*This will have more content added later once completed*

I will be using the Magnum FLOW Pro 5R Air Filter instead of the Mopar filter that comes for the first 100 miles, then switch to the Mopar Washable filter that comes with the CAI for a hundred miles to see if there is any noticeable difference in power, sound, and MPG. I personally doubt it but you never know. If there is I will do another thread on that. If no difference then i will just add it here.

First Step:
Remove old airbox lid, air tube, O2 Sensor, and Breather Hose.

(Engine bay picture is not my engine bay (random one from Google Search) as I did not have the foresight to take a before picutre. Added the red showing on what to remove/Disconnect)

Second Step:
Install air tube onto the lid of the airbox and reinstall the intake, I left the clamp on the hose loose attaching the top of the airbox so that I can rotate it to properly bolt the lid to the bottom of the airbox and then proceeded to tighten the airbox, connect the hose to the throttle body, then the front bolts, tighten clamps, then reconnect the breather hose and the O2 sensor.
(picture coming soon).

The CAI has a much larger diameter than the stock airbox outlet and hose.

Note: Steps 1 and 2 take about 15 minutes to complete. The remaining steps are optional as you do NOT have to cut the hood but you will have to if you want a true CAI.


Third Step:
I removed the C O N letters off the side as the O and the N are going to be cut. My concern is that once this is done, and I want to remove the letters, I can see potential problems later. Also decided this is the perfect time to name her.: Rubi Hella, Rubi, or Hella Rubi. Not sure which of the three to go with. Will probably end up with just Rubi.
Going with at least Rubi since ever Jeeper refers to the Rubicon as Rubi.
