    So i bought a intake from volant the other day and decided to do a thread on the install, which happens to be my very first thread ever. Its a pretty easy process and only took about 30 min because of all the picture taking. Sorry some of my pictures are blurry, my camera was confused.

    First off you will need a socket set, screwdriver, some extra time, and some beer:).

    I laid out all the parts on the wall of my car port and made sure i had everything i needed.

    Then i disconnected the negative battery cable, and had already removed the engine cover awhile back so don't forget to do that if you still have yours attached.

    Loosen the clamp that holds the air box to the throttle body and the bolts that hold the resonator box to the wheel well.

    Then remove the MAF sensor from the air box, and i un hooked mine and then pulled it out to make the assembly of sensor on the intake tube easier and to avoid damage.

    There are two breather houses that need to be removed as well. One is in the front right next to the throttle body, and the other is in the very back and i could not get a picture of it. DSC_0223_39a77dab7370c9db2d1a82fb710b7c6e2a94a645.jpg

    Next is the TWO bolts holding the air box into place (the volant instructions said three, but there are only two). Then take the air box out

    Taking the air box out revealed the small breather hose.

    Then put the trim supplied with the intake on the new air box and push it into the hole in the wheel well where the old resonator used to be. Then use the factory bolts from the resonator to hold the new air box into place.

    Slide the 3 inch sleeve onto the throttle body and tighten down with the supplied clamp. Then slide the tube onto the sleeve and tighten down the clamp. Then push the filter onto the tube and tighten down the clamp.

    next attach the 1/8 breather hose with the coupling and extra line provided with the intake. for the 5/8 breather hose i completely removed the factory hose, and had to cut about an inch or so off the hose volant provided so it would fit nicely(yours may be different so be sure to fit it first so you know how much to cut off). I also used the factory clamps to hold it in place.

    For the MAF sensor i mounted it before i assembled the tube into place. Volant provides a new O-ring and new screws that must be used. and then i just plugged it in once i got the tube assembled into place. DSC_0240_b97144064af96b782e03e54175f9e6ac7b0079da.jpg

    Then put the cover on the air box, check for any leaks, and your good to go.

    Now you need to get the URD MAF Sensor Calibrator so you can get some power back.
