Bill of Materials

Use caution when working in the engine compartment. Make sure the engine has been OFF for several hours and cool. Some components from the stock air intake system will remain in service. Take caution when removing stock components.

Section 2: Removal of the factory intake system

1. Remove the IAT sensor. Pull the locking clip towards you and twist counter-clockwise about 45 degrees until it stops rotating.

2. Unhook the two clips securing the IAT harness to the factory intake tube. Pull the sensor and harness out of the way. Wrap in a shop towel to avoid any damage to the sensor.

3. Remove the plastic lines from the air filter housing by pressing on the grey tabs and pulling away from the housing.

4. Remove the two bolts holding the vapor pressure sensor bracket.

5. Cut off the plastic tie that holds the wiring harness to the air duct housing.

6. There are three hard-mounted locations for the air duct assembly.

7. Using a 10mm socket, remove the three bolts retaining the air duct to the core support.

8. Remove the pair of hoses from the airbox.

These connectors are pretty stiff and can be tricky to remove.

9. Press the grey release button, then slide the connector off of the coupling.

Remove the top hose first, then the hose on the bottom.

10. Remove the clamp that retains the air duct to the turbo inlet.

11. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the tab away from the teeth of the clamp.

12. Move to the opposite side now, and loosen the hose clamp.

13. Before removing the entire assembly, take note of the sensor connection highlighted in the photo.

IMPORTANT: Be careful not to break the clip that holds the connector in place.

14. Begin removing the assembly by sliding the hose out of the turbo inlet.

15. Grab the airbox assembly with both hands and pull up until you feel a pop.

16. Now you can pull the assembly out of the engine bay.

17. Remove the coupler that feeds into the turbo inlet out of the rubber housing.

18. Before installing your new Banks Ram-Air kit, remove the rubber grommets from the factory airbox and into the engine bay.

19. It’s very important that you install the grommets into the engine bay and DO NOT onto the Banks airbox.

20. Flip the Banks Ram-Air box upside down for access to the two peg holes.

21. Slide one aluminum peg through one hole and secure it with the retaining clip using needle nose plyers. Repeat for the other peg.

22. Install the Banks air filter into the Banks airbox and make sure the arrow on the filter is on top.

Again, make sure the arrow is on top for proper installation.

23. Install the Banks Ram-Air box into the engine bay by pressing down until it pops into the rubber grommets.

24. Secure the Banks Ram-Air box to the sidewall by using the factory bolt and a 10mm socket.

25. Now to assemble the duct and its components. Slide the supplied hose onto the coupler.

26. Take the supplied plastic nipple and insert it into the brass fitting.

27. Go slow and be careful to not over-tighten. The fitting should be at the 6 o’clock position when you are done.

28. Once the insert is installed, connect the open end of the hose to the insert just to see how it fits. Make sure you can make a loop with the hose, as shown.

29. Push the rubber grommet for the inlet air temperature sensor onto the duct elbow.

30. Place the supplied hose clamps in position.

Put the larger one on the air filter and the smaller one on the turbo inlet.

31. Bring the Banks Ram-Air duct and placing it in alignment so that the arrow on the duct meets the arrow on the filter.

32. Push the duct into the filter until you feel it pop into place.

33. Slide the other end of the duct into the turbo inlet housing until you feel it sit into place.

34. Secure the hose clamp onto the turbo inlet with an 8mm socket.

35. For the hose clamp at the air filter, use a flathead screwdriver to tighten the clamp.

36. Reinstall the vapor pressure sensor bracket with the 10mm bolts from the factory.

37. Insert the inlet air temperature sensor into the rubber grommet.

38. Reinstall the vapor hose in the supplied coupling by pushing until you hear a click.

39. Do the same thing for the vacuum boost hose. You should have a loop when this is done.

40. Install the clear Banks Ram-Air cover using the supplied screws.
