Section 1: Removal of Factory Intake

  1. Remove the IAT sensor. Pull the locking clips towards you and twist counter clockwise about 45 degrees until it stops rotating. Pull the sensor out of the factory intake tube.

2. Unhook the 2 clips securing the IAT harness to the factory intake tube. Pull the sensor and harness out of the way.

3. Unhook the coolant hose from the factory intake tube if equipped.

4. Remove the crankcase vent line from the factory intake tube by pressing on the grey tab and pulling away from the tube.

5. Using an 8mm or 5/16″ nut driver, loosen the clamp holding the factory intake tube to the throttle body.

6. Using a 10mm socket, remove the 2 bolts securing the factory intake tube to the vehicle’s fan shroud. These will not be reused.

7. Using a 10mm socket, remove the bolt securing the factory intake box to the inner fender.

8. Remove the complete factory intake from the vehicle. Grip the intake tube hose with your right hand and make sure that it is free from the throttle body.

Grip the neck of the factory intake housing with your left hand. Lift up until the two grommets holding the bottom of the housing onto the vehicle release.

9. Remove the two grommets from the legs on the bottom of the factory intake housing.

They will be reused on the Banks Ram-Air system.

Section 3: Installing Banks Ram-Air System

1. Insert the factory grommets into the two holes in the vehicle.

2. Install the mounting pegs to the Banks Ram-Air intake housing. Push the legs out of the holes in the bottom of the housing and slide the retaining clips into the grooves.

3. Install the Banks Air Filter into the Banks Ram-Air intake housing.

NOTE: Make sure that the arrow on the filter is positioned towards the top and pointing down.

4. Install the housing into the vehicle. Line up the pegs to the grommets and push down until you feel them pop into the grommets.

Slide the appropriate hose clamps onto the Banks hose. Slide the smaller end onto the throttle body. Leave the clamps loose.

5. Install the supplied grommet into the IAT port in the Banks intake tube.

6. Install the Banks intake tube. First insert the tube into the air filter opening. Next insert the tube into the Banks hose at the throttle body.

NOTE: Take care not to pinch or trap the pcv line under the tube. Line up the arrows on the filter and tube before tightening all three hose clamps.

7. Install the IAT sensor into the Banks intake tube. Position the locking tube in the 9 o’clock position.

8. Push the PCV line onto the aluminum fitting of the Banks intake tube.

NOTE: Make sure that the connector clicks into place and is locked.

9. Install the factory bolt through the Banks housing and into the inner fender.

Make sure the housing is in place and the gaps around it are even before tightening the bolt.

10. Install the Banks window onto the housing using a Philips screwdriver and the four supplied screws. Apply the thread locker on the screws to prevent them from backing out over time.
