    I know this is somewhat of a stupid question, but what is the easiest procedure to take off yoru existing intake airbox. I just got my mac intake and havent really had a change to put it in cus of school and work. BUt i took a look at the airbox, and didnt know exactly how to remove the bottom half of the airbox. Anyone with a detailed step by step process ?

    Unscrew the ring holding the tube to the box.

    Undo the clamp on the airbox.

    Move those aside.

    Pull up on the box and it pops right out.

    That should do it...

    actually man if there is room you should consider leaving the bottom half of the air box in.

    consider this....with out it the filter will suck in mostly HOT ENGINE AIR. However leaving the bottom half of it on "cool air" will still come in through the stop setup and if you place your filter right on top of the bottom half of the air box....boom you get 50% cool air, and 50% engine air...not bad thinkin eh?
