Basically you follow the air intake tube down to towards the passenger side of the car. It leads into a casing that's shaped just like the filter (kind of like a square with a corner cut off). You pop off the plastic panels covering everything (I think I had to take off all three panels). Then you unhinge the casing for the filter. If I remember correctly, the only tool I may have had to use was a screwdriver to unhook one hinge, but almost everything can be done by hand. Switch out the filter, pop all the plastic "hooks" back in, and you're done. I'm not terribly handy when it comes to cars, but I did it all in under 10 minutes.
nice, thank you for the response

Thanks, I talked to someone about just insulating and theyve said that is extremely time consuming in itself. I guess I just wanted a ballpark idea of how much a reasonable cost would be before I dive into learning it myself which I could. Time is money
