Alright well I was looking around and thought it would be nice to have something to show the do it yourselfers that this install isnt hard. Since ive been on this forum ive noticed a few people ask where they should go to have their Srt Intake installed? Trust me its not that hard.
1) Phillips and Flathead Screwdriver
2) 10mm Socket and Rachet
3) Extension for the Socket
4) Soldering Iron or Gun (Your Preference)
5) Solder (Of Course)
6) Wire Strippers
7) Electrical tape
Now to get started
First thing you wanna do it disconnect your negative cable off your battery
Next thing we need to do is take off the OEM Intake system. First you gotta take the engine cover off which is being held on by 4 nuts. Once that is taken off take you phillips screwdriver and take off your MAF sensor on your intake tube.
Then there should be another sensor on the right side of the airbox being held on by a 10mm bolt. Take that off and disconnect the tubing to the airbox.
Now to take the intake off. There should be 3 10mm bolts holding the box in. This is where your extension comes in handy to get down and get them. Now you need to take off the bracket off up where the intake goes in to.
Once that is loose your will need to play around with it as it might be stuck on there abit. Once that is ready to come off disconnect the hose attached to the intake tubing up top. Now your intake should come out.
Next thing you wanna do it get the heat shield that came with your kit and put that in where your OEM airbox was.
Now you can install your new Srt Intake piping on just like the oem piping. Air filter will need to go on after you get the piping on and through the heatshield. Once that it on there connect your MAF sensor on your new piping with the new bolts that came with the kit. Make sure you have it on the right way (Should be an arrow). Your want the arrow pointing the way the air is flowing (Into the engine, Not towards your filter). Now we should be ready to move onto the ecu install.
First you need to take the 3 10mm bolts off of the cars ecu cover located behind the drivers side headlight.
Take off the cover, then you will need to unclip the white cover over the wire harness of the ecu.
Ok now for the stripping of the wires. You will only need to remove the insulation from the wires besides 1. The other 1 need will need to cut the wire. There is a few wires u might need to dig around to look for in the harness but easy to find. If you need to remove some of the tape holding the wires tight together. I only need to do this for 1 of the wires. Now this all depends on your year of the car. My car is a 01 so I followed the 01 Diagram.
Now finding the wires( in the pic above im on the drivers side looking down at the ecu.
In the red box (above pic) the 12v Black/Red wire is the first 1 in the left upper corner.
In the black box The Ground (Brown) wire is the first 1 in the left upper corner. The Sensor 1 (Green/Black) wire is *starting from the left upper corner* is 3 over and the 2nd one down. Sensor 2 (White/Red) wire is *starting from the right upper corner* is the 2nd one over.
In the blue box The Ignition RPM (Black/Red) wire is 3 over and the 2nd one down.
Now remember you dont need to cut them all just strip the insulation away. The wire you need to cut is Sensor 1 (Green/Black).
I just stripped all the wires first then moved on to soldering instead of doing 1 at a time.
Here is the diagram if the wording above was confusing enough
Now take the correct color wire from the Srt ecu and match them with the correct wires on the oem ecu from the above diagram (Remember, Above pic is for 01 model). The pic below is for the 02+
To start just wrap the wires around each other then solder.
Remember to use electrical tape and wrap them up good. Can be difficult because the wires are so close together(Maybe try liquid electrical tape)? You should have enough room in the ecu to put the Srt ecu in there. Then put the cover back on and bolt it up.
Now just bolt the engine cover back on and reconnect the battery and make sure everything is picked up before trying to start the car so you dont not drops and hits the fan
When your all finished it should look like this
If you have any questions or compliants about this please let me know so I can fix it asap. I know I got poor grammar so please tell me if something is mispelled haha.
Of course remember to put the coupler on the ram air. forgot to take a picture with it on.
If you having any trouble referr to the pic below
Enjoy your new Srt Intake!!
this method is THE BEST BY FAR!!!!! it is EASY & FAST!!! & relatively CHEEP too!!!!
OK... i just figgered this out last weekend...arguably the BEST method i have EVER used to clean Cotton gauze air filter media....i have been cleaning these types of filtersd for about 20 years :o now & nothing REALLY seemed to CLEAN the stuff thoroughly......
This started because i have an SRT intake w/a AFE filter, & i was cleaning it the usual way: spray on the cleaner let it sit.. .rinse it out... blah blah... it seemed to work OK... but i could ALWAYS still see dirt & crap stuck into the filter media down deep in the grooves/pleats... this was pissing me off... so i cleaned it three times the last time ...
soak with filter cleaner..let sit, .rinse...
soak again w simple green, let sit in the HOT sun...& rinse...
then AGAIN, soak with with orange glow cleaner & simple green then let sit & rinse....
STILL there was dirt & bug parts & oil grime down in the pleats & even at the ends of the outside pleats..... WTF!! & you DO NOT want to blast it from the inside with a water or air hose.. .you will damage the cotton that needs to stay in good shape to filter properly....
Then..I had an idea..
I got a small bucket... dumped two scoops of that Oxy clean crap /powder in it & then placed the filter in there.....next i poured 1 1/2 $1.39 2 liter bottles of generic CLUB SODA in the bucket.....(about 3 litres total...dep on the bucket you use...use a smaller one to use less Club Soda etc...)
WELL!!! that shit bubbled & foamed up almost Instantly & this greasy dirty film & TONS of dirt & crap just freaking JUMPED out of the filter gauze!!!!! the foam was all topped with this yellow filter oil & dirt & grime & bug detritus .. .it was amazing that all this crap was STILL in there after cleaning it traditionally 3 times..... the Club Soda was the trick for SURE the carbonation in that just 'boiled' the crap out of the cotton gauze fibers instantly...!!
SOO much crap came out i ended up using a piece of paper to scoop the nasty oily grime & dirt & such that was riding on top of the foam in the bucket out & dumped it so i would not have to lift the filter up & out thru that shit.... i swirled the filter around in the solution for about 3- 4 minutes & then let it sit for a minute or three.....finally I just shook it in the solution for a few seconds & pulled it out... OMG.. .it was CLEANER than NEW!!! I mean it was SPARLKING clean!!!! elapsed time: 10 minutes MAX!!
ALSO....this is VERY gentle on your filter media.. .(cotton gauze) & is MUCH better than blasting it with water & or air trying to rinse out the crap or blow it out all of which are highly discouraged by the filter makers....
let it dry properly, (Note without all that residual grease & grime still clogging the filter.. .it WILL DRY MUCH FASTER :D!) then oil it up & reinstall.... i actually have two filters so i do not have to wait on drying & oiling the filter to drive my car when cleaning filters i just keep one all oiled & clean & ready then i can take my time cleaning drying & oiling up the other one....
you can use ANY cleaning degreasing solution I would imagine...it was the Club soda not the 'Oxy clean' that made the HUGE difference.. but feel free to copy this method to a 'T' if you want to....
this should be a sticky!!!
you are all welcome....!!
I just tried helping out another member and figured it would be useful. Sorry for the bad pictures, I did not have enough lighting and my camera is not the best.
I forgot to add this step. This step is very important.
Be sure to clean these items too which are on the MAF sensor as well.
I think you took it the wrong way. Thanks for being helpful!
Also, please reduce your signature to 5 lines or less.
Good write up but when doing this mod there is no need to take the negitive battery cable off. your just switching intake pipes and it really isnt going to mess with the air flow going into ur engine. and beside your sensor is before the joe-z pipe so there is nothing to recalculate.
