General Assembly

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 two bolts holding the vapor pressure sensor bracket, using a 10mm socket.

4. Cut off the plastic tie that holds the wiring harness to the OEM intake tube.

5. Using a 10mm socket, remove the three bolts holding the OEM intake system.

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

7. Remove the clamp that retains the factory air intake tube to the turbo inlet duct.

NOTE: 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.

8. Begin removing the assembly by sliding the tube out of the turbo inlet.

9. Grab the airbox assembly with both hands and pull up until you feel a pop. Pull the assembly out of the engine bay.

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

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

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

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

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

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

15. Slide the supplied hose onto the vacuum manifold.

16. Take the supplied plastic barbed hose elbow and thread it into the Banks intake tube. The barbed end should be at the 6 o’clock position.

17. Once the fitting is installed, connect the open end of the hose to the fitting. Make sure you can make a loop with the hose, as shown.

18. Install the rubber grommet for the IAT sensor onto the intake tube.

19. Place the larger supplied hose clamp onto the filter.

20. Place the smaller hose clamp over the factory turbo inlet duct.

21. Install the Banks intake tube by first inserting the large end into the filter and then the smaller end into the OEM turbo inlet duct. Align the duct to the indent on the tube. Align the arrows on the tube and filter. Tighten both clamps.

22. Reinstall the vapor pressure sensor bracket with the factory bolts using a 10mm socket.

23. Insert the IAT sensor into the rubber grommet.

24. Reinstall the two plastic tubes into the vacuum manifold by pushing until you hear a click.
