Unplug the mass air meter. Remove the two mass air bracket to strut tower bolts. Slide the mass air boot to air box clamp out of position. Loosen the air inlet tube clamp. Remove the mass air and inlet tube assembly from the vehicle.

Loosen the two clamps at the mass air and separate the mass air meter from the boot and tube. Remove the three bracket bolts from the bottom of the mass air. Remove the two air box retaining nuts. And then remove the air box from the car.

Remove the three air silencer retaining nuts. From underneath the fender, you can fully remove the air silencer from the car. Back up top, remove the two rubber insulators. Clean up the area if needed.

Slide the elbow tube through the fender plate and install the fender plate using the supplied hardware. Slide the boot with the lip in the middle of it on the end of the elbow tube. Slide two clamps into place.

Put the mass air in the boot. Slide the smaller boot on the other end of the mass air. Slide on two more clamps. Put on the remaining boot to the throttle body and two more clamps. Finally, install the inlet tube.

Making sure there's clearance at the strut tower and inlet tube, tighten all the clamps and reconnect the mass air meter. From underneath the fender, you can install the air filter onto the elbow tube and tighten the clamp.

See? That didn't take very long at all. You'll notice we did not use the bracket included with the kit. This is because, well, mainly my personal preference. I don't like putting them on, because sometimes it just makes things a lot more difficult. You can use yours if you desire. You can check out more SVE performance products for your Fox Mustang at
