Ok folks, heres a pictorial guide on installing the TPR Cold Air Intake. First we will start off with a set of tools....

Socket Wrench
10 MM Socket
6 inch socket extension
Philips head screwdriver
Flat head screw driver

ok now on to the installation

REMOVING THE STOCK AIR BOX (skip if already removed)

Step 1: disconnect the ECU fuse in the main fuse box to reset the ecu.



Step 2: heres your engine bay with the stock box:



Remove the two screws that hold the stock box in place and loosen the two clamps on the stock box hose. The screw locations are pointed out for u.

Here is a close up of the second screw.



once those are removed, unclip the MAF and pull the stock box out. Remove the ECU tube as well.

Plug up the butterfly valve stem with the supplied vinyl cap like so



Step 3: use the long wierdly bent hose to relocate the Vacuum Switching Valve for Canister Closed Valve to the little bracket that holds the small fuse box next to the the driver side headlight. Attach the supplied breather filter to the end of the actuator.



step 4: Remove stock bumper

Step 5: Cut a small portion of the driver side wheel well plastics to allow room for the pipe to go thru.



Step 6: Use the coupler with sleeve to attach the two pipes together. make sure u push the pipes all the way in till they meet each other. Install the MAFS into the TPR intake



Step 7: Install the remaing coupler on the throttle body and maneuver the pipe in the engine bay. Stick the car in 5th and make sure the piping clears the linkage and lines up with the mounting bracket hole. once everything is clear tighten the bracket down and the throttle body coupler.






Step 8: Install the filter on the pipe



Step 9: Plug in the ECU fuse and put on your font bumper

Start the car and let it idle for a couple minutes then take it around the block a couple times revving thru out the entire RPM band. full ecu adapting should occur after about 50 miles.

yeah, everyone says removing the bumper is easy but I would love to see a sticky on that. Thing is if you never done it before you might break the plastic clips and have problems lining it up. I heard that once you remove it, you can never line it up tight on the sides as before, wonder if that is true...

^^ No it's not true. I am pretty dumb when it comes to DIY, but i Got the bumper off and on by myself. Only problem i had was getting the screws linned up under the lip for the grill.

I just bought an ebay 2 piece ebay replica cold air intake. To reset the ecu do you have to pull out the fuse or can you just disconnect the negative battery cable?
And where do you think I can find the yellow vinyl cap used to Plug up the butterfly valve stem.

Cai

hey i already got AEM CAI installed and im not sure if the guys that installed my CAI took that fuse out before he started the installation. so my question, is it to late to unplug the fuse or is it okay to unplug still just to reset the ECU? or does it matter cause i've already been driving the car for awhile.
