through from start to finish before starting the actual installation.
pliers, possibly a straight bladed screwdriver
- Remove stock
air cleaner housing by removing the wing nuts on its top
and after loosing the flexible hose connectors to the
exhaust manifold and the intake air silencer, then lift
the air cleaner vertically to clear the two mounting studs.
If the flexible hose connectors to the exhaust manifold
and intake silencer (black cylinder about 8 inch in dia.,
mounted on the passenger fender well) prove difficult,
use a screw driver to pry them loose. Usually they can
be twisted loose with your hands. Save the stock air cleaner.
- Remove and
save the flexible hose connectors from the exhaust manifold
and from the intake silencer.
- Remove the
air cleaner mounting stud(s) from the throttle body (they
are about 10 inches long, sticking up vertically from
the throttle body, i.e. the same stud(s) from which you
removed the wing nuts. Note where they thread into the
throttle body (a half inch behind its longitudinal center
line). You may be able to remove the studs with your hands,
I find it easier to use the pliers on the unthreaded portion
of the stud. Save the stock studs.
- Save all
of the above parts in case you want to return the vehicle
to its original configuration.
the threaded rod(s) furnished with the Alcone Engineering
air induction and filtration housing in place of the factory
mounting studs you just removed. Finger tight is good
enough, but you can use the pliers to tighten, just stay
away from the ends that thread into the throttle body
or the wing nuts.
- Place the
base of the Alcone Engineering air induction and filtration
housing on the throttle body, aligning the holes in the
turning vane with the two mounting studs.
- Place the
filter element on the air induction and filtration housing
base taking care to center it (check that the base extends
beyond the element equally all around).
- Place the
top of the air induction and filtration housing on top
of the filter element, aligning the two holes in the top
with the mounting studs.
the installation by installing and tightening the wing
nuts on the mounting studs, finger tight is fine.
is now complete. Note for increased access to the engine
you may want to remove (but save) the air intake silencer.
