First, remove the engine cover. Disconnect the two engine breather hoses by removing the clamps with pliers (circled in green). There are two clamps securing the hose to the engine and air box (circled in red). Remove the clamps with a 10mm socket, or a Philips-head (cross) screwdriver. Once the clamps are loosened, remove the hose by pulling from the throttle body side first.

Slide the included HPS Stainless Steel T-bolt clamps onto the HPS Silicone Intake Hose. Push the intake hose onto the air box first, then onto the throttle body. Tighten the two T-bolt clamps, and keep in mind that the air box side is plastic, so do not over-tighten the clamp on the air box side. Next, install the two breather hoses onto the Silicone Intake hose.

Once everything is secured and tightened, re-install the engine cover and take a test drive to make sure there are no odd noises or issues.

Unlike other aftermarket air intake modification, since the HPS Silicone Post MAF Air Intake Hose is installed after the mass air flow sensor, the intake hose would not change the amount of air going thought the maf sensor and therefore there would be no check engine light.
