    One of the first and most popular upgrades for the TC is adding an intake. This is an installation guide for a short ram intake (in this case the Weapon R Secret Weapon).

    Step 1: Before starting 99% of any engine modification, you want to disconnect the negative. This is especially important for the ECU to adjust to the new intake.

    Step 2: Remove the screws holding on the MAF sensor and the loosen the clamp holding the airbox to the intake tube. Remove the MAF sensor from the intake.

    Step 3: Disconnect the clips holding the airbox lid to the airbox. Remove the lid and air filter.

    Step 4: Remove the 3 10mm bolts holding the bottom of the airbox to the car frame and remove the airbox.

    Step 5: It?s time to remove the intake tubing that goes into the fender. There are 2 points where a plastic screw is holding it down, one on each side of the tubing. The plastic end holding down the intake tubing is open-ended, a quick pull of the intake tubing will take it out.

    Step 6: The second one is a little hidden but a quick pull will get it out.

    Step 7: Next remove the valve cover to get access to the intake vacuum line.

    Step 8: Now unclip the vacuum line at the cylinder head. Retain the metal clip because you will need to use it again.

    Step 9: Remove the other side of the vacuum line and also remember to keep this clip.

    Step 10: Now unclip the set of rubber lines connected to the intake.

    Step 11: Use a vise grip to compress the clip holding the intake tubing to the throttle body. Remove the tubing from the engine bay.

    Step 12: Connect the coupler between the throttle body and intake tube.

    Step 13: Now connect the filter to the other end of the intake tubing with the other coupler. On the first metal clip remember to include the small metal bar that will anchor the intake in the engine bay.

    Step 14: Here is that metal anchor. Screw it into the engine bay in the hole that was previously used to bolt the airbox too.

    [​IMG]

    Step 15: Connect the supplied vacuum line with the stock metal clip to intake.

    [​IMG]

    Step 16: Do the same for cylinder head.

    [​IMG]

    Step 17: Attach the MAF sensor to the intake.

    [​IMG]

    Step 18: Now re-attach the negative to the battery. Make sure all the screws and bolts are tight. Now start the car and let it idle for about 5 minutes. Than take the car out and let rip!
