Alright guys, since this is tarting to get trendy on the forums, i decided that, like my HID videos, this intake deserved a quick-How to video for the Noobs out there.


The only pluses to this tutorial over other are:

*Video
*No more "clunk" sound when hitting turns. (intake hitting stuff)
*Complete instructions on how to remove the stock airbox.
* MOST IMPORTANTLY: V-crease fix.
* ECU mounting


and the resulting sound:


and here are couple of Pictures,


I used part of the airbox mounting and i used that bracket to lock the ecu in place.
you can se it in this picture vvvv


and in this one too, i also zip tied it to 2 different spots.



and here you can see part of the zip tie, then some rubber like piece that i used to cushion it so it doesn't wiggle around and doesnt bump into anything.


and here's the final result, sorry its a night shot, but i forgot to take a morning one. It looks like i have a HUGE gap all the way to the bottom. it's not as cluttery as it looks.






tell me what you think. SORRY FOR THE CRAPPY FILMING.

Nice job man. I hate taking out the air box out of every car I've put an intake inside of lol. Hey just an idea, if there's a way for the moderators to possibly organize these DYI posts into a new area in the Forteforums. Like a DYI section. Just an idea! :)

Or maybe we could do DYI of the month to add another competitive edge to the fortefourms LOL

No problem, and thanks to Noodile and putting this video up. I'll add that 2.5" tube to prevent the V crease!

Please tell me you are planning to trim those zip ties up. It looks so ghetto that way.
I am, I've been looking for some heavy duty black ones. None of the ones in store are as thick/strong as the ones i have now. but yeah, i'm gonna trim it soon

Just a tip for everyone out there thats doing it, once you put the pipe in and you're putting the filter in, take your time, and slowly twist the filter on, and wiggle it till it goes over the 2 nipples. i trimmed it out of the video but it took me like 5 minutes to put the filter on.

Found this on a Supra forum. They're comparing intake air filters. The specter isn't there but it has similar results to the K&N, apparently the majority of the posts from the Supra owners didn't leave positive feedback on the Spectre air filter.

A lot of the Supra owners swear by Apexi.
Too bad they didn't test the AEM Dryflow series. Those are damn good filters that don't need oil.

On the air filter there is two rubber inserts that you can take out to make wider if you need. Take the first rubber insert out and put that over the stock tubing and the two nipples. It's easier to do that instead of trying to put the whole thing on at once. After you get the rubber insert over the two nipples, put the air filter over the rubber insert, it will go on much easier.

Mine didn't have it. there were 2 options infront of me.

1. 3" Filter
2. 3", 3.5". 4" filter. so i just went with 3" filter that had no insert :(

Just did it to my koup and honestly took less than 5 min with $35.
Bought an air filter and 2.5 inch ID connector from Canadian Tire.
Sound amazing but I can't really hear it while I'm driving since I got an SXR exhaust..
But great tip and great mod overall.

Thanks Noodile!!!

Picture and video up.
