his filter coming off while driving.

Like I said earlier, I worked on a 4-cylinder car so some of this information may not be accurate. If I left anything out or if you have any questions I will try to answer them as best as possible.
