Short Ram to Cold Air Intake Conversion

Hello all...Figured I write another guide for the ones wanting to learn. I had the injen intake configured to short ram. Well this caused a problem. The engine movement kept banging the filter into the fan guard damaging the filter. So I went ahead and installed the rest of the intake.

So first pics are of the damaged filter and what it was hitting.





So lets begin, Keep in mind I started from the short ram set-up so if you need any help installing the short ram, as always you can pm me.

This is the bottom part of the stock air box you need to remove to install the full cold air intake. The circle shows the first bolt you need to undo.

*Note* For this install you need a 10mm socket (Deep well) and a extension.



Now to access the next few bolts you need to pull the splash shield back. This is held on by some plastic screws and 2 bolts which you need a phillips screwdriver.

*Note* Jack up the car if no rack is available and remove the wheel for easier access.



Now after you have moved the splash shield, you can access the rest of the bolts as shown.


This one is sorta hidden to the left of the box, may have to pull the box towards the wheel to see it.



Now put your filter on the adapter as shown.
*Note* may not be the same for everyone, remember this is a injen intake.


To make things easier put your filter on first... put the tubing in place as if you are going to install and rotate the filter so the bracket matches with the bolt hole as pictured.
*This is the whole where the bolt was hidden to the left of the box*

Now when everything fits right go ahead and connect all your tubing together and bolt the filter bracket in place.



The injen tubing is a bitch to mess with...To help slide the tubing on, dip your finger in the power steering fluid and rub it on the OUTSIDE of the rim to help slide it on.

Once everything is in place and all your clamps are tightend down...GRATZ! you are finished.

As you can see your filter is well protected from water.


So now just snap your splash shield back in place, put your wheel on and enjoy your cold air intake!

I hope this helps...I know they come with instructions but mine was in black and white and kinda hard to see. Plus you can always pm me and I will help the best I can. The reason I joined the club!

My next few guides will deal wit hthe suspension, motor mounts , and later on Nitrous!!

Dude maybe i just can't see it correctly but ur supposed to have a rubber mount for the the connector in the engine and one for the filter to give it some leway when the engine torques....i don't see one for u in ur filter pic.

going to try this, lot cheaper then buying an intake and just having the short ram sit around. where did you get your hands on the hose, and the adapter, local shops dont quite have it, also how long and how wide is the opening on both ends of the hose?

thanks

If he bought Injen it can be used as SRI or CAI. The black "hose" if this is what you are talking about comes with the kit.

wish I had better news for you but maybe injen sells replacement parts or conversion to older sri to cai kits? doesn't hurt to contact them and find out

Yes you are, also quick question for anyone who has the short ram in. Does yours create a sort of short repetitive belt or whistle noise near the 2000 to 3000 rpm range? I've been getting it and only when I'm light on the gas

Yes I have a short ram and mine whistles too. It took me a while to get used to it but now I kinda like hearing it.

Well sadly I don't always get the lovely whistle but get a funky repetitive annoying sound that sounds like a belt.

I've used sri and cai and mine sounds like a squeak most of the time and some times a whistle. I recently added a shield and a hydroshield and the squeak is more whistle than squeak now, lol.

So I recently installed my DC cold air intake and it's been making this squeaking noise when ever I accelerate then stop after a few seconds. What could it be????

Normally just plug the resonator on top of the engine. I got a 2$ autozone bolt that expands when tight. Put all stock related things in a box in the garage 🙂
