First off take off the filter
then if you are standing at your fender then look closer below you and locate the cruise control module. it should be a little black object that can fit in your hand with a cable coming out of it. there should be two nuts that are i think 10mm, you can remove those. DONT forget to remove your sensor it is in the to the left of the meter(if you are facing the car head on) you have to look some what down in there its just one bolt. and now just unclip the airbox from the meter and give a good tug.
now to remove the air duct piping whatever you wanna call it. just pull it towards the back of the car and it should come out.
now your ready to put on your intake place the hosing over the meter (if you want you can remove the silencer) and then push the piping into the hosing if you have silicone this might take some effort then tighten the hose clamps. and now put your sensor back in and tighten the bolt. now just place your filter on. also dont forget, look at your airbox again remember those two bolts that held it on to the bracket with the cruise control. if you look at the two bolts they are removable just turn them counter clockwise and there you go just use this and bolt it on with the 2 nuts to the bracket to hold the cruise control and your finished ( i would recomend you make a type of bracket to hold the intake since it is just held up only by the meter)
after you are done idle the car for about 5mins and drive it around this should help your ecm get use to the intake and apply the right fuel air mixture. some people say disconnect your battery negative terminal to reset the ecm but i have never done that myself

Autechnica, I see that you did the fan delete mod and that you added an electric fan. What type of fan is it? Why did you do this, do you leave in a hot climate area?
