Default Cold Air Intake Install

Originally Posted by Murderotica

Materials:
-Intake tubing ($19.99usd from AutoZone; comes in black, red, yellow, blue and chrome)
-Cone filter (Various prices depending on brand--I used a red K&N filter I got for $23usd at Baxter's Auto Parts a while ago)

Tools:
-Philips screwdriver
-10mm wrench
-Some other wrenches, don't remember sizes

Notes:
In most of these pictures, you can see that I don't have the stock pieces installed. This is because I forgot to take pictures when I first installed my intake and I am far too lazy to reinstall all of it just to take it out for educational purposes.
I am not responsible if you screw up any part of your car or the process.


Instructions:

First things first, make sure you have a well-lit working area, with plenty of space to set all the pieces we'll be pulling out. Also, it's a good idea to have a tray to set all the screws, nuts and bolts in.




1) Disconnect the positive and negative battery terminals; remove the battery.


2) There are three bolts holding the black tray that your battery sits on--unbolt it and remove it.



3) Remove the four screws holding the black half of the stock airbox onto the bottom half (there is one on each corner).



4) Take off the black part.



5) Remove the gigantic filter by removing the clamp and wiggling it vertically until it pops out of place and you can pull it out of the air box. The rest of the airbox is held in place by four bolts (each next to one of the screws you removed earlier), unbolt them and remove the rest of the airbox.


6) Get down underneath the front bumper under the area you've been working on, you should see several bolts (some of which hold up the front trim piece). Remove all the bolts that hold the plastic cover in place and pull this plastic piece down. [The big ugly black box in front of you is the resonator.] Push up on the intake hose from down here (or have a friend do it while you do this next part). Now from the top side of the engine bay, pull out on the two rubber pieces of intake tubing and unbolt the plastic piece and remove it too.




7) Hop back under and unscrew/unbolt the resonator, pull it out and toss it aside. [Then throw all this crap in the trash, unless you want to sell it on eBay.]

8) Extend the intake tubing completely and screw one of the included silicone couplers onto one end. Put other end into the filter and tighten it down with the clamp that came with the filter. The cone filter will reside where the resonator used to, so feed the opposite end up through the hole and into the engine bay. Now in the engine bay, run it along the front of your car, then up to the only remaining piece of your stock air hose. Slide the silicone coupler into this hose and tighten it down with the stock clamp (on the stock air hose). Get back under your Legend and bolt the plastic piece up into place.


9) Rev that beast up and hear it whistle!

Me likey, I was considering removing my air box and putting in a cone filter but I need to get a pipe cut to make it work. But I think I'm gonna use the flex tube instead to get me some cold air and let me legend breathe.

No one. All the pipes are pretty much the same, but in their own price. Just custom make one. It's a lot cheaper.

Sorry to Necro this but will the intake tubing you get at autozone work as a replacment for the upper part that hooks into the throttle body? as that portion of my hose is fubar'ed.

it's a tough fit, but yes. i had to warm it up before getting it on there. it's been fine for over a year. they have other tubing to make an CAI also. my same OEM intake tube was messed up too, that's why i put my SRI on. think it was like 30 or 40 bucks.
