Remove battery cables (to reset ecu). Remove airbox. Remove 2 coolant hoses (not that big of a deal) replace with provided hoses. Swap maf sensor. Screw in vibration isolation mount. Place heat shield in place and secure with nut onto one of the battery hold downs. Slide coupler over throttle body. Put both hose clamps loosely over coupler. Slide intake into coupler. Install filter. Put the last nut on vibration mount. Done!

It's something I've always done. Sometimes you can get a CEL from an intake if you don't do it. It happened once when I installed a injen cai on my friend's 09 Si. Also, it's a safety thing. In the unlikely event that something gets shorted out or someone starts the car while you're working on it.

I'm close to also getting the takeda intake. Cheapest website I found it on is kspecracing.com for $200.58 shipping included. I emailed their representative for a coupon and was told that's the best they can do for the intake. Please let me know if you find a better deal

Nice! I'm wanting to get my custom Magnaflow dual exhaust installed first, then go for the intake. I'm missing 2 Magnaflow mufflers and waiting on Adv Auto Parts to discontinue the promotion on their Magnaflow mufflers. I'll save $17 each muffler once the promotion ends so I can apply coupons.

Gotta love coupon codes! Sometimes I'll walk around the store and add things to my online cart. Then pay for it online and pick it up in the same store for 30% off lol.

Lol that's the best way to do it! I'm all about savings! I found out today that summitracing.com will beat any online price by $1. They have free and fast shipping for me too because their warehouse is in GA and I'm in FL. Normally takes 1-2 business days tops. Their the best company I found so far for getting the best prices and carry a variety of car parts

Have to thank you on the kspec link. Waiting on a Injen from them and they are the best price. Book marked them in anticipation of opening my wallet a lot to them.

Again thanks for the link in a previous thread.

Sure it's not needed, but if you want your ECU to relearn the new amount of air its taking in, then YES YOU DO WANT TO RESET THE ECU.

And you don't simply just unplug it. You need to touch the negative and positive wire connectors together.

You would think the MAF senses the larger amount of air coming in, but that is not the case. This is a common procedure for many cars when installing intakes.

When you buy the Takeda SRI it comes with instructions of how to remove the old intake and install the SRI. Pretty simple. You can note the instructions DO NOT mention resetting the ECU via battery cable removal, although there cannot be any harm in doing that.

There are PDFs on AFE website for the same instructions, just google AFE takeda 1019 pdf, for the instructions, should be the first link.

What do you mean by touch positive and negative wire together ? I never restart ecu before.
