Ok there are a lot of different ways to go about this. This is the way that a lot of people go.

First thing is first, unscrew the bolts holding the Airbox Down, there should be approx. 3-4 bolts. then once it is unbolted, remove it from the accordian tube by undoing the hose clamp clip (its black plastic, all u need is a flathead screw driver)

Second step.

you could go two ways at this point.

Way #1) instead of removing the accordian tube, buy a cone filter ( something along the lines of a K&N or a Ractive Filter with Heatshield.)

now just stick the filter end into the accordian tube and use the supplied hose clamp to secure it (if it doesnt come witha hose clamp you can pick one up at any hardware store for like $1.50.

it will look like this:



if you do this you dont need a breather or anything else.








Way #2)

this way is a little more expensive but will def. help in the performance,look, and sound.

Go to autozone and buy the Spectre intake tube from them ( part number 8208) and you can have your pick at cone filters, (id reccomend again either the K&N or the Ractive w/ heatshield) but you can also buy the spectre intake filter as well.


ok step 1 after you have bought the tube you can now remove the accordian tube. to do this simply undo the hose clamp that is clamping the accordian tube onto the Throttle Body, (again a simple flathead screwdriver will do the trick) now once this is off, just get rid of it ( watch out there may be oil in it)

ok now that everything is off i reccomend you turn the car on and spray a can of carb cleaner or something in the TB to clean everything out. once this is done shut the car off again. now you can either attach the tube in 1 of two ways. the way that i did it,

put the bent end and attach that end to the Throttle body and run the supplied breather hose right into the breather hole and then just attach the filter on and your done (make sure to secure each end with a tight fitting hose clamp).

the other way is to put the bent end fartherset from the Throttle body and instead put the straight end on the throttle body. The only drawback to doing it this way is that you need to buy a Breather filter for where the PCV hole now is. you can usually order a 25mm breather filter (clamp on) from an auto parts store. for about $12
