    1. Remove air tube from throttle body and from air box.

    2. Remove throttle cables from bell crank on throttle body. You should be able to remove these without loosening the adjustment nuts.

    3. Remove bolts holding the stock throttle cable bracket to the upper intake plenum.
4. Install new throttle bracket relocation plate where the original bracket was using supplied hardware. Some early models will require the square bracket on the rear of the intake.
    5. Remove throttle body from intake plenum (Most models use three bolts and one nut). The throttle body does not need to come completely off the vehicle so you can keep most of the lines connected to the throttle body. If you do remove lines be sure that they go back in the same place they started (a camera can be a useful tool to see where everything came from).
    6. Remove the one stud from manifold (Should be the lower left hand mount point).
    7. Clean all gasket surfaces.

    8. Install throttle body spacer using new gaskets and hardware supplied in kit. Use white thermal gasket on the intake side of the spacer.

    9. Install original throttle cable bracket onto the new relocation plate using original hardware.
    10. Install throttle cable back onto bell crank. Cables may need to be adjusted. Verify cable actuation from closed to full throttle.

    11. Install air tube back into airbox and throttle body. Air tube will push into the upper radiator hose slightly. This will cause no concerns but the upper hose may be modified (Trim end slightly) or loosen the clamps and twist the upper hose slightly to create extra clearance.
