It has probably been covered, but if you look at your engine bay, it is really easy.

Taking it apart:

1) Unscrew four bolts to engine cover and remove cover
2) Take off the two T-Bolt clamps on stock intake pipe and remove pipe

If you are installing a JoeZ or PLP, then just replace the stock intake pipe with the aftermarket one with accompanying couplers and clamps.

If you have another intake, (other than above) let us know and somebody will help you put that one on. Others are equally as easy, unless you need to hook up the SRT R-ECU. This has been covered as well, just search for it.

What kind of intake did you get?

Honestly, it took me twice as long to take the stock one off as it did to install the new one..... That's not including the trip to Walmart at "crack:30" to get the right tools....

See if the manufacturer has the instructions on their website..

If you bought a used "Joe Z" -> let me know and I can e-mail the simple install instructions to you...

Otherwise let us know what you have and we will help on here.

I'll look to see if I kept the instructions Injen sent me. If I kept them, they should be in the box. If I find them, I'll shoot you a pm for your email then scan and shoot them over to you....
I would think the install would be pretty close. At least enough to help you figure it out. And the removal would obviously be the same.....

Yo man, intake is the easiest thing ever. You see a screw, you remove it. You see another one, remove it, until the whole intake comes off. Then for install. you see a screw, and a hole, you stick it together and tighten it, and do that until the intake is on. Don't need no installation guidelines or how to. If I was in Kansas City, I'll come over and help you out. I love installing intakes, its fun and easy
