Re: Short ram installation quetion!

Do you know where it went before the short ram install?

Re: Short ram installation quetion!

This is the hose that controls the stock intake. It should have been attached to a solenoid that was mounted directly below the stock intake. If you follow one end, it will go to the back of the intake manifold and the other, into the fender area just behind the bumper. Get yourself a vacuum cap and cap it off at the intake manifold. All this was good for was to introduce more air into the intake at high RPMs but with your new intake, this is not needed. If you run the car like this, you will have idle problems and eventually get a CEL code. If this happens, disconnect the battery for 10 minutes, hook it back up and idle the car for a few minutes. this will clear the codes.

BTW, you can remove he solenoid it was attached to and just tie the connector on to something so it does not dangle. The cable only provides power to the solenoid and does not send data to the ECU.

Re: Short ram installation quetion!

I have a Short Ram intake also but that tube he is talking about is still connected to the solenoid. Do I have to unplug it and cap it off? Or is it just fine plugged in?

If you still have it attached to the solenoid, you don't need to cap it off as long as all of the vacuum lines are connected although it looks cleaner with all of the stock intake parts removed but then, that's a personal decision.

He removed the solenoid and ended up with a vacuum leak.

Just delete EVERYTHING and cap off the nipple at the intake manifold.

Re: Short ram installation quetion!

How hard is it to remove all the stock intake parts? Sorry for thread jacking

Depends what you mean by all. If you are wanting to remove ALL the stock air intake, it involves basically removing the front bumper to remove the stuff tucked up under there. The vacuum lines are pretty easy to remove.

Re: Short ram installation quetion!

I know yor taking your bumper off because of another reason but to anyone else who reads this you don't have to take the bumper off. just unbolt the inner fender well and pull it out from there. no reason to mess with the bumper. just wasted time.
