This question is for anyone who has put a Takeda SRI on a 9th gen 4 cyl. I was looking at the install instructions and it says something about changing a coolant line? Is this necessary? And if so, is it tough to do? I understand the vacuum line from the intake manifold, but why do you need to change the other line? I've put on intakes before and never had to reroute coolant/vacuum lines.

The kit comes with new coolant hoses. Yeah it's necessary. The hardest part about replacing them is accessing the hose clamps. It's not too bad at all.

I have a Injen CAI and had to do the same thing. I was a bit concerned also. It is a piece of cake. You are just removing some preformed small hoses and using provided pieces to remake the connections. Very easy and no worries at all.

I do need to snap some pictures of all the stuff that is removed from the install of a CAI. Hard to believe the air flow goes through so many parts and boxes and such.

I saw that you leave all the other ductwork in when putting in a SRI. Is there any advantage to removing all the lower ductwork? I don't know if the SRI uses any of the air coming in through the stock intake ductwork.

Taking it out saves two pounds of weight. That's about it.

SRI no need to take it out, CAI it has to come out. In a CAI the duct work on the hood empty's cold air right onto the CAI filter. SRI it would make little difference.

I am planning on leaving my ductwork so that way during highway driving cool air is routed directly to SRI. Since where I live some roads tend to flood during rainy season I don't want a cold air since i have friends that have hydrolocked their engines. Those 2 pounds u are trying to take out have negligible effect its like not bringing a bottle of water in ur car cause it adds weight and ur gonna lose a race with ur friend. :dunno:
