i would suggest, removing the air box, and then just putting it on the hose that goes into the box...

normally, people get the tube that will make it a ram air, or a cold air, which gives it some clearance from the motor...

your gonnna need the adaptor, or fabricate something simliar. its made for 318s , i think most kits have it, but if you bought something not made exactly for the 318 than your gonna have to find it somewhere.
