1: Take off all of your stock airbox assembly going all the way to the throttle body and also be sure to take out your battery and the tray. You will need to take off you wheel well liner since this is in the way of the resinator.
2: When you get all this off you will need to make the stock hole going to the resinator bigger and then you should be able to install the new setup

Sorry about the quick write up but i'm running short on time, post again if you need more help.....=)

Yeah, you dremel the hole bigger. You will need about 10-12 metal cutting blades. You need to make the hole about 1.5" wider. You will need to cut part of the battery tray as well. When you are done cutting, get some vacuume hose slit it length wise and place it around the edges of the hole. Now just piece the intake together and you are done.

You'll also want to pick up an AEM cold-air bypass valve.

This keeps water from getting into the intake and causing hydrolock(i think thats what its called) in your internals.
I think kevin (P11GT) has pics of his HotShot with the bypass valve put on...check his website if you want an idea of where to place it.

Do I need to do this first or can I wait and add it later ? What's Kev's Url ?

You can add the bypass valve later, it just goes inline with the intake.

I just got my intake earlier this week. Being in Phoenix, it is dry pretty much year round. So, I am going to pass on the bypass valve, at least for now. I imagine with the filter being where it is, you would have to be pretty hard pressed to get water into it. You would have to run through pretty deep water to suck water in, and at that point I would think you would have more to worry about.

PICS

Fresh from the the Digital Racer Facilities in in MagicLand





HOT SHOT INSTALLED with ALTIMA Strut Bar from ebay



I love the sound from this ... a slight growl nothing to be embarrassed by like a whiney honda...

In my automatic, definately a better pull off the line and more torquey feeling. The temp def. is cooler becuase in Miami the air is really hot but I can turn on the ac and the car does not crawl as much .....

All in all I like it so far ... makes me want more power !!:p
